The ones that got away

I'm pleased with a lot of the photos I've managed to take of my dog-girls. 

But, for all the fun shots I've caught, there are many that have gotten away.

I caught this shot of Darby cleaning the dishwasher for me, but the one of her jumping OVER the open dishwasher door (I kid you not!) so she could run outside after Glenn and Pumpkin got away.  

I caught this shot of the table-riser centerpiece on our beautiful kitchen table, but the one of Harry leaping onto the kitchen table then jumping over the centerpiece as he ran away from the dog-girls got away. (Thank goodness he didn't leap over the candle -- he would have singed his belly fur!) 

I caught this shot of Harry running out the door just as Pumpkin ran in, but missed the one of Pumpkin trying multiple times to pull a too-wide stick through the too-narrow doorway.  (The stick finally broke and she was able to get inside with the smaller piece.)  

I'm always on the lookout for good blog fodder and I keep my camera handy all the time, but still there are those fish photos that manage to get away!

Great post!

And just in case I get bogged down in all the holiday prep and festivities over the next couple of days....

Merry Christmas!

We know exactly what you mean. Our camera makes a little noise when it turns on....and when we hear it, we stop doing whatever SHE wanted to photograph. (Drives her nuts.)

XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

Wow, I know my mom has the same problem! I like to blink and squint at the flashy beast then listen to her say HBO words! BOL She seems to be too slow with the zoom to catch all my zoomies! I liked the stories of your lost fish!
Grr and Woof,
