furkid friday: dog parts (rat terriers, in macro!)

April 8th, 2011 9:46 am by Kelly Garbato

This week I spent a few (much-needed) lazy afternoons outside, alternately napping and chasing the dogs around the yard, camera in hand. I can’t remember why, but I thought it might be fun to take some “macro” shots of the dogs and all their adorable little body parts: eyes, noses, behinds, ears, legs, tummies.* (Lever 2000, holla!) Now I realize that this might make for an awfully cool art project – print and display my favorites in uniform sizes and frames, arranging them on a single wall to make one larger exhibit. I just need to find an available wall!

And more pictures of Ralphie: of all five dogs, the 13-year-old, one-eyed wiener dog proved hardest to catch on camera. Go figure.

“Bitch, please.” Kaylee’s look of annoyance. (Not that I blame her; I spent more time chasing her around than all of the other dogs combined. Her body, it’s just so weird and misshapen!)
