Day 1 ... 364 more to go

January 01, 2017  •  1 Comment

I've decided to take on another 365 day photography challenge. I did this (and succeeded at finishing) back in 2012-2013. I've attempted a couple other times but just didn't keep up. All of those can be found here on this blog if you'd like to check them out! Once again, my goal is to improve my photography skills along with blogging a year in my life. Some days may not have top quality photos (like today) but, my thought is this: Any day or anytime I pick up my camera, it makes me 'think photography' and therefore I learn, even if it's just some little something. And, from learning, I'll grow as a photographer. Today, well, it's been a day of tearing down the Christmas tree and I almost forgot I wanted to start this project. SOoo me! :/

But, anyway...let's get this party started!

You can just see the lack of excitement all over their faces. They're so underwhelmed with my idea of adorning them in New Year's party hats and such. I say I have some canine party 'poopers' on my hands. Believe me, for them, it's only a party if it's a wrestling match, they're tearing up some random item they're not supposed to have (ahem, like the Santa hat that just got chewed in two while I sit here blogging) or ravaging the yard. Let's just say it might be easier for me to name something they haven't tried to chew/eat rather than what they HAVE chewed and/or eaten...and survived. What can I say except think the Bumpus hounds from A Christmas Story, throw Marley (x2) in the mix and there ya have my furbabies! Trust me, I wouldn't lie. And, we're crazy in love with them in spite of it all. :)  

So, without further ado... Meet the hounds! The Divine Miss P (Piper) and Sophie (So-PHEE', as Harrison my grandson says it which is beyond cute, btw), aka Sophina and Josephina Dirt.

So, there they are in their finest New Year's party accessories. Happy New Years everyone!!!

Many of you know them well from my fb posts but this is their official blog introduction. Piper, my gorgeous beauty, the black Lab, is the reigning queen. She holds herself in the most regal stances even while chewing a shoe. Then there's Sophie, full of love and always appears to be smiling. She's our Aussie/Border Collie mix. We don't really know what she is but, she has enough Australian Sheperd in her for it be prominent in her looks. 

 Argus, (the Husky/Malamute mix) is our handsome grandpup. And well, he's just too damned well behaved for our rowdy crew! Too bad they don't pay attention and learn from his example.

Dream on, GiGi... (I do speak in third person sometimes when I blog.)
