Wordless Wednesday: Take it easy

Raising a Super Dog

With apologies to The Eagles.

Unless this gets a snort laugh from Glenn Frey. Then I stand by it.

Wordless Wednesday: Put treat here

Let’s save some time, says Holly. Just put the treats … here.

And this is how you train the trainer, people.  Another weekly photo shoot and a pocket full of dog cookies.  Holly is learning to respond to Cookie! as well as she does her name.

We’ll be weaning her from this expectation now. I mean, for goodness sake, the pup knows how to Sit and Stay.

And to look at the camera on cue. It’s just that the cue is a dog cookie.

Holly can certainly work it for the camera with the proper motivation. Here she is in a Nice Sit/Stay, all alert with ears perked.

Because I’m making wolf howl-y noises to keep her attention. You just gotta go with what works in this gig.

By the way, check out last week’s photo to see our nearly leaf free backyard. Thanks to the sycamore, with leaves as large as dinner plates, we get to witness the very act of season falling upon us.

Wordless Wednesday: Fog alert

How cool is that, I think as I check the morning weather by way of the west facing kitchen window.

A foggy dewscape this morning.

I wipe the sleep boogers from Holly’s eyes and walk her outside with an edgy and mood laden photo in mind.

And instead get a rather underexposed shot for my troubles.

Gloomy’s a mood, right?

But no matter. We’ll wait things out for this week’s birthday photo.

And a few hours later, I wipe the sleep boogers from Holly’s eyes for the second time today as she awakens from her afternoon nap and we once again head outside to the awaiting blackboard.

And we find that the Golden Hour offers up a backdrop that’s a bit more uplifting for our sunny girl’s personality.

Twenty eight weeks old now.

Wordless Wednesday: Clean slate

Welp, back to repurposing the buckeye stump as our weekly birthday photo prop. I had to have The Husband take the chain saw to it to give us a clean slate, so to speak.  Funny thing that the chalkboard markers don’t wash off the tree stump. Didn’t say anything about that on the package.

And there’s some sort of post-apocalyptic vibe about this photo. Do you feel it too?

Holly’s ruffled fur and the rustic, damaged backdrop beg for a back story. Her intensely focused eyes have that hungry I could eat that look.  True that, as there be a dog cookie suspended nearby to hold her attention, as witnessed by the reflection in her deep brown orbs.

Speaking of, did you know that, if left to their own resources, a dog would eat sawdust?

It’s my daily fiber, says Micron.

Spit it out, says I.

Wordless Wednesday: Holly’s stumped

Raising a Super Dog

Well, you know what they say around here.

When life hands you a lemon, you add a lime or two and make yourself a nice, chilled Sangria.

And then you sit on the patio and make a toast to the memory of your favorite Buckeye tree.

[sniffle] I loved that stupid tree.

We knew the buckeye was a goner after the trunk split from windstorm damage back in July.

And The Husband took the chainsaw to the rest of it. Right down to the nub.

Anyhoo, nothing to do about it but make a photo op outa the thing.

In lieu of the blackboard this week, we gotcha Holly stumping her twenty six week birthday announcement.

Wordless Wednesday: Temptations

Holly poses for her weekly shot at the scene of Micron’s misadventures.

She is doing a fine job of turning her head away from the delights found in one’s patio herb garden. No noshing upon the cherry tomatoes or jalapeno peppers.

Sure, it helps that Micron ate them all already.

Still, some credit is due here. She didn’t even look for anything to roll around in her mouth.

Growing up, y’all.

Wordless Wednesday: A majestic air

 

So serious, this Holly puppy, with a touch of a majestic air about her like an aura.

Naw, just kidding, y’all.

This is Holly.

Not a prob. I was done taking photos anyway. Silly girl.
