Photographing Darby

In our small back yard, with a very fast puppy, I thought I'd share some of the "outtakes" of photographs of Darby. Of course I only usually post the cute photos, but for every photo that actually captures the puppy, there are at least three that don't!
Sometimes we get the "blur" Darby, as she's flying by faster than I can blink.

Then there's the ever-embarrassing "no dog" shot, where the puppy has dashed through and I didn't even catch her at all.

And finally, I capture her. But she's far too busy pestering Hawk to pay any attention to me. Darby has lots of important things to tell the other dogs, so she's quite busy flitting around from dog to dog, telling secrets, grabbing their elbows and ham hocks as they try to flee from her, and just causing general buzz around the yard!

Who's Walking Who?

I took Mele (visiting Vallhund) and Darby on a walk yesterday during one of our *brief* moments of sunshine. Mele is wearing the blue/green leash, and Darby is in the black/white leash. Not two minutes into the walk, Darby must have felt that I was doing a poor job of walking Mele, so she had to take over that responsibility. Thank goodness Mele is such a sweet girl and a good sport. I'm sure Mele will be glad to get home next week and away from Darby, her constant, annoying shadow!
