Well, I suppose by now you may be thinking that I should change my blog name to something along the lines of:
“Abra Alani: The pursuit of Toby and more Toby”
But, what can I do, when he’s acting so ridiculous, doing such random doggy things like barking at his own reflection and freaking out while walking over a steel-grid bridge as if he’s going to fall through?
“Help me. Help me. Help me.”
“Are YOU looking at ME?”
Well, as it goes, as soon as I decide on a thing like taking photos of rain and such what does the weather do but give us sunshine and dry pavements! :D Ah well, I suppose I can deal with it.
Toby was kind enough to stand still for 30 seconds in this random field of blue flowers while I got off a few photos.
I was trying something different tonight, involving a stack of books and a small power ranger, but that’s another story for another time.
Instead, Mr Toby decided to get in on the action. Here is the result.
He doesn’t even usually care about sticks, but for some reason this little 2 inch twig had his attention (could my waving it around like a treat have anything to do with it?).
I caught these two glimpses of Toby today. The first taken this morning while I was sitting on the floor tying my shoes, and the second this afternoon while we were out at the farm.
A few of the pooch, bribed to sit still by the treat I held just above the lens….
These were all taken at 1/50, 3.0 ISO 2800-3200. I’m lucky that treat held his attention so well! ;)
Isaac and I went to the dog park with Toby this afternoon, but because of the rain and such, there was just one other dog, a 9 month old boxer named Rhaego (Game of Thrones, anyone?).
Luckily, he was full of energy, and loved to play rough the way Toby does. They chased each other around for a solid half hour before his owner wanted to leave.
Meet and Greet
I asked the other owner if it was okay for me to take photos. He said “I don’t think you’ll steal his soul”
One of my favorites
Toby was covered in dog slobber and rain puddle water by the end.
Until next time.
He was pretty tired out on the drive home (and filthy!)
