Blurry Photos - a conversation with momma

Momma, why aren't there more action photos of me in the flashy?

Well, Dex, you're so fast, by the time I even think about taking a picture, the moment has past.

Couldn't you just work on your reflexes?

I suppose. But you know you are very camera conscious.

How so?

Whenever I have the flashy you think you are going to get a cookie and you stop acting naturally and start doing tricks.

It's always worked in the past.

Yes, but it isn't what I'm looking for and, oh, never mind. How about we get out the tennis ball and try to get some super action pictures?

Roger that.

MOMMA! Can't you please adjust the f-stop or hold your hand still? I'm all blurry!

How can I show off my soaring abilities when you throw ground balls?

This is better (even though it makes my head look kind of big).

And now a cookie perhaps?

Dexter done!


  1. Bravo, Dexter! Soon you'll be giving those Dorkadoodles a run for their money!

  2. Nice leaping with the labralauncher! We should have national flying competition - friendly, of course, and with cookies for all! Our Mom is using the excuse "oh, but the sun is so low in the sky that the camera is always in low light mode and it doesn't get good action shots in low light; maybe I need a new camera." Sure, Mom. Go get a new camera, as long as it doesn't come out of our bully stick fund! And what's wrong with getting a cookie for looking at the camera?

  3. We see that you have decided to do some PEEP Training, Dexter. THAT was a very good session. We believe that there is some HOPE fur her to learn !! Keep up the training sessions... remember to be Consistent.

  4. Yup. Looks better already.

  5. Whoa! Dexter, you got the moves! You deserve lots of cookies for that.

  6. Ah the cookie pose is always the best. I do enjoy your action shots. The blurriness makes it more real. You are just too quick for the camera.

  7. We hope you got more than one cookie, Dexter! Brilliant tennis ball action pictures!

    Love ya lots♥

  8. Howdy Dex, hey mate, why run after a ball, leaping and chasing when you can get a cookie for doing, well, nothing. It works for me. No worries, and slobber, Rory (who doesn't do action shots) and Stella (who will do anything necessary to get a cookie).

  9. Every time Gail misses an action shot, I remind her that she was too tight fisted to pay extra for the camera that had less of a delay….
    Toodle pip!

  10. Dex, you are such a cute boy!!! You sure do know how to work your momma!!!

  11. Go Dexter, you are flying for sure!!!!


  12. Flying dogs deserve cookies! I hope Momma paid well.
