The following photos are from the 1956 book, The Iceland Dog 874 - 1956 written by Sir Mark Watson and published in 1956 in Nicasio, California where Sir Watson lived and bred his dogs under the kennel name Wensum before going back to Great Britain. The print is a little faded and hard to read in spots. He used as many old sources as possible for his copies of articles and mentions of Iceland Dogs aka Icelandic Sheepdogs. I was surprised by how many of the dogs had shorter hair (fur). The last few photos are of Sir Watson's dogs.

Some people travel to the east coast to see fall colors. That's just fine with me; it keeps them away from here. I love the smoky-ness of our colors here, real autumnal, in my opinion. Perhaps I love autumn and the colors as much as I do because the colors are short lived and special. Here are some recent photos from my neighborhood.
(I can't resist including some of my dogs, my loving, non-judgmental dogs.)
