The Joy of...

Joy of Cooking

Dog Blog Post #472: ... Cooking.

That was the title, at least. That was not, however, the prompt, as I had already used "The Joy of..." up a few days ago. No, today was...

Our Daily Challenge - Oct 4, 2001 - "Kitchen related item/idea"

Scavenge Challenge October 2011 - "3. Portray a book title in a photograph."

111 pictures for 2011 - "81. household appliance"

Yup - a threefer! Gotta love that. This is really nothing more than some time spent setting things up, and then a good "sit", "stay", and "leave it!" cue with a few cookies dropped in the bottom of the yellow bowl.

I'm in the kitchen again, with the cardboard trifold backboard draped in 2 yards of cheap white fabric (which doesn't show wrinkles!)

I use two small butterfly clips to clip the fabric to the top of the back backboard, then open the drawers of the kitchen cabinets the board is leaning against, and close them on the ends of the fabric, thus holding the fabric covered backboard upright.

Stop back by tomorrow (Wordless Wednesday) to see my first ever attempt using My Memories Suite 2 scrapbooking software and the picture above. :)

Let's see, how about a twofer:


That would be...

Scavenge Challenge October 2011 - "20) Something's fishy! Shoot a subject related to fish or fishing."

If you haven't tried one of these before, and you have a dog with a good "Drop" cue, then you should really give it a go. They boys (yes, plural) played for 5-10 minutes in a 12 foot x 12 foot area, with my son at the other end of the pole.

All concerned had a really great time, but that's because neither dog plays to win, they both will drop on cue, and they don't mind if the other has the toy. Clearly, this could spell trouble if your dog(s) aren't so inclined.

I'd also be careful if your dog(s) are the size of mine. A 10lb dog might leave claw marks over your foot, but an 80lb dog could take you out at the knees if you both aren't paying attention!

Finally, this weeks Weekly Worksheet. I haven't been uploading every week, as it is, admittedly, a bit dull to just watch the stars march across the sheet. Well, the top half of the sheet. I clearly need to give some thought to the bottom half!

I've got a flirt pole but I don't dare try it with Beryl in case she breaks a leg! So Frankie misses out too. And he doesn't have a 'drop' or 'out' so it's a bit of a mission playing with him! Shame as it's great exercise:)

Aww, so you weren't really making peanut butter cookies for the boys! They look like they're willing you to do it:)

I love that first shot! What a great idea, and the threefur is awesome. I really need to get on the ball when I get home to have a chance of keeping up with you! I've had a great time taking pictures on vacation, but it's not the same.

I still think that second shot looks like dog ballet, too! I adore it!

Looks like a great week! Can't wait to see the scrapbook page.

We have been playing lots and lots of fetch and tug at our house. Mommy does not really have a free hand to take photos.
