White Dog and Steve have been determined to successfully photograph our camera-shy boy, Quinn, more often. Most of their plans have resulted in shots showing TOWD's backside as he hurries out of the room or are blurry from the movement of his bolting.

Tonight WD and her cohort plotted for a Wordless Wednesday picture that would capture our Mighty One in all of his splendor. First, they made a few obvious attempts that they knew would fail. TOWD ran out the dog door and returned only after he was sure the mood had passed. Steve subtly set the camera on the edge of the snack tray, focused on the kitchen door. It was on and ready but he ignored it as though photos were a failed idea. Quinn relaxed a bit and wandered into the kitchen to scrounge for any pieces of kibble remaining in food dishes. Puff and Nuka crowded nearby looking for an opportunity to "clean up" as well.

Dum de dum. White Dog sat in her window chair, Steve slowly moved his finger to the shutter release while the camera remained unmoved, and at Steve's cue, WD gave the "mailman's here" call. The entire White Dog Army came charging into the room...and CLICK! the shot was captured.

Here is our Wordless Wednesday's offering:

And here is the mastermind:
And here is her partner behind the lens:

hey White Dog Army,

That is a superb shot! Kudos, Siku Marie and the dad, for your cunning and creativity! Quinn is a gorgeous pup and we love seeing him! But I understand his camera shyness, I know other (humans and pets) like him. But Quinn, just know that we love when you grace us with your beautiful face!

I think Siku Marie and her dad make a great pair. Wonder what fun they will think of next?!


p.s. Thank you for your kind words! I am glad I am back to blogging more, too!
