Wow. I thought that yesterday's photo was quite obvious! As you probably can tell by today's photo, it was a close-up (macro) of Decker's nose/nostril. He saw me with the camera the other day, and being the HUGE ham that he is, he came over and posed. The dog is a camera hound (No pun intended. . .HA!). So, Abe Lincoln was correct in his guess!
I do want to point out that the dog's nose is quite amazing. Until I took the close-up of Decker's nose, I had not noticed the white spots on it. Decker loves to sunbathe, and most mornings, he'll find where the sunlight comes through the windows and fall asleep in the sun. His nose, as you may have noticed, is quite dark. Kasey, our female, is not wild about sleeping in the sun, and her nose is quite a bit lighter.
(Side note: As I write this, we are watching The Great American Dog. I think they missed a good one [See photo above. ;-)].)
By the way, Decker was a little insulted that people thought his nose a slimy creature. He insists that he's a superior being! :-)
