Hot Dog

Dog Blog Post #395: The Daily Shoot certainly produced a weather appropriate assignment today - at least for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere...

Make a photograph conveying the feeling or thought of being hot.

... and while it wasn't as hot as it was a few weeks ago, it certainly was hot enough to get one Golden, after retrieving an appropriate amount of Lacrosse Balls, to start panting.

Any guesses as to what the "bait" was in the picture above and below: cookies or ball?

Hot Dog

(No, one isn't a crop of the other, although you'd be hard pressed to know that to look at them.)

Did some work on poses with the boys, and was so tickled at how they came out that I'm holding them for Wordless Wednesday (i.e tomorrow.) :)

And here we go with the last push of (mostly) non-dog Scavenger Challenge pictures. We have...

... things that go together (cup and saucer, shoes and socks...)

Golden and Ball
Golden and Ball

Yes, Henry does, in fact, retrieve. It's just that Zachary's faster (and/or more motivated) and thus is usually the one with the prize. There are exceptions, however, usually when the ball takes an unexpected bounce. Zachary is such a gentlemen, that he just stands there and looks pathetic until Henry drops it where I can reach it (a work in progress.)

Golden and Ball

... Splat!

Our FLOWERING Plum gifts us with copious amounts of marble-sized fruit.

... and the promised water droplet shot (for "something out of its normal context")

Catching Droplets

... not that I have the slightest idea where this inch-long cupid would be in context! Yes, this was another Mist Bottle shot, and royal pain, too, as Master Cupid kept sliding off his rather unstable flower.

That leaves me with just one more shot - a still life with 3 fruits/veggies, flowers, and a glass vase/bowl - and I'll be done!

I vow next month I'm finishing that darned challenge!

I love your hot photos! I had a feeling you'd be doing the same thing I was with the tongue. After all these weeks of trying to get the tongue to stay in the mouth, I think it was a shock that I wanted her to let it hang out!

Show equality? Ugh! It's too early in the morning for me to even come up with an idea!

Great shots. The tongue about expresses our dog reactions.

Great shots, I hope to make time to do that challenge one day!

I'm going to guess cookie:)

I love the little cupid. I was wondering how on earth you got him positioned there!

You can make even a splattered plum look good:)

In the top shot, I liked how the tongue was pink with a black spot and the nose was black with a pinkish spot. I thought that made a nice visual contrast.

The water drop shot is spectacular. And, I don't think you could have shown hot in a better way.
