In Which We are Athletes AND Super-Models

Who says Doodles can't do it all?  We had a busy week, with tennis ball action, posing for Mom's 'portrait' photography, and walkies in all sorts of weather.

Needless to say, there was much leaping...

Abby tested out the Doodle Launcher...

She's from the Ministry of Silly Walks, of course!

I think the Doodle Launcher needs a little re-calibration here!
Ah-ha!  Mom seems to have fixed it again!
In addition to the Doodle Launcher, there was more General Leaping.



Yep, I've got Jaws of Doom!
There were also Many Tennis Ball Zoomies!

In addition to our athletic endeavors, we placated Mom with Much Posing.

I pose well with tennis balls!

My goofy sister!

Mom calls this my 'crouching Anubis' pose - something about resembling a statue found in Tutankhamen's tomb:

It has rained pretty much all weekend, which didn't stop us going on walkies.  Check out Mom's Highly Stylish Inclement Weather Gear (we didn't have any choice - it's not our fault our Mom dresses us funny)....

Mom is all about 'being visible' when walking in the rain.  We received many treats giving permission to allow this photo to be posted on the interwebs.
In spite of our highly stylish coats, we got a tad damp.

Since Mom didn't want to get her camera all wet, she used the storms to take 'portrait' photos of us.

Abby is a LONG dog!

Treat?!?  Yes, I'll have several, please!

Abby sucking up to Mom for treats.  For the record, it works.
It was a tiring week!

Have a great week!

Action Dogs!

We've had another grand week of action and adventure!  Well, maybe not so much adventure, but plenty of action of the tennis ball variety.  And we had plenty of opportunities to be Super Dogs (minus the capes)!

Abby might have needed a cape here..!

My cape was working fine, but I think my superhero eye sight was a big lacking...

Super Dog with Pawsome Ear Flappage!

Perfect form!
We weren't just Super Dogs - we were also bouncy zoomie dogs!

Mom says a couple seconds after this photo was taken there was some 'argy bargy' - whatever THAT is!

Zoom zoom!

Nothing like Fall zoomies! (Yes, technically it is summer, but it feels like Fall here!)

Nothing like running so fast your ears are flapping in the breeze!

Mom likes this photo because she thinks it has a Fall feel to it.  I have no idea what she's talking about, but anything with tennis ball action is good, in my opinion!
Here's a ball for you, Mom!  Could you throw it again, please?

There may (or may not) have been a few misses with the tennis ball.  Hey, even Super Dogs aren't perfect all the time!

In addition to all our Super Dog activities, we put up with a lot of Mom's 'portrait taking'.  Given the amount of patience required from us, I think that makes us both Super Super Dogs!

Mom has also set up a 'photo studio' (aka a room where we get treats for having the flashy beast pointed at us) and she has been playing around there.

We're all excited because Mom has good treats!

If you want us to look at you, you have to break out the good treats, Mom!
Mom has also been playing around with some camera setting or something that lets her focus on our eyes (where else would she focus?!?).  Anyway, she seems rather pleased with her results so far.  We're rather pleased with the treats involved...

Woe is me.  Treats are not coming fast enough...

If I look pathetic, maybe Mom will give me more treats...

Treats?  If there aren't treats produced forthwith, I'm going to nap.


Have a great week!
