Ready for Halloween

Ready for Halloween
"Trick or Treat!"


Dog Blog Post #2508


Photoshoots with a 14 week old puppy (today!) can be very... entertaining.

Toby has two "poses" right now - this one (which you've seen several times before) and the one where he's charging toward the camera.

(sigh)

A work in progress... the pup is definitely a work in progress.

On the bright side, Henry dutifully stared into the pumpkin even though the only thing inside was a pile of rocks to make it harder for Toby to run off with it.

What a good boy!

What I really need is to draft Hubby into guarding the camera for me, although I'm not sure his presence next to the camera would be a deterrent or a lure.

Busy Busy Busy

As I've said before - when you actually something to blog about you probably don't have time to do it.

Here's a few highlights since the last post, or just hop over to:

Modeling for Momma

Puppy vs. Box
New Toy!



Toby is leaving the camera alone (enough) to try for a solo shoot.

Yes, the box entertained him.

Yes, he was about to go down for a nap and so he was a bit slower.

But I still think it counts, don't you?

Don't worry - Henry had a few easy shots to get things rolling (and the camera focused) and got just as many Cookies in the end!

A towel, of course!

Photo Shoots with an 11 week old puppy (10 weeks 6 days) is... interesting.

There is no doubt who is in charge, and it sure the heck isn't me.

The lesson for today is that Henry looks at my face and Toby looks at the food. Hmmmm.

I’d love to say that Toby has a wonderful sit-stay. But seriously, he’s an 11 week old puppy. Rather, Toby knows sitting is heavily rewarded and patience gets you the Cookie (string cheese) faster.

The net result (for my purposes) is pretty much the same. Five to six seconds where I’m not in the picture. Best of all, once I get him where I want him, I can treat him between shots and he’ll stay put.

I’ve also found a good time for him - just before his late afternoon nap - and a good treat (tasty but not TOO tasty).
