Happy Easter

Happy Easter

Dog Blog Post #650: If ever a shot of mine begged for a caption, it would be the one above!

No surprise on today's topics. From Daily Dog Challenge we had...

160. Easter


Our Daily Challenge - April 8, 2012 - "Hidden"


112 Pictures in 2012 - "11. Headwear"

The boys seemed to enjoy today's shoot even more than usual, although I can't say for sure exactly why.

Perhaps the cookies flowed a bit easier, or they got a kick out seeing each other in bunny ears - hard to say.

I know I got a kick out of the bunny ears!

For the shot up top: Yes, Zachary knows how to Bow, although I usually cue it from in front if him, which wasn't going to work with this setup.

But a few cookies under the table and a supportive hand under his waist the first time to show him what I wanted, and he obliged me with all the Bow shots I needed. (No, I didn't crop myself out of the shot, he was bowing on his own, but the black fabric didn't go quite far enough to the left - see the shot further down.)

Don't worry - there was the obligatory bit of mischief...

Happy Easter
Would YOU trust those smiles?

Happy Easter
Ok... what you are two plotting?

What do you mean you can't find your motivation??? It's right under the table!
I left the shot above cropped large since (a) Zachary was a big far to the left to make a good crop and (b) folks occasionally ask what my setup is and this shows it.

The stretchy black velvet is butterfly clipped over a pair of butterfly-clipped-together cardboard tri-fold backboards, which are raised about a foot off the ground and clipped to the ex-pen.

Hey Henry, Hey Zachary, Jet here.
Thank heaven your Mom gives lots of cookies... you deserve it for the ears thing! Of course Mom has a different opinion. She thinks you guys look adorable and that your Mom continues to impress with her endless creativity and spot on photography!

OMG! Great pictures! I think the first ones caption is "I think I've got it! Just keep looking like there's nothing wrong!" LOL!

I love the set up and all the shots are adorable! I love the tongue sticking out in the last one. I wonder if the boys were plotting rabbit stew.
