Yesterday was 4 weeks since I had my foot operation and I was pretty excited to talk to the Doc. Originally, the estimate for recuperation was 4 to 6 weeks. So… 4 weeks arrived (finally) and I won't say the prognosis was bad, it wasn't, it just wasn't great. He said "Looks Good. Keep doing the same." Argggghhhh.
So, I sulked a round a little on my peg leg feeling sorry for myself. Allen's been around me constantly for the last 4 weeks, so he's used to pouty Aliy. But my friend Barb, who came to the kennel to help out for a few days, wasn't quite used to new and not so improved attitude. She even started to keep a tally of "Aliy's rudes". The last I remembered, I was up to #21. Oops.
Barb also brought a Selfie Stick for a camera phone. She is quite the photographer and thought this angle of the dogs might be fun. Well… who better to have FUN than 'happy-go-lucky' me? So, I was send out to peg leg around the yard, with a supervisor, to take selfies with any and all accommodating dogs. Let me say first, that despite the all 'Aliy Cam Videos' and photo shoots I've been involved with, I am not familiar with a Selfie Stick. It took some practice. As I hobbled through the dogs, some of them were now both wary of my peg leg and the 3 foot long stick that I held over my head. "What the… ?" So here are some of the results:
These guys all wanted to HELP take photos:
Mismo adjusts the photo layout; Tinder reaches for the shutter speed.
These guys all wanted to GROOM me for the Photo Shoot. (Is that a hint?)
Nomex washes my face.; Mac feels the need to look me over closely.
Mismo adjusts my smile; Tinder thought my hat was loop-sided.
These guys were NOT interested:
Chemo wouldn't give me the time of day, Kodiak only gave me a smile when a raven flew overhead.
Izzy would rather have bum scratch (Rambler approves); Felix just wants to dance.
We did have some success:
Chevie is a lover; Ginger wants some TLC.
