The sun is lovely and it’s warm and gorgeous out for the first time in what feels like a million billion years, so I took dog pics. The Dobes refused to pose for me, but Zille practiced her eye contact like nobody’s business!
First, I made Tink model the hat I just finished knitting, which is probably going to get me maimed in my sleep since Tink hates hats.
Once the hat got put away, Beowulf tried to convince Zille to play with him. When he gets familiar with another dog, he gives up on the niceties of playbows and instead attempts to initiate play by stuffing the other dog’s head in his mouth, like so:
However, Zille did not wish to play. She wanted to practice staring at me in the hopes that I would throw a ball.
I tried to get a good pic of Tink, but Tink was still pissed about the hat thing and refused to look at the camera. Still, you can get a look at how absolutely amazing her coat is right now! She show no signs of shedding it out, either. But check it, you can’t see her skin anywhere. She’s even a little glossy!
Meanwhile, Zille practiced Advanced Staring: the three-quarters face stare.
I finally got tired of being stared at, so I threw a ball. Unfortunately, that didn’t end the staring.
I’d say we’re getting reeeaaally good with the eye contact thing.
