Dueling bloggers

Sandra from Mad Snapper and I are in the midst of a duel. Before I proceeded I sent my trusty sidekick into Snapper territory to scout out the competition.

Duke flew into Florida on Saturday and when he first arrived Baby Girl tried to chase him off suspecting that he was there to spy.

Exhausted from the heat, he took refuge under a shady bush and explained to both Baby Girl and Jake that even though I had sent him for the purpose of collecting information he had no intentions of doing anything other than vacationing and getting to know his blog pals.

It wasn't long before the three of them were enjoying a rousing game of London Bridge

Duke had such a good time that he almost hated to come back home but he knew he was needed here and couldn't ignore his responsibilities. He did come back with 2 wonderful portraits oh himself with each of his new friends.
One with Baby Girl who he says is quite attractive for an older lady

And another with his new buddy Jake who Duke says is much smaller in person than he is in pictures.

The purpose of this duel was for each of us to snag pictures from the others blog and without telling what we were doing, create edits of the dogs. I can't wait to go see what Sandra has done. Hopefully my day at work goes quick so I can get home and see.
To see the other half of the duel go visit Sandra at Mad Snapper. 
I hope you had as much fun with this as I did Sandra

Good morning Ann,
I am here visiting from Sandra at Madsnapper. Just had to check out how you made your pictures about the dogs. You did a great job, I love the one where Duke is laying in the shadows.
Have a great day!

Duke is so brave! And I'm so glad he had such a good time in Florida. LOL.

Great job Ann! I loved Sandra's too.

I know you guys had a blast but you can't possibly have had more fun that we all are having while watching the dual. You guys are just too much. I'm so glad I found your blogs. :) HugZ!

I just popped over from Sandra's for a visit. It looks like you two have quite a duel going. You have some great shots, I love your last two of Duke with Baby and Jake.

We also think Duke is very brave.

Hi Duke and Ann

SweetMarie said...

Wow! This is a super cool post! I just love the pics and story line! I really like the London Bridge photo! I just visited Sandra's post, great stuff there too! You two are Photoshop sisters! :)

Erika, Artful Rising said...

What a fun post. I was really thinking that Duke had gone on a long vacation but then was suspicious with the London Bridge photo. I could not imagine you taking that photo calmly with Duke underneath those other two.

You will have to update the Nico Designs URL in your blog roll. I have had problems with my site and my blog is now http://artfulrising.blogspot.com

Sorry for the mess!
