Penny Penny 2 by 4...

...can't fit through the doggy door. Poor PenPen has a weight issue. We restricted her calories and only give her one doggy treat a day now. She's lost weight, but she still could lose a bit more. We feed the recommended amount...less even. She gets plenty of exercise, too. Her vet says some dogs just can't eat as much. He also said that she SHOULD have a waist line.

Strike A Pose

"I look like a muscle man in my new harness, right Mom?"

"I look buff, right?"

"Okay, take one more while I strike my cutest pose."

"Please can I take this back inside and make a mess with it, Mom?"

Photogenic Pups

I brought out the ole Nikon D70 today to do an exercise out of Understanding Exposure for my photography group. It's the first exercise in the book. I asked Joel to stand with Sheldon and also took some of just Sheldon. All were taken with my 50mm lens @ f/5.6 in a shady area of the yard.

And here are just some shots I also took of the pups with the D70, but these are taken using Auto. I was shooting from odd angles, so I just held the camera up in the air or out in front of them and let the camera do the work.

Sheldon's Trip To Lowes

Every time we take Sheldon for a ride in the car he shakes and whimpers the whole time. Then he totally flips out if one of us gets out of the vehicle to run an errand. We try to take him places often so he'll get used to it. His big sis, PenPen, loves rides. He'll eventually come to love them, too...I hope.

Here's the wee man waiting on Dad to come back out of Lowes on Friday. He looked worried and he whimpered the entire time.

It's The Style, Mom!

All the cool pups are wearing their left ears flipped.

(no, I didn't flip them.)

Penny Traps Herself

So far the newest set of steps have not caught on. Penny knows how to use them, but refuses. Sheldon is scared of them all together. He went down them once this morning when Kolby came up with the idea to cover them with something familiar to him. Kolby laid his blanket over them and he actually went down them. So maybe we're making strides.

Now for the funny part. Penny and Sheldon were playing with Kolby next to the steps when Penny decided she wanted to see what they looked like from the inside. I would have never thought she could even fit under these things, much less scoot her big butt underneath the side of them. Once she got inside, though, she couldn't get out. I HAD to capture this funny moment before setting her free. She's such a stinker.

Sheldon & Penny Share

Every once in a blue moon the Wiener Schnitzels share a toy...
