This is going to be short and sweet.
I (finally?) contracted COVID and it’s hitting me like a bag of bricks. I can’t believe I’ve avoided it for so long.
A few weeks ago, I wrote about how I’d rather work with dogs who don’t like to sit still during their photo shoots.
I’m a big fan of The Power Pose.
But lately, especially after trading up to a Nikon Z9 mirrorless system, I’m loving a dog in action.
Bella isn’t much of a runner
She likes to amble.
I can get her to run in the backyard if I have some super stinky, extra delicious treats in my hand but Bella seems to prefer taking her time.
She’s very observant of her surroundings, which isn’t at all surprising with a livestock guardian dog.
Or maybe she’s just trying to teach me to slow down.
Here she is on the mean streets of Leavenworth, Washington, last week:
She took her sweet time on this little stroll.
When I get to see dogs being dogs, I’m in my element.
I even wonder some time if they might be a little annoyed when they’re forced to sit still. I mean, I was never good at it either. I always have to be doing something.
Check out Nyjah, a young Malinois, in full bolt to chase down her favorite ball:
Or Lada enjoying a day at Riverfront Park:
How much fun are these dogs having?
A wheelchair dog in action
Even my superpowered dogs can get in on the fun.
Here’s sweet Grandma Holly, a boxer with degenerative myelopathy, having her best day at Plantes Ferry.
All around the circle
That’s it for me this week. I’m going back to bed now.
You can check out some more dogs in action with the pet photographers blog circle. Start with Toronto pet photographer Terri Jankelow of Terri J Photography capturing photos of dogs in action.
At the end of Terri’s post, click the next link in the circle and keep doing that until you get back here to more than one dog in action around Spokane and North Idaho.
That’s when you know you’re home.
Right where you belong.
I hope you’re feeling better! You get an award for even participating this week. 🙂
Thanks. Consider my ass squarely kicked by COVID.
Short and Sweet for sure but those great dog in action shots tell the story well enough! Feel better soon.
Ugh, sorry about the Covid. Hope you’re feeling better and symptom-free soon.
I’m so with you on the power pose! But wait, also with you on the Z9 and the action!
I hope you’re feeling better Angela! I’ve seen Bella in action, you know. lol. Her Zoomies do not last long but, boy, is she funny!
Great post this week! The dog in the wheelchair gave me warm fuzzies. We have the best job!
Covid and you still managed to blow and serve up some lovely action shots. Good on ya!! Also, I LOVE Leavenworth. Little slice of Europe in the PNW.
First, I’m glad to see you’re on the mend! Bella needs her own action on the go!
