02.22.11 - HURTS SO GOOD

I've been delinquent in posting while I am loading my entire catalog of images to Lightroom. 2010 alone has taken over a week!

Today I was able to eek out one layout as I had to stop the upload to output images to a client. The program is able to handle multiple actions, but it does slow down the processing on my MacBook Pro. There is an iMac in my near future as I revamp my office, workflow and services.

I have been promising Christy photos from our day with her and her dogs, so here are a few of Brody getting his first body work session. He went from drooling and heavy breathing to a snarling, writhing ball of flying hair whenever she would hit a spot that was sore! (Not a side of Brody I have ever seen!) But it was over as quickly as it began, and he would relax and submit.

I didn't move around the session 1. because I didn't want to disturb the tranquility and 2. because Jimmy spent some time sitting nearly on my head as I was laying on the deck to be at dog level.

I'm pretty sure Brody would have gladly stayed in NC. My mother is very happy to know that she will not have to become a dog owner again if something were to happen to me. Brody would like me to put in my will that he will be becoming a beach comber in this case!



I promise this blog is not just going to be a love fest of Brody. That being said, today he got his belated Christmas presents. So as I work on some album design coolness you will have to make due with more uber cute canine! Since he has destuffed all his stuffed toys, and has been shorted plastic bottles since I gave up soda, he has been wanting some things to sink his teeth into. (As made clear by the shredded pile of baby wipes I came home to the other day.) We are lucky to have some really good feed stores in the area, and I was passing Pickering Feed in my travels. I am always careful about buying American rawhide. Some of the imported hides have been treated with chemicals that are not exactly things you want to be ingesting. Did he need the two-foot long bone, no. But it promised funny images. I should have shot video, but the 10 minutes of him wandering around the house just carrying it with him and drooling wouldn't have been as funny as it was in person. 01.19.11
