Can't catch me!

Wrooo, everydoggy and kitty! The Girl and I went outside on Monday, for my kind of photoshoot.

(By the way, my good furend, Dozer, asked in comments about my last post if I was getting treats in return for poses. In fact, I was getting some very delicious turkey jerky. I just hate posing, and I hate it more everytime she makes me do it! I figure that if I pout and scowl enough, she'll give up. I think I'm more stubborn than she is, anyway.)

So The Girl decided yesterday that we'd go out and get some "action shots". Which means that she's trying to capture me in all my running glory. And not doing a very good job at it, because she knows next to nothing about taking pictures. But I had a lot of fun, which is really all that matters, right?

Here I am, running away from The Girl. Sorry it's blurry.

Another shot of me running away. Check out my ears flying!

This is a shot of me, when I'm waaaayyyyy outside of the frame. Too slow, Girlie!

And her timing here isn't much better. Can't catch me! I'm the Gingerbread Dog! (Yummmm, I think I would like gingerbread. I wonder if The Girl will make me some.)

At least here she shows some of my way-cool motion a little bit better, even though it's kind of blurry, too.

And here's one last shot of me running away. I notice that it's blurry, too. No gingerbread for The Girl!

The Girl would also like to apologize for the sad state of the yard. I don't really know what she means by that, but she said that there is no better way to realize how the yard really looks than to see it through the photo editor (which she really only uses to crop and rotate).

We do read the comments that come as they come into our email inbox. We just are not managing very well to actually reply to them. We're hoping to get around to read everypuppy and kitty's blog later tonight, or tomorrow night at the latest. I'm not sure how to train The Girl to do this more often. Positive reinforcement is only getting me so far. I wonder if she'd be more trainable if she didn't have opposable thumbs???

Action shots are the best. Well, when you are actually in them. We are amazed at how many of our humans photos just show part of us in a blur exiting the edge.

Mom takes a lot of pictures of the empty ground and my tail, too! It's fun to mess with her. My favorite thing to do is to pretend I'm going to cooperate and then right before the camera clicks, move really fast! It's great fun!


Woof Dannan,

Look at those flying ears. That is such a pawsome shot. You look like you were having so much fun.

Those are great shots! You look like a bunny rabbit from behind (thats a compliment). I never had turkey jerky, just chicken strips, but mom is not buying those any more :(

You think the girl is bad takeing photos John has a hard drive full of dogs backsides,and or I just missed that, type shots.
It was the pawz Christmas photoshoot on Saturday I did not go so John had to fancy me up. But the Mop Lily and Spot went. When I saw the Mop I nearly wet my self laughing.
