Marc & his Moose

We've gotten a lot done today: errands, chores and so on. One thing Marc wanted me to do was photograph some of his plants while they were blooming. I expect him to post a few of the photos on his blog sometime soon.

After I was done with the flower photos, I headed into the house. Bernice and Dodger came with me, but Mandy didn't. She apparently stayed out with Marc.

After a little while, I opened the door and called, "Mandy! Mandy Moosedog, where are you?" I figured she should come in for a drink, since she had been out for a while, but I got no response. "Moose!" Still nothing. (BTW, the Moose nickname is explained here.)

So, with the camera still in hand, I wandered back out. Rounding the back corner of the house, I could hear Marc talking. And then I saw this...


Mandy, hanging out with her Daddy Marc


No shot of Marc, but he was there, chatting with the neighbor, as Mandy wagged away next to him.

Later, Mandy, with a nice, big, grassy yard to use, decided to bask on a hard slab of concrete. Hoping for a nice photo, I called to her and got this over-the-shoulder shot...



Isn't she pretty?

AwwSoCute!

Her lying on the concrete is like cats with toys - You buy them 100's of expensive playthings and they only play with the brown paper bag they were brought home in.

She's a pretty dog. I love the pic -- her expression is priceless. :)

Lee: Good comparison! :) Actually, to be fair to Mandy, she usually grabs a stick and heads out onto the grass. But it was funny that she chose such a hot day to lie on the concrete!

Matt: Yes, she's very cute (and she knows it)! ;)

She's a doll! And, something tells me that she knows it.

She is a pretty pooch! And its nice to know that Emily Grace isn't the only one who likes to lie in the hot sun and bake her head when saner heads are dunking in cool water!

Such a cutie!

My dog's nickname is Moose too. :)

Jess said...

Allan: Oh, she knows it! :)

Greg: Yes, they have that in common!

Greg: Thanks. She thinks she's a model. ;)

ATG: Thanks, and it's a great nickname. Mandy got it from her propensity to land in people's laps. She's a bit big for that!
