Our Week Was More Exciting Than It Appears From the Outside

Unless you have been living under a rock for the last 3 weeks (or this is the first time visiting us, in which case, thanks for stopping by, and be sure to leave us a note), our Mom has been taking a pet photography class, and pretty much all her photos of us have been directed at fulfilling her homework assignments.  Which has been fine and dandy when she was doing natural light photos, and natural light with 'modifiers' (flashes and reflectors and other shiny things) photos.  But this week was 'Studio Photography'.  Which means that Mom has a zillion photos of us in the studio, and about 3 photos of us playing tennis ball.  However, in spite of the abundance of studio photos, don't worry; we got plenty of tennis ball action.  We also got plenty of liver treats, as studio photos = liver treats!

This was one of Mom's homework submissions.  Needless to say, we got a lot of liver treats for this.

Yep, more liver treats were involved.

I'm a patient girl, but make sure those liver treats are in plain view!

Abby was getting ready to move forward and snatch the liver treats if they weren't forthcoming.

Dark and mysterious.

Not at all dark and mysterious!

Liver treats?  Right?

Maybe liver treats will fall from heaven.

Are there liver treats over there?!?

All of this modeling is hard work, and there were times when some of us needed a break.

Woe is me.  I am too tired to move.  You must administer liver treats immediately.
But like I said before, it wasn't all work and no play.  We got in plenty of tennis ball action this week.

This is the last week of Mom's photography class (after which, I guess, she is told to either take up knitting or put out her shingle and start charging money for her expertise, patience and liver treats), and this week's assignment is 'anything goes' so I think we'll have a variety of photos for next week!

Have a great week!

BTW, Mom knows (or thinks she knows) why blogger does weird things with the colors on some of our photos, but she says the amount of time and effort it would take to fix them all is more than she is willing to do.... Needless to say, you can pretty much tell which photos Mom put the extra time into tweaking the colors for the internet and which ones she just did basic edits and posted.

Another Busy Week and Much Use of the Doodle Launcher

Mom is busy with her photography class, which means she's taking a zillion photos of us (and a few other doggies - if you want to see her photos of other doggies, go check out her latest homework assignment submission).   But the good thing about Mom taking a PET photography class is that we are actively involved in her homework assignments.  So it's definitely not all work and no play.  Especially not for us!

We've been getting in tons of tennis ball action.






And in all this action, we have photographic proof that Abby really does have a clown nose!

The Doodle Launcher was also used quite a bit this week.  I think Mom needs to do a few adjustments on the Launcher.  Or Abby needs to have her own springs checked...

Invisible sky hook?

It's amazing she lands these launches!

Abby is also preparing herself for the Doodle Rapture!

As usual, Mom got a bunch of 'portraits' of us, and since Mom has a 1 pound bag of liver treats, we were happy to comply.

More liver treats?!?  By all means!

The last of the leaves (the aspens) are turning colors and getting ready to fall off (Mom is 'waiting' for those leaves to drop before she does the raking....), and we were able to help Mom get some pictures of the Fall colors.

Mom's next homework assignment has to do with studio photos.  Luckily she still has plenty of liver treats, and so we'll definitely help her with this next assignment, too!

Have a great week!
