Missed Shots Monday

Wroo, evfurry body! Today, The Girl thought it would be funny to show you some of the pictures she took of me that were complete misses. I think that it just shows how much she needs to practice with the Silver Clicky Box*, but...

Anyway, I am a furry FAST dog! Girlie often tries to take a picture of me, but when she clicks that button and the picture shows up, she often finds that the picture looks like this:

Or this:

Or even this:

Sometimes, she aims the Silver Clicky Box ahead of where I am running, so that she can try to get me in the frame. Then, she sometimes gets a picture that looks like this:

Girlie is claiming that this is a Missed Shot like the others, but it is not. You can clearly see that I am not even moving. She can't blame the fact that she chopped off my head on me running too fast. But sometimes the one with the fingers gets the final say, she says. No one is fooled, Girlie.

Ha ha ha! Girlie, you included this one in the Missed Shots, but I'm there! Brown Dog Stealth, engage!

And yet again, The Girl is insisting on putting this photo in with the so-called Missed Shots. Again, you can tell that I am just standing there. No excuse for this one, Girlie!

In this one, I admittedly outran the Silver Clicky Box:

And in this one, too:

This is another one where I am clearly not moving. Just look closely at my hind haunch. All of these ones that chop up my handsomeness, they're not even action shots!

Another photo where half of me is cut off, that can only be blamed on Girlie needing a reality check.

But this one, I can honestly admit that I was in this corner, barking at the birdies, when she started to take the picture. But then I had to chase a birdie that flew away, and the Silver Clicky Box was TOO SLOW!

I told The Girl that this post didn't really count toward a Picture-A-Day of me, since there were no pictures of me in it. She tried to say that those chopped up ones count, but I told her, "Seriously, Girlie!" And she agreed to put in a picture that includes my head, since I'm sure that my furends come by to see my face and not my hind-half.

I am not amused that she chose this picture as the one with my face, even though it pretty much sums up my opinion of this entire post. And notice, this picture is chopped off, too! Wroooo!

*The Silver Clicky Box is not to be confused with the Clicker. The Clicker is much better than the Silver Clicky Box, because the Clicker always means I get a treat. Not so with the Silver Clicky Box!

As Stormy of the A04 teaches, it is not our job to make picture taking easy. Quite the opposite. The humans have to EARN it.

Kess And Her Mama said...

I think that the Girl needs some serious photography 101 lessons! Then again, you'll probably still outwit and "out-fast" her!

hehe!! Great job Dannon!!!! Mom gets frustrated when the camera doesn't click as fast as me, too. I think there are a lot more missed pictures of you than there are of me though.
