Aw! What a sweetie. Looks like he/she is waiting for a handout:)
He’s such a handsome boy! Love the Skippy pictures – whether he’s in the garden or not! – Daisy
He only looks at a camera if I offer a treat. Here he had his eye on a dog cookie with butter on it. (The actual command is “LOOK for butter treat”.) These are a favorite of Skippy’s.
It’s not fair! I can’t hug Skippy. He makes me want to, you know.
Too bad – he’d love a hug.
That is a great picture of Skippy. I have just written a paper on the various issues surrounding black dogs. It is really difficult to photograph them well, you have done a fantastic job. It is also difficult to get them to look straight into the camera. I will come back to this picture, it will make me smile now that the nights are getting so dark and depressing!
Is your paper on black dogs available anywhere? I’d love to read it.
It’s a real challenge to take pictures of Skippy. I was so happy his eyes are showing here. I always have to use photoshop and adjust the contrast and shadows in photos of Skippy.
Skippy is a VERY smart dog and knows the word “look” very well. I just wish I had more time to train him as he is so capable. He’s breed to be a working dog and I know he would love more challenge. Though he seems to enjoy guarding his pack and territory and does this well.
He is SO cute, big hug to you and Skippy./ LOL Tyra
That is a fabulous picture of Skippy! I have a tough time taking pictures of my Portie mix because when I try to get a shot, he rushes over to see what I want from him. He is very attentive to me, though not always obedient, lol.
Porties are just so smart!
Skippy has been really cooperative recently. He’s a good worker. I’m planning to start up some more training with him. Its a good challenge for both of us. If you’re in the area, the program at NEDTC is great. Skippy and I will see which of these classes we do best in. The drop-in format is nice.
It is REALLY hard to photograph black dogs! In most photos, they just look like a void in space! Check out http://www.flickr.com/photos/curtisjones/385464408/ for another black dog picture …Curtis Jones, PresidentBotanical Interests, inc
That’s a great photo of your black lab skimming over the snow! Even harder to get a shot when your your dog is moving fast!
(ps – I love your seeds.)
Oh, thanks for the link! I’m in school myself at the moment, but I really want to see what I can teach him to do. We’re right next to Boston.
