HS:MS - Dog

Man's best friend.

I thought this would be easy as we have 2 best friends here, how wrong could I have been. Bilbo is a black border collie and is totally unphotogenic as he is just one colour but at least he sits still so I managed to get a reasonably interesting shot of this mass of black.



Twig is gorgeous looking but I am sure he has ADHD as he can't sit still for more than 2 seconds. Every time we go for a walk he gets lost as he just runs and runs in any direction he can. Yesterday we lost him for 30 minutes in the local woods to eventually find him chasing rabbits in the fields. I tried for about 20 minutes to get a pic of him but my camera has been licked to death by this dog so I had to resort to photographing him through the baby gate hence the fuzz to the right of the picture (I think it's the gate it could be dog slobber) but it was the only way I could get a picture of him. I will try to sneak up on him later when he has a brief nap to get a better shot. Update - still trying to sneak up on him but no go as he jumps on top of me everytime I get near.




The final shot is of the boys just after we found Twig yesterday.
