head shots

I took these photos yesterday. You can tell Oreo was still pretty tired from his trial on Saturday. I decided not to trial on Sunday, since in the morning Oreo kept going from one bed to another. He didn't even ask to play ball until after dinner. Usually, the ball is in his mouth right after our morning walk.

I just love Oreo's expression in these photos. You can tell he is constantly thinking.

And Misty, well, she is just being Misty, not so sure if she thinks much at all. She's slightly worried to have the camera in her face, but hoping, really hoping, for a treat out of the bag on my lap. Misty has really come out of her shell this summer, with all the excursions to trials and classes. Once a very shy dog, at the trial Saturday, she was nosing her way up to strangers, looking at them longingly, hoping for a treat. Misty is just the sweetest dog ever. I still can't believe someone gave her away, but am so glad I was the one who got her!






I just love Oreo's perfect, symmetrical white strip of fur on top of his head.

Great shots! I cant believe someone gave Misty up either. Their loss is your gain. Diana

It is hard to believe someone gave such a sweet girl as Misty away. That is coming out a lot for her to go up to strangers looking for a treat. Great shots of them both. Helen

They are just beautiful dogs! And so lucky to have you, as you are lucky to have them! Sounds biblical doesn't it! LOL! She's such a sweetie, you did really well to get her to come a bit out of her shyness, she's that much happier for it. And Oreo, what can you say, he's a WINNER and proving it too!
