The theme this week in the Pet Photography Challenge Facebook group is thirsty. Sadie was being stubborn during our photo session and refused to drink while the camera was pointed at her. The only way I could get her interested enough in drinking water was to interrupt Sadie playing with her squeaky ball. I placed her ball near her water dish to try to convince her to drink while I took photos. Instead of drinking, Sadie grabbed the ball and put it into her water dish. She thought it was a great new game, drinking water around the ball and then trying to grab the ball back out of the water.
This is about as close as Sadie will to get any water, aside from the bathtub (where she doesn’t have a choice) and her kiddie pool (which is awesome and you should check it out here). I know lots of dogs enjoy playing in the ocean and in little streams that we see sometimes in parks, but Sadie won’t go near any of it. Although I feel bad that Sadie might be missing out on some fun, if I’m being honest I’m actually happy she doesn’t want to jump right in. Not only do I get to avoid all the hassle of a muddy, wet dog, but I also hate the water and don’t swim very well, so I’m glad I won’t ever have to jump in to chase after her.
The theme for this week’s #52Snapshots of Life Challenge is water. Sadie isn’t too fond of going into water, but she’s perfectly happy posing in front of some water. These lovely fountains can be found at the office complex where Sadie’s Uncle works. Who knew that a quick visit to an office building would lead to such a great photo opportunity. That’s one reason I love bringing Sadie with me, even for the most mundane errands. You just never know when you’ll find the perfect place for some doggie photos!
Sadie’s princess dog bowl was very appropriate yesterday when I served her royal highness some water in bed. And by bed of course I’m referring to my bed, because the princess has to have the best bed in the house. Continue reading →
