Thanks, Philippe.  There's a good story behind that one, which I think I 
told on the RUG not long ago.  The picture was taken in Joel-Peter Witkin's 
studio just after a lengthy shoot with a model.  The dog on the left 
(Minnie) is mine.  The other one (Brie) belonged to someone else.  Both 
were there to "audition" for a role in the shoot.  Brie got the job, but 
Minnie and I hung out to watch the session and at the end I put both dogs 
on the set and took a couple of pictures with my PanaLeica LC40 
digicam.  One of my friends works for Witkin, which is how I got to be 
there in the first place.
