My Camera Arrived!

Here's one I took of the Ben Dawg:
I used the crop editing feature, and then a "Fun Feature" called "spotlighting" to make the background disappear. Is it just me, or are there ghost images in the background?

This, of course, is the Legendary Tipper Sharpton. The camera is so sharp is caught the small piece of grass on the right side of his muzzle. And it makes the few white hairs on the left side look a LOT more noticeable than they really are. BTW, his eyes aren't blue, that's the camera's version of "red eye" with Tip's black eyes. If you look in the lower left corner of the pic you can see the tip of white on his right rear paw. All 4 paws have that "tip", that's how he got his name.

And, savin' the Best for last, here's the Boo Girl showin' off her Pretty Paws and new sleek hair cut in a pic the Dearly Beloved took last night.
Funny thang about those paws, she HATES to have them touched. Always has, ever since she was a pup.

I've got to figure out how to get rid of the "red eye" when takin' pics of the dawgs. And next time I'll try to get a pic of Boo's gorgeous Left eye, which is an Icy blue.

Hope y'all enjoyed lookin at these as much as we did takin' 'em.

What a magnificent set of beasties. Ben is just plain handsome, and he's such a good boy. I'm amazed that little scrapper Tip isn't just a blur in his photo. And of course, Boo is quite the fetching damsel. Your dogs are so cool. Then again, I've always observed that the nature of a dog is very much a reflection of their masters' demeanor. Yours are mellow, sweet and good. Tipper's a handful yet, but that's just puppy energy, and he'll mellow out with the rest of them soon enough. Great to see a photo on your blog, and I'm looking forward to more!

well, on the end of "mellow, sweet and good" I should have included not to be trifled with. Ben's such a gentle giant, but I wouldn't invade his yard unannounced.

Love the critters. One of these days I'll have big dogs.

FHB, we are currently looking for a Lab Bitch willing to bear Ben's babies.
If we are successful, would you be interested in a pup? Labs make wonderful,loyal,loving dogs. And as much as you like the outdoors, a Lab would make a good companion for your trips. They love the water, so the canoe trips would be a special treat. Whadda ya say, FHB?
