I took these photos of Cap and Bugsy playing on Monday afternoon. They’ve become quite the pair of anything-goes competitors (the only thing we haven’t seen yet is kick-boxing). We’ve had other opportunities in recent weeks to take some photos of them in action, but every time they hear the door open as we step out with the camera, or Cap sees us, they break off and run to us. So this time I took the photos through the glass of the storm door and had to shoot over the railings on the front porch. Bugsy is completely blind but weighs three times what Cap does, yet Cap is one-eyed and wily, so it turns out to be pretty even competition. In the photo above, Bugsy is delivering a right hook.

Unless, of course, you’re blind and you suddenly lose, um, sight of your opponent, which can make things a bit awkward:

The second round of the Shelter Challenge for 2014 is underway. You can vote every day here. To search for us, type in our name, Rolling Dog Farm, and Lancaster, NH 03584.

Please note that I cannot help with technical or voting problems. I also do not have an "inside track" to anyone at the Shelter Challenge, and I don't know any more about the contest than anyone else does. So if you find yourself having issues, please consult their FAQ page here and their Rules page, which is a pop-up you can find linked on this page.
Thanks for your votes!
