He’s Still Got It

To cheer us all up on a Monday here is our crazy pooch.

He is a delight, a faithful companion and of course crackers!

And after tearing up and down he likes to drink from the birds water…….

Someone Loves the Snow and a Little Practice

Popping in real quick today to share this series of fun photos in the spirit of my One Little Word®. When I decided to delay going into work because of the surprise snow fall I grabbed the camera and caught a sweet doggie having some fun.

Not the best photos, that’s why I needed to practice taking pictures in the snow (it throws the exposure out) but still fun ones….

Needless to say that pristine and beautiful snow-covered garden is now trashed with his antics!

A standoff in the quest for a photo

buds6

Not looking.

buds5

See, I said I wasn’t looking.

buds4

Nope.

buds

Absolutely not.

buds3

Fine I’ll play ball, just so you’ll let me in the house…..

buds7

Just kidding!

Dog DIY?

dog-diy

Left to his own devices he’ll come up with all sorts of ways to entertain himself. Like helping with a little DIY.

Look he’s found a screwdriver.

Testing out the sturdiness of the handle before em-bark-ing on the task….

dog-diy2

Thinking he better disappear with it before someone ruins his fun.

dog-diy-3

Yep pretty sturdy handle.

dog-diy5

After a spell of chasing him round the garden he gave up his little chew toy and settle for the good old piece of pipe.

dog-diy4

Really that pooch!

Best game ever!

string2

Three little words – give me that – send him into a crazy puppy frenzy of naughtiness. Anything he thinks you want is instantly his most favourite and he won’t give it up without a fight.

string5

See me? I got your string.

string6

Still got it.

string3

This was actually the second day of the string fun and I came prepared with my camera this time. The only difference today was that the green luminous stuff had previously been attached to Gav’s woodworking project but it snapped so instead of leaving us a criss crossed trail of string to re-wind he was running free with it.

string1

Or stopping for extra tease value only to launch himself off down the garden the moment you got too close.

string4

Oh! The fun he had.

string2

Mine. All mine.

string

Unless of course you entice him in for a treat, then it’s like what string?

She’s got that camera pointed at me again….

budmacro3

I am sure if he had any thoughts in his head, apart from walks and food that is, his next one would be to get the camera out of his face! I just can’t resist that little nose.

The shot below didn’t enlist the macro function of the 100mm lens but you can still get pretty close up.

budmacro1

I liked the almost over exposed light in these photos too. Must remember that.

budmacro2

Such cuteness withough even trying.

And finally, this one was using the macro……

Someone has a new chew toy

pooch-and-ropey

You can sneek up on me all ya like, it’s my chew toy.

I can chew it this way,

pooch-and-ropey1

or that way,

pooch-and-ropey2

‘cos it’s mine see……

I can hold it tight in my cute dog pawsies,

pooch-and-ropeymacro

so you can’t get it!

And don’t think I haven’t seen him sneaking down the stairs either!

pooch-and-ropey4

That pooch!

bud-and-the-wool

What do ya mean it’s your wool?

Mine.

bud-and-the-wool2

Mine.

bud-and-the-wool1

Mine.

bud-and-the-wool3

Mine.

bud-and-the-wool4

Apparently it’s his ball of wool……

Cracker dog crazy again, again and again….

buddy-ball1

Oh life is sweet every day for that little dog. Well, unless it’s raining or a firework goes off.

buddy-stickHe finds all kinds of stuff to play with. Like this and this.

But in the garden it usually is a stick or a ball and he is ‘A’ okay with that.

buddy-ball

Especially a ball that may have bounced over from the boys next door…….

Buddy and the ice cube

ice3

What is it then?

Something to eat. Oh yes.

ice5

I could try it this way.

ice2

Or that way.

ice-1

Or lick it.

ice

Yes, he likes an ice cube.
