Cookie Farmers?

So THIS is where Dog Cookies come from.

Who knew?!

Daily Dog Challenge 1944. "And The Winner Is..."

Clearly, if the boys are able to grow Giant Dog Cookies from a bowl of Kibble, they are winners. :)

Umm... no. This wasn't really what I had in mind when I got up this morning.

But after spending a good portion of the afternoon sewing the twin of a prior prop (two dogs = two identical props) I decided to take advantage of the machine being out to try my hand at a quick pair of "farmer's overalls" with remnants I had on hand.

Not bad for a few minutes work, but not great, either.

The strap is just safety pined in place, so I'll probably pick up some overall hardware at the fabric store and see if I can improve on it.

Or I could pick up some real denim and just start over.

Oddly enough, denim is almost never found in my local fabric store's remnant rack. Either it's really popular as a remnant and snatched up as soon as it's put out there, or people tend to buy even yardage of the stuff and so there is rarely a partial yard left at the end of the bolt.


... was Day Spa Day.

Play Time

Playing Tug with Henry

Tug... Tug... Tug!

Dog Blog Post #2375

Henry LOVES playing tug.

Not Tug-of-War, as that would imply winners and losers.

No, Henry just wants to perform the act of tugging.

And he kinda needs you to help, as Zachary has Zero interest in the game.

Keep away, maybe, but definitely not tug.

Our first golden, Beau, also loved tug and I have no doubt that he and Henry would have had a blast playing together.

Daily Dog Challenge 1942. "The Things We Do For Love"

Don't get me wrong, I love seeing how happy playing tug makes the pup.

I just try really hard to NOT think about what his claws are doing to the hardwood floor.

Furry Bellies!

I believe that's Zachary on the right

Furry Abstract
Uh... no, I haven't the slightest idea who is where

Do I worry about their teeth?

No, they have no interest in grabbing my hand, and even if they did, by mistake, they don't close their jaws when playing like this so it wouldn't matter.

Their feet? Now that's a different story. They are more than happy to use my legs as something to push off from, and they push hard!

These are obviously all iPhone shots.

While my new 35mm lens has made my Nikon my go-to camera for happy-snappies these days, it is too cumbersome/heavy to hold one-handed for shots like these.

Colorful Zachary

Dog Blog Post #2374

Umm... yeah.

Hopefully, this picture speaks for itself, because I haven't a clue what else I can say.

Photography Assignment

Our Daily Challenge - Feb 23, 2017 - "Colorful"

Daily Dog Challenge 1941. "Vivid"

It's been a while since I've picked up my knitting needles.

So many hobbies, so little time.

And yes, both items were made specifically for the boys, specifically for photo shoots.

The collar is a basket weave pattern, which I find very relaxing to do.

The stocking cap was rather ad-hoc, but it makes me laugh.

100x - 21 : Colorful Dog

Colorful Zachary demanding a raise

Henry decided he didn't like today's shoot, and threw in the towel before I managed to get anything worth uploading.

Occasionally he does that, for reasons known only to Henry.

I never press the issue since he's usually such a good sport.

Tomorrow is another day.
