My Fingers Are Crossed!

I am hoping that Fancy can come home tomorrow! She has been entered in three MI shows where there is a major every day. Guess what Fancy needs to complete her Championship? Yup, just one major would do it. She just has to win one day out of three…..I haven’t heard how the weekend has gone so far, so I am on pins and needles to find out!

I still know of a boy puppy….VERY intelligent and easy to train! What a sweet lover! Seriously, I showed him how to go up and down the stairs just ONE time and he’s been trouping up and down them most happily ever since. If you have ever worked with a puppy on stairs, you know how special this is!

Much more typical gleam of mischief in the eye!

One very active little guy and a poem that describes some of the challenges of puppy photography:

How to Photograph a Puppy

Deceptively well mannered for this photo!

Remove film from box and load camera.
Remove film box from puppy’s mouth and throw in trash.
Remove puppy from trash and brush coffee grounds from muzzle.
Choose a suitable background for photo.
Mount camera on tripod and focus.Find puppy and take dirty sock from mouth.

Place puppy in pre-focused spot and return to camera.
Forget about spot and crawl after puppy on knees.
Focus with one hand and fend off puppy with other hand.
Get tissue and clean nose print from lens.
Put cat outside and dab peroxide on your puppy’s scratched nose.

Put magazines back on coffee table.
Try to get puppy’s attention by squeaking toy over your head.
Replace your glasses and check camera for damage.
Jump up in time to pick up puppy and say, “No, outside! No, outside!”
Clean up mess.

Sit back in chair with lemonade (preferably spiked) and resolve to teach puppy “SIT” and “STAY” the first thing in the morning.
