Dog Blog Post #1043

Yup, raided my sons old toys again.

Discovered that love of Hot Wheels crosses species boundaries, as both boys were mesmerized by the little orange car zipping around the loop - Zachary even more so than Henry, as expected.

I was rather surprised that neither tried to grab, paw at, or otherwise disturb the car/track in any way - perhaps an artifact of it being Photo Shoot time and they know that props are off limits.

FWIW, the track started about 18" above the ground, near vertical against the fridge, then plunged to ground level, through the loop, and ran into the dishwasher on the other side of the kitchen.

I did several trial runs, sans dogs, to discover the best place for the car to be on it's trip down the track for me to trigger the remote in order for the camera to capture the car in the loop.

Mischief Monday

The mischief was all mine, I'm afraid, as I didn't let them keep - or even play with - the cool toy car when the shoot is done.

Hopefully the extra few cookies I tossed their way made up for it.

Cars and trains both seem to hold the attention.

Great photos and such restraint by the boys. Well done.

Sage said...

I love how intent the boys are watching the car go around the track. I doubt Sage would show as much restraint.

Fun photos! Surprised the dogs didn't try to catch the cars. Not sure Rita would sit and watch so calmly!
Happy Monday Mischief!

I remember those days when my son had the cars and the track. I miss those days.
