First (and last) #selfportrait in a looooong time. Many of my favourite things are in this picture.... My #sleeve by @danabrunson , my new rescue pup @ruthbowieginsburg , my #ohiouniversity tee from @simonstamper , and my handcrafted #african bean bag. My not so favourite things? Well, let sleeping dogs lie... #tattoos #pitbulls #sciencenerd

This little #pitbull has had a rough start to life. The #notoriousRBG just came home from a two day stay at #doggie hospital. Poor thing had a parasitic infection. #Ruthie has already survived parvo but keeps on keepin' on. Isn't she a bunch of #adorable?#dogsofinstagram #pitbullpuppy #rescue #rescuedogs #deafdogs #ruthiethepitbull

The #NotoriousRBG is queen of the couch. #DYK that #deafdogs are often white or have white heads?
"The lack of pigment on the head causes the pigment cells in the inner ear to fail to develop, or they may be lacking entirely," Dr Strain of WebMD says. "The lack of pigment cells causes the death of the nerve cells that need to develop for hearing to occur."

Meet Ruth Bowie Ginsburg - named for a combination of the #NotoriousRBG and #Bowie she's a champion farter and sleeper, and is fast becoming a destroyer of things, ALL things. She's #deaf but other than that is a typical naughty #puppy just trying to learn #ASL

#Experimentation time! This is a test shot for something I have been planning for a while....still not sure how it will work out. Hopefully you can see three #suns in the picture, each shot taken about 10 min part during #sunset #cloudporn time. #Photography peeps I used a 4-stop #NDX filter but just blended the images on my iPad. Comments or suggestions? #photographingspace #igerssouthafrica #igersportelizabeth #easterncape #nikon @gengalicious @astroshake @naszoea @mizabbyharris ?

Such a beautiful but small thing with so much #joy packed in for me. I think this is a #crab #larva and the pic does not do the twinkly blue stars on its body justice. So #tiny. So perfectly #adapted. Does anyone know the proper name for this little one? Besides "awwww"? #underwater #igersportelizabeth #tidepool #macro #oceans #marinescience @naszoea @paula.pattrick
