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.


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

    Have a terrific day. :)

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

  3. 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!

  4. I think is a super photo...

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

  6. 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.

  7. 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!

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

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

  10. 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.

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

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

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

  14. 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!).

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

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

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

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

  19. 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.

  20. 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!!

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

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

  23. 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??

  24. 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.
