Pictures!

It was a gorgeous afternoon here, high 40s and partly cloudy so I decided to take Dahlia down to the park to "take a few photos."

A few turned out to be 312. Oops.

So here they all are!

The pond. It looks a lot prettier than it smells.

Why does my dog take off from sits this way? I really need to take a video. Like she does this weird scramble thing and rises totally up from her rear. She doesn't lean forward and raise herself up with her front. She pushes off 100% with her rear legs so you end up with this.

She also spits her tongue out sometimes.

Playing with her Red Dog Tug!

Lookit how gigantic it is!

Dahlia attempted to get her eye with her tongue. Alas, she does not have the skill Nellie does.

I spent awhile throwing pieces of freeze-dried turkey over Dahlia's head and making her find them. She enjoyed the game once she realized what she was supposed to do. USE THAT NOSE!

So serious.

I attempted to stack Dahlia. I did not do a good job. I really have no idea how to stack her and she doesn't like me moving her legs around and will immediately turn or do something weird if I try to move her feet into a different position.

Missing tail!

Can I move now Mom?

Other than being a little bit twisted and her front legs being a bit too far forward (which is something I cannot fix with Steve- his front legs are ALWAYS too far forward) I think you did a pretty nice job of stacking her!

All the cool kids have Red Dog Tugs! :D

I love the picture of her with her paw up. I solemnly swear that I am up to no good.

It was hard to stack her AND take a photo too. I ended up telling her to stay and trying to toss turkey pieces out in front of her so she'd look at it. LOL

Her front legs are definitely too far forward and I feel like her back legs are a bit too. I don't think she's AS straight as she looks here (though she is a bit straight in the back).

It's much easier with two people, provided you can instruct the person on how to help you and have them actually FOLLOW those instructions. Sigh.

I'll have to have David try to help me out sometime. I feel like she's leaning back a little bit so her weight is shifted backward. But either way I think it shows her pretty well. And it's a photo with her summer coat, so she doesn't look quite so HUGE. Still lots of hair but not as much coat as a lot of the photos I have of her.

Thanks! I feel so lucky to have gotten it. I stood there for like EVER waiting for ducks to either take off or land.
