…portrait….Boucle………

...sweetie-pie........

I started off photographing Christmas decorations, but Boucle was right there and irresistable, so I took of few shots with the flash set up of sweetie-pie.  He is such a good dog……I would say..stay….and he would, right until I finished…..so  incredibly patient and I am so very lucky he is with me………..

…are you getting ready?…..Rudolf is….Boucle is……

...sweetie-pie....

Tis the season, my Rudolf mug is out, my Christmas cards are purchased and will be ready to go, and this weekend I may or may not attempt the decor.  Still have raking leaves to do, so my Christmas decor may have to wait until next weekend.

This was not the intended image, and sweetie pie was not supposed to be in it…but sweetie-pie was hovering around the camera as I took some pictures with it. He was, of course, looking for his photo op, got in a few of my shots, and then gave up and let me snap away. I ended up liking this one the most because he was there, all comfy……….sweetie-pie ………

 

A good way to start my blog….with sweetie-pie…..

...sweetie pie - ears flying....tail flying.........

 My sweetie-pie was doing this for me.

He saw that I had come out with the camera, and decided he wanted to show off and play too, so he ran up and down the lawn while I pointed the black thing at him.  As soon as I put the camera down, he stopped all the running and went back to sniffing the lawn for squirrel tracks.  He really is such a good dog!
