I took a sick day today … I was up most of last night with a killer headache and by the time it finally subsided and I was about to fall asleep my alarm went off. I was like the walking dead, and emotionally exhausted from the head pain, so I called ‘er in and went back to bed until, like, noon.
So it was a lazy day for me, and I kinda dragged around the house this afternoon trying to avoid getting dressed and taking the dogs out. I was scanning back through some of the more recent posts on Wootube and realized that I’m always taking the piss out of my poor dogs, all goofy photos and stuff. When I finally mustered up the energy to throw on some boots and roam the acreage with the dogs, I decided to take some more noble photographs of my buddies.
Even Woo can look halfway noble, you know.
I was surprised by the sun, as I expected a rainy afternoon. But the blue sky made for some lovely backdrops.
For such a handsome dog, Dexter is a challenge to photograph nobly.
Poor guy is much better looking in person. In photographs he nothing more than ears, tongue and legs.
Even Springaling stayed still for 5 seconds or so, long enough to get a “romance” shot.
Speaking of romance, Dex finally posed for a shot with a little less tongue.
And since I’ve gone this far with the joke, I may as well take it a step further and say that TWooie doesn’t enjoy being a bottom, of this photograph is any indication.
I even managed to get a picture of Piper where she doesn’t look like she was slapped together with spare bits left over from other collies.
Someone posted a comment on a shot of TWooie on Flickr recently and observed it was interesting that so many huskies have at least one blue eye. Now, I know TWooie is carrying a bit of winter weight and does indeed look kind of husky, but he doesn’t look like *a* husky, does he?
Taking these photos today was a good reminder that even when things are going shitty for me, like they are right now, I am blessed to have 6 of the best looking dogs in the world as my bestest friends. Right Tweed?
Even if they are a little weird …
… they bring me great joy nonetheless.
Because they are pure joy.
Also, they make me laugh my ass off ;-)
