Lovely 8 Months Old
Lovely (Celhaus Love Every Living Thing) at 8 months
On December 11 we awoke to a couple of inches of fresh snow, a little sunlight and, amazingly, relative warmth between last week’s below zero readings and this week’s projected ones. Clouds blocked the sun so I didn’t have to fight shadows, but there was enough light to photograph. It was be just warm enough to operate the camera without gloves, too. The fresh snow makes for some fun photos as it flies up when the kids put on the brakes. I did each of the three (Mercy, Lovely & Cantor) during their regular morning play sessions, then I got out a bunch of toys and tried to photograph them playing, but they didn’t want to play together for the camera. At least I got some usable photos of everyone! Lovely turned 9 months old on December 16 and is one of the LL litter (GloryToo bred to Quasi).
Like her dad, Lovely is a two-ball dog. Unlike her dad, she won’t drop the ball she has so I can throw the other. Oh, no, this imp likes to tease and keep me guessing as to when she’ll drop her ball . to get these photos without taking an hour, I tried throwing my ball while she still had her ball in her mouth. I did get more chance of photos of her running, but I had to walk out to get the second ball so I got my exercise too. You’ll see two balls in a lot of these photos – look closely because they’re often hidden by flying snow. Note, too, how her impish personality shows in many of these shots.
