It was a gorgeous afternoon here, high 40s and partly cloudy so I decided to take Dahlia down to the park to "take a few photos."

A few turned out to be 312. Oops.

So here they all are!

Just kidding... )

OMG guys it was 65 degrees out this afternoon and the SUN finally came out. It's been one hell of a miserable week: rainy, windy, dismal, even a bit of snow that didn't stick around. But today it finally looked spring-like!

After session today, we took Dahlia out to the park with our cameras.

I told you that last one wouldn't be it. I'm FINALLY done editing this afternoon's photos and got them all uploaded. So behind the cut are tons of pictures of Dahlia, along with two other dogs and some scenery stuff. The weather this afternoon, btw, was sunny. YAY. Snow is almost melted completely! There are just a few small spots of it in the shaded areas!!

Photos! )

Ok so I can now FINALLY post some of the pictures I took today with my new camera. Between cleaning the kitchen, getting dinner ready, editing the photos, and taking Dahlia out at 8:20pm because she hadn't pooped today and decided RIGHT THEN that she had to go out (which is ok because I need that stuff for her vet appointment tomorrow morning! lol), I just haven't had time to get them up here. So...the first Dahlia pictures from the new camera!

Photos!! )

So like I said, BEAUTIFUL day (and no, the snow is NOT all melted, so the contest continues!). It was in the mid-50s and sunny for most of the day. So we decided to take Dahlia down to the park. We mostly wanted to get some photos of her with silly St. Patrick's Day things on (ok ok so *I* wanted that!) but we ended up having a total blast there!

Pics galore! )

I ran to the store in the morning to get some eggs yesterday and on the way there I saw this really super awesome snowman. So when I took Dahlia out for her walk, I took my camera to get some pictures of it. And then Dahlia and I went around the whole pond.

Along the way we met a few dogs, one of which was a young houndy/pitty/labby looking dog named Hershey. He was off leash and was obviously interested in coming to Dahlia. I always go to hook her up just in case and the woman called out "He's friendly." I told her Dahlia was too and so she let him come greet her.

Well, Dahlia was frozen in a stalking posture, which didn't seem to put him off. And he came BARRELING at her at full speed. Usually this would result in a dog who was freaked out. But it didn't!! He ran right up to her, play bowed and took off and she ran off after him. They raced around and back and forth. Dahlia was running so fast that she skidded out once or twice. Unfortunately I didn't get any photos of the play time because the light was crap and they were moving SO fast. And I was more worried about keeping out of their way. lol

So some photos )

I feel like I haven't taken any new photos of Dahlia in ages (ok so it's been like a couple weeks) and today was beautiful, 60 degrees and sunny, so I thought I'd take my camera out for some photos while on our walk.

David and I decided to take both dogs around the pond this morning. Well, we decided to head around at least part of the pond. It wasn't horribly hot, but the dogs looked pretty hot and mostly wanted to lay down in the grass. So we packed up some bowls, some ice water, and a bit of chocolate for David and I and headed down.

We took Teri off leash at the spot we rested at and she did brilliantly again. We ended up walking back to the other end of the pond with her off leash and she did GREAT. I was seriously impressed. She ran around and checked things out but always came back to us when we called her name. Dahlia LOVED having her off leash. Teri would go running to us or to something and Dahlia would go racing after her. It wasn't really playing on Teri's part (I'm not even sure Teri noticed Dahlia running after her), but it was on Dahlia's end and it was fun to watch.

Pictures galore! )

Subject of the day: XTREME CLOSEUP


I was going to save these photos, but I love them so much. Dahlia looks nice and cleaned up because she was at the groommer's yesterday.

More XTREME CLOSEUP and a few action shots )

Just a bunch more pictures!

I took Dahlia around the pond this morning. We first ran into some lady and her standard poodle (not Finnegan, the one we met before). She didn't have him on lead, but held onto his collar as Dahlia and I sat to let them pass. She asked if Dahlia was friendly and I said yes. She said "Oh good, some dogs are so unpredictable." So she lets go of her dog (Marley) and lets him come over to meet Dahlia and he INSTANTLY goes after her with teeth bared. WTF? Then she grabs him and yanks him away and said "Case in point" and walks off.

What the hell? Her dog attacks mine and MINE is the unpredictable one? I'm guessing this happens to her a lot, which means her dog is actually rather predictable. He doesn't care for most other dogs, lady. She was all snotty about it! And Dahlia was limping. Luckily it just seemed to be momentary shock and she was ok shortly thereafter.

We had a good walk around the pond, met a nice dog who looked like a Basenji/Smooth coated collie cross (no lie). She was really nice, but the woman had both a prong AND chain on the poor dog. She was using the chain to walk her. WEIRD.

I tried to set up an awesome shot of Dahlia chasing the ducks and geese today. I made her sit and wait, walked to the OTHER side of the ducks and geese, and then said "ok!" I guess I Should have said "go get 'em" so it was my OWN fault hat she ran to ME and didn't go after the birds. Oops. She did run down though and run INTO the pond. Good thing she's getting groomed on Tuesday.

When we crossed the road to head back to the car she suddenly got very interested in fetch and she ALMOST got it right (!!!!). I would throw the ball, she'd go get it, run back to me, past me around in a circle and drop the ball somewhere in my vicinity. It's better than her usual keep away. I got a lot of great fetching pictures.

So there are more Dahlia pictures. What else did you expect? LOL It's really gorgeous out there today. About 60, sunny, a good day to go around the pond. While there we met a lovely Golden retriever, also a rescue. She got her about the same time we got Dahlia. They're about the same age. And her dog was named after a flower too: Daisy.

Later on the walk we met a 9 month old Lab/shepherd/something or other dog. ALSO named after a flower! Her name was Lily. They had a pug too but I didn't catch the pug's name. Dahlia and Lily had some good times running around together. Lily was rehomed off Craigslist. They just got her a month ago and have been doing great things with her training-wise apparently. She's incredibly sweet.

So anyway...onto the pictures!

David took Dahlia down to the park today...I think she had a good time!

This results in a very happy doggy... )

It was such a nice day outside that David and I headed down to the park with Dahlia and our cameras. We couldn't resist getting some pictures of her in this nice sunny weather, even if the sun was starting to get a little lower in the sky than would be perfect.

I promise these pictures aren't the oddball ones like the ones posted last night. ;-)

First we had to chase the ducks. Well, Dahlia had to at least. She's really missed this!

More back here, including a couple pics of the dogs we met while out and about )

We finally had a sunny day here. I think it's been a month or so since I've seen sun. Seriously. So I took Dahlia out to the park to get some pictures in the snow.

Pics back here )

Dahlia and I went down to Petsmart today to get her picture taken with Santa. Everyone ADORED her there. We met a BC/lab mix who was 9 years old and a retired therapy dog. Nice dog. She and Dahlia got along great. We also met a lab/basset hound (which looked like a lab with very short legs and a bit longer ears), a Boston terrier who was larger than normal and really nice, and a whole lot of people who really adored Dahlia.

Some pictures...some that are really quite funny )

I took Dahlia down to Barry Park to get some photos of her in the Autumn leaves. Gotta have some October/Autumn photos for my calendar after all! I brought out the silly "jester" collar I picked up for her and her stuffed pumpkin. Just for sheer cuteness.

A friend of ours has been borrowing David's camera and reported that the battery seems to give out after only 4 or 5 photos, so I decided to charge it up and use it in my camera. Well, I got more than that, but still only about 25-30 photos (significantly less than the often 400-500 I can get on my other battery). Both David and I went down to Barry Park and took pictures of Dahlia (yeah I know...surprise surprise!).

Some photos )
