Just look this way please ...

I have a dog. I take him for walks. I always have my phone with me, and very often I try to take pictures of him doing 'doggie' things.

As you can see, most of my efforts are unsuccessful.
My method is clearly to blame. I say his name to get his attention, and invariably he looks up. I have my phone ready on the camera setting, finger poised, click - and of course at that precise moment he turns his head away. Luckily no-one is usually around to witness as I repeat this sequence 2 or 3 times, before (usually) giving up.
So that's why my pictures are mostly blurry, or of his rear end :/

Just occasionally, though, he humours me with something like this :)


  1. What a cutie pie! I have the same problem with my dog... plus he hates having his picture taken (maybe he's shy?) so whenever the camera or phone comes out, he turns his face away and won't look LOL.

    PS - Found you through OnFireTeam, just followed your blog, feel free to follow back!

    1. Lol! My dog definitely isn't shy though - he's very inquisitive and doesn't like staying still. P.S. I'll go and look for you now :)
