Adventures in dog selfies

Excuse me for a moment while I gush over my dogs.

runningI have this idea. It involves drawing Daisy’s legs. I intended to take a few reference pictures while spending a few days visiting my parents. Do you know how hard it is to take a photo of a walking dog who really only wants to sit in your lap?

This ultimately gave me the idea of taking selfies with Daisy. Wouldn’t it be cute if we were lying side by side? Daisy did not understand this concept. My lying down kept prompting her to set up and investigate my face. The closest I got was her cuddling my head.


Not quite the look I was going for. I guess she is more of a lap dog.


I can’t stop laughing at her face…

Day 2 and I decided that it was only fair to have some selfies with Rory. Unfortunitely, this was a breach of his personal space regulations. He kept getting up and walking away from me. That’s his “leave me alone”signal.

My next strategy was to creep up on him. I would lie down and slowly shuffle towards him, seeing how close I could get.


I got pretty close before Daisy thwarted my plans.


Back to the jealous lapdog. Isn’t she just adorable? (She’s my fur baby so you are required to say “yes”).

Maybe next time I’ll get a selfie with my grumpy old man.
