(I like buttons!)
First her mum takes her out into the water …
…and Parker treads water for a while. Then Jackie lets her go, and it’s like Parker is trying to pull earth down from the skies to stand on, because her ass immediately sinks, and her front paws come way up out of the water. It’s a perpendicular (and peculiar!) sort of swimming.
It’s also much funnier in person. One day, I will get it on video.
So I don’t know what was going on at YOUR dog beach this afternoon, but at our dog beach …
So I hope you enjoyed these photos, because they are the last ones you’ll be seeing for some time to come. Because today, my camera broke. Now when I try to take a photo, this is what I get:
I am of course referring to the GIANT BLACK BAND across the photo, and not the Scary Monster Woo in the background.
After some foot stomping and crying and feeling sorry for myself and general bad-moodedness, I googled the issue and I *think* it’s a problem with springs and mirrors (hoo boy, that takes me back to my youth! But I digress).
So my camera is now dead to me. And you. I can send it in for repair, and hope it can be fixed. If it can’t, we will hold a funeral for Three Woofs And A Woo (the blog, not the actual dogs) because I’m poor and can’t afford another camera. Are there no pledge drives for photographers who are down on their luck?
Woe is me.
So I bid you farewell the now, devoted fans of the Border(and-line) Collies, and we hope to see you again some day.
