These two are elegance personified. Or should I say puppyfied?
PS. Thanks for Dragonhaven, just got it in the mail on Friday and it made my weekend :)
Okay. I’m not a dog person and I wasn’t really getting all the raving about how beautiful these dogs are. But now I think I see. Those are lovely creatures.
Oh good. :) You don’t have to WANT one to like all the swoopy lines. :)
(Comments won't nest below this level)
A beautiful photo of gorgeous dogs – definitely eye candy. What were they focussed on? Their bodies are so eloquent, intention in every line, and ears flying up with each bound. Gorgeous.
Oh, a ball. I will probably post this one of these days–these boys are just like the previous girls, I’ve never TAUGHT them to retrieve a ball–they can’t bring it to me FAST enough so I can THROW it again!!
If you get two balls, throw one, wait until they get almost to you then throw the second in the opposite direction… Great for days when they need EXTRA energy used up :)
My shepherd (Rosie)* is ball focussed when with my friend’s ball mad dog. We went for a walk and eventually the ball fell under brambles down a very muddy ditch. Xanthe (rescue grey mix) is NOT nterested in balls and has never picked one up. We tried to encourage the “ball” dogs to retrieve. Nada.
After ten minutes or so, Xanthe upped went thro and under brambles, picked up ball, brought it to my feet and placed it there. ???!!!! Xanthe still wont fetch or retrieve, but my opinion of her reasoning ability has risen many notches :)
* see, I DO do flowers after all! (and Xanthe is short for chrysanthemum.)
LOL! Yes, dogs do these things just to keep you guessing!
Lord, that’s just a gorgeous photo. :)
I have to say that is an AWESOME picture.
I love that you’ve captured Chaos midleap, and the way their ears are flouncing. They look like such happy hellhounds.
but… but.. they look *JUST* like I had imagined them! Well, except for the color, somehow I thought they were both black.
Wow! They’re so beautiful, especially in motion.
Airs Above the Ground!
How truly gazelle like! It’s great to be able to see them in my mind’s eye now.
One day I may possess a camera capable of taking a glorious shot like that! Then the BC would be immortalised in all her glory. At the moment she would just look like a blur!!
The picture to get would be the one where she is in mid air and in the middle of a spin. ::dizzy:: But she will never quite look as gazelle-like as hellhounds :)
