My Handsome Lad!

Handsome, and doesn't he know it?? Certainly not afraid to pose for the camera! We were practicing "paws up", a pretty self explanatory trick really, I taught it him ages ago and it is always useful when I'm taking photos! All I have to do is point at the tree/ fence/ chair or anything else we happen to come across and say "paws up" and Barney will stand like he is here, for me take photos.

 

I've said it before, but photography is good for him, he's learned a lot of self control and discipline over the past year, simply by holding still for photos. He has to stay very still too, because in low light my camera is awful, any movement and things are just a blur! Barney is like a living statue when I say "stop"! It also keeps our walks interesting, our photography sessions are basically just training sessions for him... and he loves to learn! Keeps him out of trouble too...
