Oh, Henry!

Oh, Henry!
Oh, Henry!

Dog Blog Post #669: I'd love to say that I have Henry trained to stick his tongue out on cue, but alas, not surprisingly, that wouldn't be true.

Nope, the Precious Puppy is fond of grazing on the "lawn" (practically a meadow at this point) and often gets a piece stuck on his tongue or in his teeth. This prompts a good deal of licking, not unlike that old Got Milk commercial with the dog and the peanut butter.

Anyway, this resulted in an otherwise random shot being perfect for...

Our Daily Challenge - Apr 25, 2012 - "Expression"

... and acceptable for...

Daily Dog Challenge 177. Natural Elements - Take a picture of your dog with or in some kind of natural element today!

... as the Backyard is clearly the natural habitat of the Suburban dog.

Of course, even "professional" models have the occasional bad pictures..

Not exactly the "expression" I was looking for

Well, except for Mr. Zachary, of course.

Suburban Dog

While it didn't meet the challenges, my favorite shot of the day was actually the one below...

Suburban Dog

... which I had some fun with in Aperture, pushing sliders around:

Artistic Fetch?

Editor's Note: Actually, I don't brush/comb the boys before pictures. Their fur just looks that way. Zachary is always Mr. Impeccable, with perfectly straight fur that seems to be made from teflon as everything falls right out of it. 

Contrast that with Henry, who seems to have perennial Bed Head except for his ruff, which is thick and nearly straight. At the moment, the fur on the ridge of his back is all standing up and curled toward his head. I have no idea why. That's just Henry for you!
