It’s that time of year when the weather’s nice and everyone is ready to spend some time outdoors. But in order to go exploring somewhere new, you must survive the car ride. Sadie is much more well behaved in the car than other dogs I’ve seen. She doesn’t get car sick; she doesn’t bark or jump around. My little pup’s problem is more about anxiety in the car. If we’re not going to our office or our house, Sadie can tell and she’s not happy about it. Even if we are going somewhere really fun and Sadie will have a blast when we get there, in the car Sadie is panting and shaking. But on the way home, Sadie is usually one happy pup. All of these blooper photos were taken on the ride back from an adventure, when Sadie is all smiles because somehow her internal GPS can tell we are going home.
For this month’s Pet Blogger Blooper Round Up I’m sharing some photos I took of Sadie in front of a picturesque lily pond. It definitely takes quite a few more attempts to get a great photo of Sadie when we’re out in nature, but it was especially difficult at this lily pond. Although we were a perfectly safe distance away, Sadie had to face towards the road in order for me to get my photos. For some reason, when Sadie sees cars passing by she absolutely must watch every single one until it is out of sight. I’m thankful she doesn’t try to chase the cars like some dogs enjoy, but following each one with her head makes taking a good photo rather difficult.
For this month’s Pet Blogger Bloopers Round-Up I thought I’d share some bloopers of Sadie’s smile. Sadie was like a little kid during this particular photo shoot. She was in a happy, smiling mood when I decided to begin the photo shoot. But as soon as I pointed the camera at her, Sadie refused to smile. If I put the camera down, Sadie smiled. If I picked the camera back up, Sadie stopped smiling. Then I started asking Sadie nicely to smile for the camera and instead I got funny faces. When I said “please smile”, she stuck her tongue out at me!
