Bags of Blue

Bags of Blue 3/52
Toby: "Don't forget the baggies!"


Dog Blog Post #2528


"I don't have a spare hand."

"It SMELLS." (Summertime tip: double-bag)

"It decomposes... eventually."

"The city cleans it up, right?"

Umm.. no.

If your dog goes poo you collect the doo - even if no one is watching, even if no one will know.

Our Daily Challenge - Jan 19, 2020: "It is Right"

120 Pictures in 2020 - #113. "Useful"

And it's much easier to collect and carry the treasure in a little blue baggie.

52 Weeks for Dogs: This is something of a repeat of a shot I did earlier this week with Henry (with LEGO men and Cookies) that I punted on for Toby as I knew the Cookies would be too tempting.

The table is one of a set of three nesting end tables, light weight and a bit rickety. I believe they were old when my eventual in-laws gave them to Hubby when he went off to college... 35 years ago.

That said, they are perfect for photoshoots - their dark surface reflecting the black background most agreeably. They are just the right height, are easy to move around, and dog drool wipes right off.

When done being a prop, they are tucked in corner near the sofa and do an admirable job holding magazines.

Anyway, for this shoot, Toby needed to sit very close to the table and hold his head nice and high to be above the bags. The head wasn't an issue, but it took a bit of coaxing to get his body where I needed it.

I did get a shot of him looking down at the bags (per Henry's Cookie original) but I liked this one better.

What a good boy. :)

Go Niners!

Our Daily Challenge - Jan 15, 2020: "Food Chain"

I was originally thinking of a "chain" (line) of Cookies, but they refused to stand up on their own.

So I recruited the LEGO men to help me out.

If it makes you feel better, think of the dog being higher on the Food Chain than the Cookies.

Or the LEGO men, for that matter.

Work with me here!

I'm sure it will come as surprise to no one, but I did NOT try this shot with Toby. :)

He did give me a nice profile shot, however. Baby steps... photo shoots are fun when taken in baby steps!

This was actually harder than it looks, as my "Studio" (aka Kitchen) is only a couple feet wider than what you see here, which means I'm flattened against the cabinets leaning over to the side (don't want to block the reflector) waving a Cookie to get Toby's attention.

He stayed. He looked. And there was great rejoicing!

At least, Henry is probably thinking that.

Henry's patience was well rewarded (and all the LEGO men are safe).

Handsome in Purple

Too much football, so today's shot had to be simplicity itself...

Dog Blog Post #2526


Watching 6+ hours of football has a way of eating up the day - and they weren't even my teams!

52 Weeks for Dogs: Toby posing pretty for me. I *did* get a shot of him wearing the purple hat and Toby's head was up and his neck "normal" - but the shot above was just to sweet to pass up.
