I was debating on labeling this blog entry either Yappy New Year or Hoppy New Year, because both would apply to the photo I took for this week's theme of the 52-Week Challenge. The theme is simply "New." Welcome, 2017.
For the first few years of being in our house we've had an antique ice cream shop table that was a little too small for our breakfast nook, next to the kitchen. It was my husband's grandparents' table that they purchased back in the 1950s so it had loads of sentimental memories. We had been wanting something larger to fill the space properly when I came across this table and chairs. We bought it for our breakfast nook and quickly realized something. We never ate meals at the old table, so we never had Colby jumping for food. It's a habit we've never seen in her because our dining room table is taller and for some reason she lies at our feet in the dining room. Here in the breakfast nook, she considers everything fair game.
Colby decided she NEEDED this half-eaten bagel as we were cleaning up this morning. On her hind legs, fully stretching as much as possible, her nose can touch the edge of the new table at most. I saw her head pop up and had to grab my camera for a shot of her laser-focus on our breakfast remnants. Here's the photo- check out those floppy cockapoo ears mid-air!
When it became clear there was no way of getting her to simply stop jumping and be quiet, I grabbed my camera and started clicking. My husband was probably wondering why there was all the commotion as he was getting ready - there was a LOT of barking, thumping, whimpering, and and thudding. Luckily I got a shot pretty quickly and the bagel was tossed.
Nothing like using our nice new furniture to tease the dog the sake of a photo!
So that's what is new here this week. To see the next pet photographer who has a different take on the "new" theme, check out Kim with BARKography located in Charlotte NC. It's part of the blog ring for the 52 week challenge. Keep clicking at the end and it'll eventually bring you back here. Happy new year!
