True or False? Your dog has a special identifier that is the equivalent of a fingerprint for humans.


According to the American Kennel Club, the answer to the question is TRUEEvery dog’s nose print is unique. No two dogs have the same.  Every bump and ridge is their own.


This is a true statement for another family pet — your cat!

When you pick up a camera which eye do you use to look through the viewfinder? Most people use their right eye. I would too, except, I can’t. My right eye is “lazy”.


At the age of 16, I went to the Bureau of Motor Vehicles to get my driver license. I was given an eye exam. The only letter on the eye chart that I could see with my right eye was the letter E — in part because I knew that was the letter at the top of the chart. When I was unable to distinguish any of the other letters with my right eye I was asked by the administrator, “What are you? Blind?”


That question echoed in my mind. I felt defeated and disabled, limited by my vision.


Maybe this is why, when I look through the lens, I am truly amazed by the details. It is the face that draws me in. I see every color in a pet’s eyes, every wisp of fur, and the uniqueness of every animal.


To this day I have a choice to make. I can say, “If only I had two good eyes then I would be a better photographer.” Or I can say, “I only need one good eye to look through my camera –and that is what I have!”


It’s in those moments of taking a picture that I celebrate what I can see, every detail of God’s creation, and I am thankful for one good eye.


My “vision” is limitless.
