best good dog

Y'all I just snuck in a picture of my favorite pooch, Lexington, to Garden & Gun's 2014 Good Dog Contest. It ends today but, as she so humbly stated this afternoon, a come-from-behind victory would make it that much sweeter (a girl can dream, okay?). I snapped this photo last week when we were fishing for puppy drum just north of Avon on Hatteras Island with her handsome daddy. By "we were fishing," I obviously mean Lexington was frolicking in the water scaring away every single menhaden while I was struggling to keep her dry and photogenic. We chose this photo, out of the thousands, because we're suckers for a good ol' Cape Hatteras sunset.
