The Cupboard Was...

Cupboard Door
Zachary: "We're fine Mom - plenty of Cookies."

Good. Henry would not be happy if we ran out.

Why don't you go ahead and close the Cookie Cupboard door.

Zachary: "No problem."

Zachary: "Just have to give it a push…"

Zachary: "… and closed she goes!"

Dog Blog Post #1297

Hopefully the cupboard isn't bare!

I love it when Zachary pulls his ears forward (top picture), probably because he only does it when he's enthused about something, and who doesn't like seeing their dog happy?

Here, he's enthused that I'm about to throw a handful of Cookies on the floor so he can play Cookie Cleanup. :)

He also loves closing cupboard doors, and does so any time I open them to pull out the Cookie jar. He even knows to wait until I have removed the Cookies from said jar and returned the jar to the shelf before pushing the door(s) closed.

Truth in advertising: That isn't really the Cookie Cupboard, which is in the far right corner and is hard to get a picture of, but Zachary dutifully closed it anyway.

Ok, well, THAT didn't work, now did it?

Shows what a different a few feet make.

Zachary's only 2-3 feet forward of where he would normally be sitting (my kitchen) and the flash was moved as well, but the reflection from the cupboard door wrecked havoc on the exposure.

That is: one second to click it, forever to "fix" it.

If only I had your talent - but trying to close the cupboard my prove a little difficult for me! It look like you've mastered the way to get more treats!

Happy New Year - WOOF WOOF!

I love the concept, and I can see where those shiny doors would be heck with the flash. I think the pictures turned out better than you did, though.

And whew! The News, I can totally work with that! lol

That's some talent there! And, I'm so glad you haven't run out of cookies, that would be a disaster!

You are so good at closing doors. I'm so good at opening doors. I opened the door to our caravan,once, while my mom and dad were in the bathroom Then I ran around the campsite until they had finished bathing. Wheew. Licks from Laika.

Such a good helper, Zachary! I think you deserve an extra cookie for that.

Sounds like Zachery is quite the well-behaved dog :) He sure is handsome! My cats will open cupboards too, but then they slip inside and find a nice spot to sleep.

Love all the photos, but I really, really love the last one of Zachary!
