Dogs teach us so much about living in the now. I wanted to capture the joy on this dogs face as he enjoyed a blissful moment at the beach, feeling the warm winter sun on his face, reminding us of the importance of such things. This is Sadiq. He was rescued off the streets of Qatar by Rescue Salukis Middle East and Dogs in Doha. He now lives in Alabama where he is being fostered, and I believe is available for adoption.
