Looking Out: The only time I am able to get a decent picture of the trio seems to be when they are at a door. Here they are helping me prepare for the upcoming holiday. They are watching me put out the dog and cat skeletons and all the DogDaz tombstones as we turn the yard into a Halloween graveyard.
Looking In: The back door is another opportunity to get the 3 together in a shot. They want to come inside after playing in the yard. I love the intense looks on Louise and Sofie’s faces. They seem to be staring right at me to say, “Please, Mommy, let us in and give us treats.” I never know what Charles is looking at (Bark Out Loud).
How do you capture the best shots of your furballs?
Some people don’t think my dogs are bonded to each other because they are very independent souls. However, I find that Louise and Sofie are closer as they get older. Louise actually waits outside the door for Sofie to come run in the yard. Maybe its because she wants a playmate, but I think it is because she enjoys her company. Neither of them seems very bonded to Charles, who has been with us for 2 years this December. Maybe that is a size thing? However, the other day when Charles was yapping because he could not see us when we were outside by the water, Sofie ran to him and it kind of looked like she was telling him that everything would be ok. Maybe it is my anthropomorphizing dog intentions, but I do think they care for each other over caring for strangers.
