D is for Dedication

Tiptoe with Two Dogs
Dedication is putting your camera on a tripod in front of fields of tulips, setting the timer to take 10 photos after 10 seconds, then running through the mud with two large dogs to pose. Do this 10 times or so, and you might end up with one photo where both dogs are looking at the camera.

You might also end up with dirty jeans, mud soaked through your socks, and a car interior in need of detailing, but it’s so worth it.

Here are some outtakes.

Dedication also is a commitment to give your dogs the best life you can, to nurture their good qualities and help them through their challenges. We’ll talk more about that on Monday, when E stands for Every Day.

  2. Who had more fun, you or the dogs? lol. Beautiful pictures whether they were looking at the camera or not. I would love to learn that feature on my phone (even though I don’t have any dogs). Having a picture of a shepard in a post on decication is spot on!!!!

  3. Oh, I love it! The joys of trying to keep still those furry children! I once had professional photographers do a photo shoot of my little doxie mix. That was a hoot!

  4. Boy, I don’t know if I would of dealt with the mud but you did get some fabulous photos, the flowers are just beautiful and colorful, your dogs and you look great in front of them.

  5. Were you in Mount Vernon? I didn’t go this year.
