Duke in motion

Last weekend since the weather was pretty nice Duke and I spent a little time in the back yard. While he did some exploring I tried to get a few pictures of him.



There is no getting Duke to look at the camera when he is patrolling the yard. I settle for a shot that isn't a blur.

I can relate to this post...it seems my girlz are NEVER looking at the camera...especially when they are out sniffing and patrolling!! Happy Friday!!

Sweet :)
It is very difficult to get a shot with Sammy looking at the camera!

Action shots are sometimes so much better than posed shots Ann. Duke certainly looks like he's busy checking the perimeter for intruders!!

Sir Duke Conan Doyle is Duke's new title!!! He's a sleuth of the backyard, investigating each and every crevice. And besides, he's just too darned cute!!!

I've been offline for some time now, and I wanted to stop by and catch up on you two....Love the work you're doing on the table topper, and love that you're the cool mom [I also love the reference to a 'mom in the making' at an early age...that's sweet] Oh, and can't leave without mention of your poetry recital!!!! That was really well.........cool!!! I don't think I'd like to be a purple cow either. Just think what Duke would do with me if he found me, a purple cow, lurking in one of the hidey holes!!! I shudder to think.

He was checking out all the smells and determining what critters have been visiting! I love how his tail is backlighted. And you should know that a high shutter speed is always needed for Mister Duke!

i like to sit in the swing with the long lens on and track what Jake does, looks pretty much like what Duke is doing. just a wandering and poking the nose in odd places. i love the 2nd pic

It's fun to watch what they're interested in. Cute collar Duke is wearing, but not nearly as cute as him! :)
Happy Friday!

You got three really nice shots of him patrolling the yard. He does fine patrolling too.

Have a terrific day and weekend. My best to Duke. :)

I have smudged many shots trying to get a little dog in motion.

Look like he found lots of interesting things.

Makes me appreciate pet photographers. I can very rarely get a photo of my cats even when they are asleep. Cute does photograph well...especially Duke cuteness.

He looks like he's on a mission while patrolling the yard! Sadie wouldn't look at the camera but good thing she had a cutie patootie!

Sharkbytes said...

That's a very important duty and he has to do it right!

Ann said...

It's been a beautiful week here too. So nice for Duke to get outside and linger. Tomorrow a cold front moves in. Booooo Have a good weekend, Ann!

As soon as I pick up the camera Moon comes over to see what I'm doing. He's so nosy. I can still see how handsome Duke is even without a face shot! Hope you have a great weekend!

He is sooooooooo cute. I know how they move - hey can he see with the hair in his eyes?

Rose said...

I hear you on the no blur photos! It looks like he had a lot of fun exploring the yard.

Sheryl Hastings said...

What a good little explorer he is! Bubba likes to do the same thing in our yard. They have to investigate everything.

A good watchdog never lets the paparazzi distract them while they are on patrol. FRY THAT PUP SOME BACON!
