"The best-laid plans of mice and men / Often go awry"

Which was originally: "The best laid schemes o' mice an' men / Gang aft agley" by Robert Burns from "To a Mouse, on Turning Her Up in Her Nest with the Plough" 1785.

Daily Dog Challenge "498. Tight Crop"

Our Daily Challenge - March 12, 2013 - "Up"

Editor's Note

I didn't set out to use a Bitey-Face shot. And while I freely admit the first part of the day was spent mulling over a lot of really bad ideas, the perfect solution did eventually come to me.

Or, at least it seemed perfect in my head.

Alas, reality was a bit different.

In my defense, I got started rather late, even by my standards, and the shoot involved something neither boy had done before (hint: not a good thing to try at 10pm.)

And then Hubby just had to have that glass of milk, from the fridge, to whose door was clamped the reflector, which was sitting right behind Henry's rump.


Oh well, the pictures weren't turning out quite as I had planned anyway.

Good thing I'd snapped a few "insurance" Bitey-Face shots first, specifically looking for paws up in the air.

My favorite shot of the day was of Henry, below. It cracks me up every time I look at it...

I surrender!
