I See Sun!

Guess what? The sun is out today and its actually somewhat warm (translation... I wore my thin leather jacket today instead of my heavy winter coat)! Yes, I said sun!!! Woo hoo... although we have more rain in the forecast for tomorrow into Saturday (translation: more snow melting + more water on top of it = a F&$%*N$# wet basement... aka the sorrows of Spring at our house).

So anyway... Happy SUNNY Dogs on Thursday! Don't forget to hop on over and sign up for the Spring Doggy Swap if you haven't already - you have until March 13th! And.. if you haven't already, would you please vote for my kids in the HSUS Spay Day photo contest? The direct links are above this post on my blog and voting ends tomorrow - March 7th. Thank you to everyone who's already voted!

I finally received my Winter Doldrums Dishcloth Swap package today... a full 3 weeks after it was mailed from Marilyn in Victoria, BC. I guess the US postal service isn't the only one who has resorted back to the horse & buggy delivery system, apparently Canada's isn't much faster. Inside the big envelope I found 2 sage green colored cloths, some yummy smelling Seaweed soap, Canadian chocolates, 2 extra large plastic stitch holders, and one full, plus a half used skein (?) of wool yarn...

Back to doggy Thursday... 2 nights ago I gave them each a Healthy Edibles roast beef bone and tried to use them to get a shot of all 4 together and failed once again. Holding yummy treats above the camera is the method to my madness my trick to getting Zeus, Lola & Tut together for the great 3 doggy shots, but unfortunately Sophie hasn't quite figured out the game yet...

Where's Sophie?

Here's Lola & Teutul doing their infamous

Since I didn't make it last night, I'll be stopping tonight to pick up Zeus' birthday cake and toy... at least I plan to. If not, I still have tomorrow night, right?

I wondered how you got such great shots of your gang. They are so well-behaved! Emma would be jumping all over me trying to get the treat in my hand. Hugs and kisses to the birthday boy!

It's hard getting all four to cooperate, but keep trying. You've done a great job with all the other photos.
