Fishing for Cookies

Henry: "Now THAT's a bowl of water!"

Fishing for Cookies
Henry: (slurp gulp slurp gulp)

Fishing for Cookies
Henry: "Ahh…."

Dog Blog Post #1406

I wish I could say that Henry is normally a neat drinker, but I can't.

The boy looks like a Baleen Whale draining its pouch every time he leaves a water bowl.

It's as if he takes in one more mouthful of water than he needs and then lets it all drain out as he walks away from the bowl.

Daily Dog Challenge 915. "It's In The Details"

While the shoot was staged (I was tossing Cookies in the bowl) the fact he is a drinking slob isn't, and I really liked that I captured that part of the Real Henry.

Alas, Henry went first (as he always does) for the shoot, and in hindsight I wish I had set the camera up a bit differently. Same for the timing of the shots.

I applied what I'd learned to Zachary's shoot (below) but the boy isn't nearly as big as slob as Henry is.

See "timing" comment above if you think the shots show otherwise. :)

I might have to repeat this shoot some time, as the boys enjoyed it and there is definitely room for improvement.

Mr. Neatness…

Zachary: "Neatly… neatly…"

I love how you can see his whiskers pulled forward to "find" the Cookie.

Zachary: "Delicately… delicately…"

Uh, Zachary?

The point of the shoot is to see you guys making a mess in the water.

Zachary: "Like..."

Zachary: "This?"

In Zachary's defense, he actually is a pretty neat drinker - when I'm not dropping Cookies in the water bowl, that is.
