Take No For An Answer

Today was Kate's "One Of Those Days." I don't know what it is about her, but if anyone is getting pestered at the dog park, it's her. Invisible Kick Me sign, perhaps.

I don't know what's funnier in these pics... Kate trying to be bitchy or Bella's complete lack of concern for anything but the ball.

It started out with Snowflake. Not the dogs name, but that's what I call her. I think Kate is inherently suspicious of dogs that are that clean.

Note the bottom half of Kate's gaping maw and Bella trying to find the ball in the sea of legs. Way to help your sister out, Bell.

We had an epidemic of annoying puppies

Schooling in three...two...
Is he still there? Oh My God, are you for real?When she has been sufficiently annoyed, she spends her time concerned only about what's behind her

Don't make me...Have To Drop This Ball...


Then we got lucky. It stated raining. Everyone left. I got my little wienie dog back.

Arses And Elbows!

Anyone care to come throw for me?
'Cause, you know, when it's 80° and you just feel like sitting in the grass enjoying the day you really only end up with...I have no clue what's going on in the leg department here. Even looking it full clue. She did come home with all 4, so that's good.

Well, two faces, because they make me laugh

It's All About The Kibble

I was talking with a fellow amateur photog at work about flashes and shooting indoors. I don't shoot inside much, probably because I don't have a flash! So, I decide to spend some time messing with ISO settings and see what happened. What happened was the realization that my dogs are completely selfish and unhelpful jerks.

Look at these faces!

One would think with all the time, effort and money I spend on/with them that they could peel five minutes off their lives and help me learn a little, yeah?

Oh, no. Complete. Misery.

If this is not an "eff you and your camera" look I don't know what one is.

That is, until I bust out the food.

Say what?!

We try bossy first

Crap! Not working.

Um, um, go for the trick du jour

Yes, that one always works! Noms go here!Or, one could just do it the old-fashioned way....look cute while begging.

Pet Peeve Thursday

Super, super pet peeve of mine ---> Merle and ticking are not the same thing!

If you are "into" or a rescuer of Border Collies, Australian Shepherds or Australian Cattle Dogs you should know better and shame on you for getting it wrong so often!!

Lets look at the difference, shall we?

Merle dogs

Ticked dogs And of course, Miss Super Tick herself...
