In Which We Are Very Busy and Now Very Nekkid

We had a busy week.  We finally got our interwebs back (which was a good thing, as Mom was getting a little twitchy), and Mom spent a ton of time taking photos of us for her pet photography class (so she can learn to take better photos of us, of course!).

For Mom's last class assignment, she though we should all go to the park so she could get some action shots.  We were more than happy to comply!

Seriously, any class assignment that involves us going to the park is a totally awesome assignment!  Mom submitted her photos (these were her submissions, if you are curious - they all had to be in natural light, one inside, one outside and one of the location of her choice).

Her next assignment has to do with 'perspective' - with all that entails.  She has to get a head shot, a 3/4 body shot and a full body shot.  She's contemplating the photos she wants, so we have again been recruited.  Luckily, Mom has a BIG bag of liver treats!

Somewhere in all of this, Mom decided we were a wee bit shaggy and that we needed haircuts.  Something to do with us going on a walkie when it was 34F, precipitating lightly and we were panting from being hot...

So, haircuts we received....

This would be my, "Dad, help me!  Please!" look.  It didn't work.
But when it was all over (there were more liver treats involved, BTW), we were nekkid - and much cooler.

And much more aerodynamical!

I'm not sure if being less aerodynamical would have helped Abby in this case...

However, the haircuts seems to help with the effectiveness of the Doodle Launcher.

And we have a grand time with tennis ball action.  Mom finds this next photo very amusing - something about how she hears the theme from 'The Good, The Bad and The Ugly' every time she sees it.  Needless to say, we have No Idea What She Is Talking About.  All I know is that much bitey-face ensued shortly after this photo was taken...

Since the haircuts, we have continued to help Mom with her 'perspective' photos.

"These are not the droids you are looking for.  And you want to give me your ham sandwich."

Mom loves this angle.  And I love the liver treats!

Three-quarters of  a dog!
Apparently this is a perspective, too.  I call it a doofus!

Have a great week!
