March 1, 2016 – Photo challenges

Dogs, family

So I decided to start doing the photo a day thing, with themes from a list that I get from pinterest. This months list:

And so, with the theme of the first of the month, being”Up”, I thought about how dogs and cats always are animals that look up to their humans. So I thought it’d be interesting to try taking a photo from a perspective of the human, looking ‘up’ at the animal.

I literally laid flat on my back, while Coco walked around, trying to get a good angle of with me looking up at her . She was distracted by my other dog Gage pooping, so I decided to just sit out on the lounge chair and wait for her to come to me.

The end product:

Day 41: A Family Potrait

Homelife, People People People

Well, my mother-in-law is in town.

Luckily,  she and I get along. She isn’t one of those monster-in-laws who make their son/daughter-in-laws lives a living hell because he/she isn’t good enough for their child. I’ve never met one of those moms, but I heard they exist.

It took 5-6 tries to get a picture where my dogs were perfectly still; my female dog Coco was stayed put for the most part, but would shuffle her feet a little forward as there was food in her bowl and I made her wait a little longer than usual before getting her food. In the end, turned out to be a pretty good photo.

Day 23: Dog sweaters

I never really had pets growing up; a stray cat maybe that would run away every now and again, and unfailingly would find its way back to my home to be fed scraps from a meal, but never a pet that I called my own.

Now, I’ve become a dog lover; I become one of those people who buys sweaters for those dogs.

I have another dog who is a male, but who my husband refuses to let me dress. I dont necessarily know for sure if my husband is ok with dressing my girl dog, but he must be if he constantly hugs her for being so cute in her sweater. Lol. I dont go overboad, just a sweater for those times in the winter when the weather is chilly.
