Toby, our handsome wonder dog!

January 4, 2008

It was another cold night here. I was out taking pictures of the ice on the pond, when I happened to get this shot of Toby.

I was really pleased with this shot because I have a hard time getting good pictures of Toby. First off, it’s very difficult to get a good picture of a critter with black fur. It’s hard to see the details without making the rest of the picture too light. I have that problem every time I try to take pictures of Toby or our llama, Keira, as they both are dark. The background in this picture just happened to work out well.

It’s also difficult to catch him standing STILL for a long enough time to bring the camera up, focus and take the picture. He’s constantly on the mooooovvvvvveeeeee, and he usually comes running the minute he sees me look at him.

So there he is, standing still for a change, posing for a picture to show what a big, handsome dog he is!

Toby the Wonder Dog Chasing Ashes

December 26, 2007

The Farmer was burning some old feed sacks and boxes yesterday. Toby loves it when his fellow firebug makes a fire. He thinks it’s great fun to chase and jump for flying bits of ashes.

Every once in a while Toby gets hold of a hot ash, shakes his head for a minute, then goes right back to jumping for more ashes.

I guess everyone has their own idea of what’s fun!
