He's only been here a week, but it is clear that Zippy is settling in to life in our home. He even puts up with my obnoxious phototaking.

Today I'm packing up the majority of our Stuff for transit, today and tomorrow, to the new house. Zippy is making sure that I'm doing it right.

 

His ears were back, in usual seal-dog mode, so I made some weird noises to try to get the ears at attention. All I got was one.

Zippy isn't used to dSLRs yet, so he blinks his eyes every time the shutter snaps. It's kind of funny really, since he'll look totally noble and alert, and then, *snapblink* he looks like he's sleeping. We've had to come up with schemes...

Zip didn't want to leave, but even as I type this he is passed-out in his bed. He had a big day and can't wait till the next Eastside meetup.

He does an amazing thing where he sits upright after a big play session and tries to stay awake. But his eyes keep getting more and more droopy until his head drops. Then he snaps back awake, throwing his head back and looking around, wild-eyed (like it was our fault, or something...). Eventually he gives up, circles around a little, and flops.

I've recently downloaded an iPhone app called "CameraBag", where I can take and transform images right in my iPhone. The app has several different presets to choose from, as detailed here.

Zippy loves sunny days, laying on the back porch, feeling the sun on his face.

This is the first part of Zippy's morning routine, wriggling around on his back, begging for attention.

A rare shot of Zippy's tongue (not a rare sight at all, just sorta rare to catch it in a photo).

Playing around with my new Canon 430EX II flash, and seeing how bouncing the light in different directions changes things.

Zippy looks slightly annoyed that I'm taking his picture, but he also has the bed entirely to himself, so he'll be ok.

On the ride home aftergraduation - it was hot outside.

Zippy gets the zombie eyes when he sleeps. Here he is cuddling with Erik.

Zippy loves to come sit on my lap while I'm at the computer.

Classic Zippy begging face: wide, sincere eyes; perfectly still; slightly pouty lip.

Tuckered out.

 

I feel you, dude.

Zippy and Julie peer out the window at the crazy hail.

This is Zippy's Report Card from his first day at training camp!

As you can see, Zippy has nothing but respect for his human masters.

Zip gets very still when he is being sniffed by the other Bostons. Either he's patiently enjoying, or completely petrified.

This reminds me of when Gertie dressed up E.T.

He may be 7, but Zippy has quite a spark when it comes to cuddling, as you can see.

A classic Boston Terrier expression.

We learned to snap our fingers or make a weird noises while shooting him. That way he blinks before the shutter snaps.

This cat starting meowing right outside our bedroom window at about 11:30pm one Thursday night. Loudly. We thought the sight of Zippy would make the cat scurry away, but it made it just want to play all the more.

 

Unfortunately, Zippy is a bit afraid of cats, and was up most the night listening for it.

Zippy, with way more gravitas than he really has.

Even with a cat in sight, Zippy was still the perfect gentleman in Julie's arms. So when can we go take him home...?

Zip needed a few minutes of "time out", but it's clear that he wanted to get back into the action

Can you resist that face? CAN YOU?!?!

Blast from the past: I was working from home, and Zippy had to be there right next to me. And of course, snoring ensued.

 

It's nice that I can kinda watch this now without totally bawling my eyes out.... okay, so there's a LITTLE bit of bawling.

Zippy didn't waste a moment before leaping onto the laundry pile and fluffing it up into a comfy bed.

The combination of bright sun and a lens in his face was too much for ol' Zippy. As you can see, he became quite grumpy.

A "special" moment between the boys.

Zippy panting after his graduation from Riverdog - jaunty kerchief and all!

That's how I get looking at this photo.
