First really nice day (summer-like!) in a long LONG time. I am so excited.

Auggie needs his ears thinned out. He’s got his rockstar/dreadlock look going on.

I wasn’t trying to be clever or artistic, I was just shooting.

My dog looks ridiculous when he runs because of all that hair, LOL.

I wish this one were in focus. =<

Little monster…

…is up to something. (As usual.)

Ohhhh hai. I’m a cutie.

Are you ready for this next one? Are you sure? Because I own him and I’m not sure I’m ready for it.

sjguijfsdhjlsh adorable

That’s his paw there. He was up on my legs.


Imma lay down here

I look dis way?

Oh I look over here. (LOL weird face. He was making a face at a bird. Trying to figure out if he could catch it and eat it.)

And then there’s these. I didn’t set this up or intend this or anything, he just lay down and I lay down in the grass to shoot. And I took a shot and realized. So I shot a couple more, then hugged my little dog and cried a bit, thinking of a dog that I miss every single day.

Kota has always been Auggie’s hero… Auggie wants to be Kota when he grows up. Looks like he’s on his way to achieving that goal.

Easter Egg Hunting in 2010

Hey look! It’s Auggie hunting Easter eggs and being SUPER EXCITED about it!
Look at his tail… LMAO

This year he remembered *exactly* how to get them open and get his treats out.

AN EGGS *tail wag*

I sit for egg?


Sitting nicely with his basket…

It was windy. And this photo just cracks me up because of it. It’s so model-with-a-fan, LOL

Knocking the basket over, as usual…

Pushing it so all the eggs will roll out.

Checking to make sure they’re really empty. =P

I put them all back in and made him lay down next to it. AUGGIE WAS PISSED. He wanted to push the stupid basket over and dump all his eggs out.


ONE good laying down pic (and notice that I had to reposition him on the other side…)

Nomming an egg as his reward for sitting nicely. Because I’m pretty sure I had to grab an egg and hold it up like a treat to get his attention.

(Don’t you love his sheep basket? I bought one for his breeder too because she shares my sheep obsession. I also bought… um… two more to put in storage… because I won’t always just have one dog… so I… I needed more than one sheep basket… DON’T JUDGE ME)
