It's been a while since I've posted pictures of my crew. We have a easy set pool in our backyard filled up only half way so the dogs can touch, and Degan and Harlow love it... Degan is obsessed. I mean I can't keep him out of it! last night at 2am he jumped in! His routine... EVERY time is to swim for a loong time, and then hang on his spring pole for a little bit, and then go right back to swimming, and repeat!
My boyfriend's brother let me borrow his 50mm f1.8 lens to try it out and of course I fell in love... so much so that I ordered two today: one for my DSLR and one for my SLR... I'm kind of bummed because uploading to facebook seems to lessen the quality of the images, but I don't want to take the time to upload them to photobucket so these are copied URLs from facebook. I had some focus issues with the dogs' movement and not being used to such a shallow depth of field, so I really can't wait for mine to get here so I can get more comfortable with it all.

I know a lot of you have seen them on facebook already, but I had to post a thread anyway. The dogs said they were feeling neglected...

Anyway, starting with Degan, my resident guppy...

This image was really under-exposed so i had to manipulate it like crazy to get any definition... he was making such a regal face that I had to salvage it!
Image

While Harlow and I were just hanging out in the yard, I looked over to see this:
Image

Shortly after taking the most adorable picture ever, he decided he needed to up his macho...
Image

Apparently he was baffled that I asked him to drop it and sit for a second
Image

Once I started grabbing his tire to get him to look in my direction, he got suuuuper excited, apparently!
Image
Image

Then, as I got back behind my camera, he decided to use me as a backboard, or springboard, or a leg up ... or whatever you want to call it. He launched right at me, getting mud all over and resumed his tugging that I had so rudely interrupted...

Then he decided he was going to ham it up for a bit
Image
Image
Image

Next I guess I'll go with Boss man, who happens to be ridiculously photogenic...(really he just doesn't move around much, but hey, whatever works!)

I had switched Boss and Degan's collars and crates in a feeble attempt to desensitize them to each other... but that didn't work.
Image
Image

He is just so freaking pretty!
Image
Image
Image

I think of this one as: "Boss, pretending to be a boxer puppy"
Image


Last but certainly not least our little monster, Harlow. She was working the camera yesterday, so I took advantage. She usually bounces from place to place too quickly for me to get much.

One of her biggest obsessions is flying bugs... Which obviously makes her look completely crazy because no one else can see them, but... that's part of her charm?
Image

Because the pool is a little bit deeper than she is comfortable with, she has established her 'perch'...i.e. a broken patio chair that we usually use as a footstool!
Image

After swimming she thought it would be a supreme idea to find some mud and roll in it...
Image

But then she turned into a polite little lady and laid in the shade while she watched Degan do his macho spring pole stuff
Image

She was even kind enough to give me a couple of derps... I'm forever grateful of course.
Image
Image

But along with her derps, I got the best photos I've ever shot of her. They are hilarious, and more importantly ADORABLE.

and quite possibly my favorite photograph of all time:

I shot a few rolls of film as well, so if I can I'll try to get those scanned and posted too!

I agree with Joyce. I forgot how beautiful each of your dogs are.

You have some gorgeous dogs. I'm especially partial to Degan though... :heartbeat:

Thanks guys! I l'm sure I'll be overloading You guys with pictures once my lens comes!

I think we have gotten lucky...our dogs are so different from each other, but I agree that they are all gorgeous! (granted, I might be a bit biased but still.)

Great pictures!
The one of Degan resting his head on the side of the pool is super cute.
