Dog and Deco.
My name is Pickles McConchie. I’m a 15 year old Art Deco and camera loving Terrier from Scotland. I like to travel the country with my bitch and pose in front of art deco factories and industrial buildings from the 1920s, 30s and 40s, as well as other twentieth century architectural gems.

Sometimes this shoulder is a bit sore. Sometimes age starts to creep up on me. Sometimes I make excuses like "Naw, I'm not going walking, it's too cold/hot/steep/wet/dry/tiring." Sometimes I want people to feel sorry for me.
But then, I'm not a dog

Caring about something is about taking the pain and the joy. The pain is hard. Taking the pain, facing it, dealing with it are the ways I think we can show we really care. That we know we care.
