Get your game on

Well today I'm up to bat. I've been called upon to participate in a little game by flyingbeagle over at Vanilla Seven. Now I know that I can't come anywhere near to having a picture as good so I'm not even going to pretend :).

Here are the rules:
1. Go to your photo files, select the 8th photo folder
2. Select the 8th photo in that folder
3. Post that photo along with the story behind it
4. Then challenge 8 blogging friends to do the same!
There isn't much of a story to tell here. This was taken on January 3rd of this year. This was right after I got my new camera so I was snapping away and just having fun getting acquainted. I didn't even attempt to do any editing to this shot. Duke was sitting on the couch looking ever so cute in his red sweater and so I took the picture. The lighting is bad, the background is distracting but it's Duke so it's all good.
Since I don't follow rules very well I'm just going to challenge anyone who stops by and reads this to play along.

Hi ya Duke. Looks like to take center stage a lot at your house. Good for you.

Have a terrific day. :)

I dig that sweater! I don't think I have 8 folders of pictures, so I will have to pass. Ha

Lin said...

Hey, Vanilla7 tagged me too! I have to do that after I-Love-Hobbes-Thursday--I can't wait to see what photo I find.

Duke looks so sweet in his red hoodie!

Grace said...

I think is a super photo...

Poetic Shutterbug said...

Duke should be a model, he is just THE CUTEST!!!

tahtimbo said...

I think it's a great picture! Duke, as always, looks great. I'll have to look around my computer and see if I have a picture.

BeadedTail said...

Duke does look oh so cute in his red sweater! We didn't even notice the background because our eyes stopped on his adorable face!

Bossy Betty said...

Oh Duke!!! I have the same shirt, but it does not look as good on me! said...

Yup Red is definitely Dukes best color, I mean look at that stud. Irresistible :-)

Great photo of Duke. My photos are all crappy so I'll have to pass. My verification word is dogizer I thought that was funny.

Ratty said...

Even without editing it's evident what a handsome guy Duke is.

VanillaSeven said...

He looks so striking in red vest! Thank you for participating ann :)

fullet said...

Well it's a great photo, he looks so cute in red!

FishHawk said...

Hmm, this post looks awfully familiar. In fact, it looks just like one that came and went in a flash (except for those who are subscribed to your blog) earlier in the week. Oh well, it is always good to see a picture like that of Duke (AGAIN!).

DK Miller said...

Duke looks great!

Audrey said...

Great photo! LOVE the red sweater :)
I didn't think the background was distracting until you mentioned it. LOL

June Zach (Fledgling Blogger) said...

The red sweater really looks nice on Duke. Good 8th photo in the 8th folder entry! ^_^

Donna said...

Lord...all you have to do is pick UP a camera and they turn out great....Hahaaa

Sharkbytes said...

I'm posting an entry to appear while I am gone next time. It's fun when the picture is halfway decent!

Out on the prairie said...

I believe there might be a lot of photos of Duke. Laugh when I see my dog in park shots running around, hey I told her she needed to be on a leash. said...

well as always it is a superb shot ok Duke |Ann,,,,glad you played the game otherwise we may never have seen this shot...I won't take up the challenge as i have already been tagged and done the post!!

Anne said...

As usual, Duke looks absolutely amazing. I love his stylin' sweater.

B Boys Mom said...

I love his little sweater. As always Duke is just too cute.

WillOaks Studio said...

I love your 8 in the 8th photo-it's a really nice photo-and that Duke is just too darn cute. After Dakota...I am interested in getting a similar little guy...what breed is he? And is he a good watch dog/door bell??

Ann said...

Sandee, Duke OWNS the

urban cowboy you would probably cringe if I told you how many folders I have

Lin I was worried since I tend to keep so many BAD pictures. I don't know why I do that

Grace but of course, it has Duke in it :)

poetic shutterbug I think he should be too but I don't know that he would take direction too well

tahtimbo Duke just can't help looking good

beaded tail I think red is Duke's best color

bossy betty you and him could be twins in your matching sweaters.

manoverboard yes he sure is. very hard to say no to him

jude that is funny. I bet you have better photos than you think

ratty he's a natural that's for sure

vanilla seven thank you for the tag, this was fun

fullet I love him in red. He has an orange sweater also and though he looks cute in it, not nearly as cute as the red

Fishhawk ah yeah, that would be a little mix up on my part. I had a DUH moment

DKMiller he sure does

Audrey lol I guess I shouldn't have mentioned it then huh?

Junezach yeah I lucked out, good thing it was a picture of duke

donna I could show you some really bad photos I really do have a ton of those

sharkbytes yeah, but it's easy to cheat too and no one will know the difference

out on the prairie a lot is probably an under

allotment4you yep I saw yours, and you're right this one may not have made it to the blog since it's in a pretty old folder.

Anne I wonder if I should get Duke a stylin haircut make him look really cool

bboysmom he does look pretty cute in a sweater. And to think when I had labs I always though putting clothes on a dog was

willoaks Duke is a West Highland White Terrier. He is a wonderful watch dog. He not only barks at the doorbell but he barks at anything that moves outside the house. I've woke up in the middle of the night to his barking. He'll sit on the bed and look out the window if I have the blind partially open and bark if he sees anything.
