One up, one down

It takes border collie's ears a while to set. A week ago both her ears were down, but now... we are at one up, one down. I keep telling her to keep her ears down, but it doesn't seem to work. She just shook her head and the other ear started to pop up a bit. I think this is a losing battle.

So I finally broke out my nice SLR and decided to take some good pics of her, not just point-and-shoot. I think some turned out pretty cute. Julie Mulkay, a former SLO- first warder and buddy photo major whom's logo I designed, inspired me with her last blog entry to take some more artistic photos with Portland. Not that I'm some professional photographer, but I did have to take 3 photography classes, so I'm practically there. j/k.

This one's for you Julie!

Portland is stalking her stuffed duck, which she still loves.

On May 2nd I, like thousands of other Twilight fans, I purchased the last book in the Twilight series, Breaking Dawn. And I finished it on May 4th. All I am going to say is that it went: like, like, WHAT!, ug-annoyed, annoyed, okay, okay, what?!, WHAT!, back to like, umm... and I won't spoil the end. But at least this book has an ending unlike alll the others.

This is a pic of me on Sunday, taking a nap with Portland. Yes I know, we totaly, utterly caved on the "no dog on the bed" rule. She is not allowed at night, that is my new rule.

Check out more photos in my web album!
