Luna and I had a little fun with the latest LPTG Theme… the challenge was to include a paper airplane into a shot. When I spotted the Nasa paper I was to use for a plane I knew I had to include Luna, you know with her name being “Luna” and all. I also had a feeling we would be including some of her tricks to carry out these photos. Anyway I will let them speak for themselves.
These first two shots required the use of her “hold” command/trick. As you can see she is not too in love with this trick, but it is a vital part of her bird dog training so I try and work her on it often. Working with her “hold” involving random objects seems to make her like it more, but in the field she simply wants to get back to hunting. But that is another topic for another day. I love her attitude in the shot on the right, so Luna.
Bet you can guess what trick we used here. I tried to get it to balance on her nose but 1. it would not balance and 2. it would obstruct her face too much so I gave up before she lost patience with me. So we opted for balancing it on her head, much easier for all. I really need to work on a “pause” trick with her, basically teach her to “freeze” in whatever position she is in. It would be very handy for pictures.
And a black & white for kicks
Have you and your 4-leggers been working on any new tricks? This is a goal for Luna and I this year, it’s always fun to have new party tricks (if I ever went/threw parties). Also a good thing to do when it is hot as blazes out and nobody including the dogs want to be outside.
