Tootsies

My post on 'snooters' last week got a lot of comment so I decided to try another body part. I thought taking photos of noses was difficult. The dogs either turned away at the last second or they walked up and tried to lick the camera.

I thought tootsies would be easier. Wrong!!!

This is Samba. As you can see she held still for me. I think that dog would do anything I asked of her, except walk nicely on a leash.

The others were not so easy. I found that the best way was to put them in a down position, then roll them over for a belly rub.

This is Noah. The problem is that as soon as I stopped rubbing the belly, they started moving around.


This is Sky. I finally had to rub the belly with one hand while positioning and snapping the camera with the other.


This is Fudge. The big problem was that I couldn't see into the screen to see what I was taking a picture of. I think a second person to rub the belly is called for if you want good clear tootsie shots.

Giggle, giggle...who ever would have thought that taking a picture of their tootsies would be so hard. I have a great idea...you could do doggy footprint cards, I am sure they would hold still for that! TeeHee!
Have a lovely weekend Sue.

I'm taking this and running with it. I'm considering a contest if you can identify my dog by random close up body parts - nose, eyes, ears & feet. Although the eyes might give it away.

I love your dogs and I couldn't identify any of them by their feet! I got the ok to go buy a new sewing machine yesterday. I'll be at the store when they open this morning. I'm so excited I can barely breathe! My machine has been giving my trouble for years. of course I'm replacing it with the same brand newer model! :) Sorry to hijack the comments. g
