Tower of Cookies

8... 9... 10.

Good.

Ten Cookies all stacked up and ready to go.

Now wait just one more second while I get the shot...

Waiting
(waiting)


Almost done.


Tower of Cookies
(waiting... and staring)


Steady... steady...

Tower of Cookies

The boys ogling the Cookie Tower On The Corner of the table just Waiting to be devoured.

Or is it the boys waiting to devour the Cookies?

Our Daily Challenge - Feb 5, 2016 - "On The Corner"

Daily Dog Challenge 1561. "Waiting"

I'm somewhat surprised I haven't tried this setup before.

Having the small square table turned corner toward the camera allows me to get the boys quite close to the Cookies but still have everything get enough light and be visible.

This is also unusual in that Zachary is on the right. I usually have him on the left so his lighter muzzle gets a bit less flash, but after getting my Cookie Tower stacked I realized my Models were on the wrong sides.

Afraid that rearranging the Bulls in the China Shop* would send the tower plunging to the floor, I left them where they stood.

Zachary: "Is she done rambling on?"
Henry: (sigh)


* Editor's Note: The Myth Busters piece debunking "The Bulls In The China Shop" is one of my favorites: www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nk_zpMory-0

Not the best quality video, but it has no commercials. :)

Superbowl Sunday

And thus we pull the curtain on the 2015 Football season...

Unimpressed
Zachary: "Done?"


Not yet.


Unimpressed
Zachary: "Now?"


No sweetie... soon.


Unimpressed
Zachary: (sigh)



Unimpressed
Zachary & Henry: "Zzzzzzz"

The boys weren't nearly as impressed by the game as I was, although I didn't think the commercials were quite up to past standards.

Daily Dog Challenge 1559. "Pieces"

Yet another set of happy-snappy iPhone shots, with a fun layering effect (below) applied in Photoshop Elements.

Going To Pieces over the end of Football



Football season is now officially over, and with Baseball not yet on the horizon, I have now entered the Sport Drought Season.

Exhausted

Today, we start at the end...

Exhausted
Zachary's Frog Position



Dog Blog Post #2049



Today is Day Spa Day, and after spending the afternoon being primped and pampered they were clearly too exhausted to pose.

So I took a few happy-snappy iPhone shots, played around in Lightroom for a few minutes, then called it a night.

This is Zachary's "Frog" position, lying flat on his tummy with this rear legs and tail splayed straight out behind.

It looks rather uncomfortable to me... for a boy... with a "full toolbox" (groomer's euphemism)... but it seems to work for him.

The Rest...


... of Zachary, relocated and looking much more comfortable.

Exhausted
Zachary: "Zzzzzz"


Exhausted
Henry, under the table, thinking: "Please don't make me move."
