More Morning Entries

We recently showed you photos of the dogs entering the yard first thing in the morning and thought we would do more morning entries.

A couple of weeks ago, we did an Entering Monday Morning post where Hu-Dad captured the first paw touch of the morning in the dog yard. Based on the feedback, we thought we would do it again but capture the steps themselves.

These little moments do such a good job of capturing the dog’s personalities, from Frankie’s serious and steady approach to Typhoon’s grumbles to Roscoe’s focus.

Which, of course, brings us to Boom Boom, who doesn’t walk down the steps. He races down them.

    Living in Indianapolis, this time
    of year is usually Indy 500. This year we have Boom. You can’t turn your head fast enough, and only the gifted with shutter speed capture anything but a blur. Love the different approaches, and the capturing of it all. My 2 have different approaches. One barely touches the stairs, the other leisurely stretches and “mosies”. ????

    It’s so funny the way they have different morning personalities! It reminds me of one who cannot WAIT for his morning coffee and the other has get up and go without the caffeine!!

    I love all the personal stair steps style!

    Hu Dad… I have a silly question.
    how do we go back and look at the very last post?
    I mean I like the options below of the various past posts and often use it.
    but just to go to the last post? am I missing how to do it somehow?
    not being a smarty pants here. it’s just my new NORM! LOLOL.

      Welcome to the #1 most requested feature. When I switched themes, I didn’t even think about it, but we lost it. Waiting on a solution from the programmers. Hopefully soon.

        LOL! so… I’m not just getting old and senile!
        THANKS so much Hu Dad. xoxo

    I like how you can read the different personalities in each face. Boom Boom blur is the best.
