Dog Blog Post #666: Hmm.... rather ominous post number. But we press on...

Today has got to be the easiest Daily Dog Challenge yet -

174. Ready To Go - Dogs show excitement differently, and about different things. Show us how your dog reacts to whatever excites them - walk, toy, car ride...

So I got out the camera, added the flash, then laid in wait for hubby to appear and grab the leashes from the leash basket. Right on cue, hubby entered the room, walked toward the bookcase (containing said basket (containing said leashes)) and then asked what has got to be the stupid question a dog owner asks their dog...

Hubby: "Who wants to go for a walk?"

Yeah - we all say it, and I'm as guilty as my better half, if not more so, but who are we kidding? Do we really think either one of the boys is suddenly going to lay down and say, "Not me."?

Do we really think they are going to suddenly lay down and say, "Not me."?


But I digress.

There I was, laying in wait, when hubby headed toward the bookcases. There was a flurry of furry, as the boys spun, twirled, and bounced across the floor...

.... bouncing right out the top of the picture.



Zoom out.

Hubby was still standing there, dangling and jangling the leashes.

It sounded like the Budweiser Clydesdales were trotting through the family room.

Zachary was still spinning.

Henry was still bouncing.

Rats - I was still cutting his head off.

Zoom out.





... (sigh)

Who would have thought that Henry could jump that high?


In other news...

I wonder if the boys realize that Kitty has been studying enemy tactics?

Cat Chasing for Dummies
Definitely mischief in the making
Editor's Note: No worries Tucker (BIGDAWG AND FREEWAY) if the boys knew anything about Cat Chasing, Zachary wouldn't have needed to buy a book!

I've had my share of cut off action shots, too! I'm giggling like mad about asking the question. Because yes, I have been there, too! I still say it was fun to see that side of the boys because usually they just seem so perfect. :)

Hi Y'all,

Is barking going on along with the jumping? My Human makes me sit and waits for me to stop barking before the collar goes on me. :( No fun!

Snowin' and blowin' here so I thought I'd just hop by to say "hi" and see how y'all are doing.

Hope y'all had a great weekend and have a fantastic week!

Y'all come by now,
Hawk aka BrownDog
