Move!

Zachary, willing the Lacrosse Ball to move.

Well, he's certainly frozen in place.

It wouldn't surprise me if Zachary's world really was this black and... orange.

As soon as he sees you heading out back he frantically searches for a ball (we keep at least a half-dozen in the house) and then he drops it at your feet every time you stop moving until you relent and toss it across the yard.

Thankfully, he's an excellent retriever and returns promptly, dropping the ball right at your feet again.

Should the ball roll away, or you want it even closer, you can just point at the ground where you want it and Zachary will try again.

Henry is also an excellent retriever, and I think he's better at figuring out where the ball is going to end up when it ricochets off something, he's just not as obsessed about the whole thing.

Catching Cookies

The boy's got talent


He makes it look so easy.

Zachary rarely misses, and when he does, it's almost always my fault.

Henry actually did pretty well tonight. Alas, the photographer... didn't.

Private Detective Henry


Dog Blog Post #2477



Hard to go wrong with a dog in a Fedora as your model.

Henry always reminds me of the world-weary private detective, while Zachary is the by-the-book cop.

One of Those Days

The Good Life
Mr. Henry


Dog Blog Post #2475


The boys enjoyed a change of routine earlier in the evening and were still a bit too wound up to put their best into their modeling tonight.

Of course, they were not concerned.

Their Modeling Contract stipulates they get full wages even when the effort is, shall we say, substandard.

No worries, tomorrow dawns another challenge (or two) and a fresh opportunity to redeem their good names.

And more Cookies.

Truth in Advertising: Henry was most definitely NOT serious during this shoot, and I was rather surprised to find this image in the set.

Those darn Cookie Bags were as slippery as could be, and both dogs were quite intrigued by them.

In the end, while I liked Zachary's shot better (also uploaded) because it was a more accurate portrayal of the shoot (sigh) I went with this one because you could sort of see what was in the bags.

Daily Dog Challenge 2351. "Rich"

Alas, the "golden" bone Cookies weren't nearly as as obvious in the purple bags as I had hoped, and the golden bags were too small to hold them.

Live and learn.

The Good Life
Zachary: "He he he... ho ho ho... snort!"


Next!

Waiting For Dinner
Henry... waiting


Dog Blog Post #2474


Where's Staff when you need them?

Photography Assignment


Daily Dog Challenge 2346. "Symmetry"

Well, I tried.

Zachary's shot was marginally more symmetrical, but as it was practically identical to a shot I took in late February (oops) you get Henry.

Seriously, if I had tried to duplicate Zachary's earlier shot I couldn't have gotten it any closer.

Besides, who doesn't love a picture of Henry?

Our Daily Challenge - April 5, 2018 - "Reflected Selfie"

I'm the (upside-down) baby-blue strip on the side of the dog bowl.

As I was kneeling on the floor, logic says my right hand is on the floor at the top of the bowl, putting my tilted-head at the bottom. That would have my left arm wrapped around my neck, firing the remote over my shoulder at the camera somewhat behind me.

The fact I seem to be pointing over the wrong shoulder is a bit troubling, but then I'm also upside-down so maybe it all works out in the end.

I'm a bit surprised how small I am, since I was close enough to catch the side of my head in a nearly identical shot.

Henry is focused solely on the two little Cookies on the bottom of the otherwise empty dog bowl.

Since he is absolutely certain he's going to get them (and he did - plus more) he'll sit there motionless for - essentially forever - waiting patiently for the good word to eat them.

Yes, the bowl is huge... and shiny... and as I've mentioned before, it's only used as a prop.

The boys Real Bowls heavy ceramic with rainbow paw prints on the side, since they are easy to keep clean and always stay put.

It looks like Henry is trying to tell me something.

I wonder what it could be?

Cookie Thief


Zachary, where did you get that bag of Cookie Loot from???

Daily Dog Challenge 2340. "Contrast"

Fun with the anti-reflector.

A slider or two may have been pushed in the making of this picture.

Note to self: Next time, make sure the top of the bag is pulled up so it actually looks like a bag. (sigh)

I was thinking of this for 118 Pictures in 2018 - #74. "Strong Contrast", but since it's not that hard of a picture (for the boys) I think I'll let it go for now and see if I can do better later in the year.

Very rare.

Only seen once a year, for which the boys are eternally grateful.

Don't worry guys, the Bunny Ears are going back into their box for another year.

Truth in Advertising: The boys actually don't mind wearing Bunny Ears.

This was the lighting test shot, and I hadn't pulled out the Cookies yet.

Henry isn't about to put forth posing effort until he's sure I'm ready (read: have Cookies.)
