Zachary - Dog of Action

YARP - Yet Another Retrieving Picture

Dog Blog Post #680: Honestly. I'm not the one picking the challenges! But what was I supposed to do with...

Daily Dog Challenge 187. Where The Action Happens - Take a photo today that illustrates the idea of action!"

I was rather conflicted between the shot above and the shot below...


... which is crisper, but more mundane in "pose".

We also have...

X Marks the Spot

... a no-brainer for...

Our Daily Challenge - May 5, 2012 - "X Marks the Spot"

112 Pictures in 2012 - "#37. Feet"

100 Pictures in 2012 - "#38. Feet"

And while I did actually pose them for this one, they will frequently lie down just like this all on their own.

Today I was pulling them away from a rousing game of fetch (hence the pink tongues) and lying down wasn't foremost on their minds.

Well, at least not on Zachary's mind. Henry was more than happy to take a rest-and-cookie break in the shade. :)

And finally (as I struggle to catch up after falling woefully behind) we have:

All Heart

All Heart

The prompt was from Daily Dog Challenge...

186. "Have A Heart" - Take a picture of your dog that features a heart in some way. It can be literal or figurative. Just show us that your dog has heart!"

... which was offered in response to a call for Heart pictures after the tragic death of a two year old little girl named Mikaela. And while I don't personally know the little girl, nor the grandmother requesting heart pictures (except through flickr) my own heart breaks imaging the pain of losing a child.

Heart pictures are being uploaded here: Heart - in memory of Mikaela and I went with the top picture, as the grinning duo seemed more than a bit out of place.

No parent should ever have to bury their child, and my thoughts go out to the family.

I definitely think you made the right call on the action shot and the heart shot! Both of them are just perfect, as is the X! I always love your creative ideas for shots.

And if you need a clapboard, let me know! ;)
