Our Daily Challenge - Nov 21, 2012 - "Stripes"

My Pick-of-the-Day was the second picture, as I loved the inquisitive look Henry was giving the Zebra.

The fact the Zebra had a cookie tucked between his front hooves might have had something to do with that. :)

Empathy


Editor's Note: Poor Zachary - he's been on a diet of late* making him seemingly perpetually hungry, which can be a bit of a problem when photography time rolls around.

He's now so distracted by the knowledge that he's going to get a cookie, that it's hard for him to do what he needs to do to earn it.

In the case of the picture at the very top of the post, all he had to do was hold still and stare at the cookie that was sitting on Zebra's back.

Obviously, he failed.

Miserably.

Poor Zachary.

Of course, I feel sorry for the poor guy, and it's not really his fault, so I have been trying to keep his shoots shorter and what he has to do to earn his cookies easier.

This probably makes him happier, especially since he's still getting his pre-diet number of cookies for the shoot (a deal is a deal!) but it doesn't make for nearly as good a selection of Zachary shots to choose from!

* He packs on the pounds every single fall, seemingly in a blink of an eye, and ends up on weight control dog food and extra exercise (both of which he thankfully enjoys) until he slims back down again.

The one you chose is definitely my favorite of the group, but I love all the shots! Poor Zachary! I feel his pain!
