Somehow, this Sunday, I managed to take about 80% of photos where my dogs looked ugly. They looked fat, they were pulling faces, they were blurry… In all, it was quite spectacular photo-taking. I also managed to capture some monster leaps from Lu, but also some jumps with her back legs stretched out.
On that thought, I wonder if it’s the Aussie-shep jumping style that makes them tuck their legs up as they clear the bar and that it’s not necessarily something I should concern myself with. Mal tucks his legs up as he clears the jump and he rarely knocks bars. So… monster leaps = no, tucking legs up= meh, why not.
Also, further to my whingy “I’m sick and everything sucks” post from the other day, what I thought was ‘sandfly bites’ may actually be hives given the fact that I haven’t been to the sand in a week and I seem to be getting new bumps in new places daily. HURRAH, so that’s something new.
Enjoy the gallery of my dogs jumping logs (jeez that’s a bad time to have the j and the h button next to each other…) and pulling horrible faces.
New free running forest!
RASPBERRIES TO THE FACE FOR INCREASED INTENSE PLAYING.
A happy (playful) puppy with a stick.
Lumen jumps logs the cheater way.
So many ears.
Look at her magestic beauty.
Such intensity in the eyes…
Yes Silvia, I swear I keep my dog thin and in good physical condition.
My dog is so attractive. That’s why I entered her in a dog show once.
Such a weird face…

Hey! How’d you get up there!?
Probably would have been one of my favourite photos…
Artistic photo of the side of her head and a blurry tree.
The new reservoir we found.
New forest trails! New reservoirs! New places to run!
A new forest to explore!!!
I realised I was a bit close for good photos after this one…
Ok, Lu, your jump here is a little overkill. Like… it’s smaller than that. Much.
Magical hovertating/gravitating dog.
A streamlined face.
HOVERTATING DOG AGAIN MAGICAL POWERS…
A rare nice-looking photo.
Oh, you freak.
Lumen’s brown is tree-coloured
There was some full on dogmestic violence, too. (In fact Lu had tugged and ‘won’ the stick off Nic. Just a shame she looks like she’s being beaten into submission there…)
Mal managed to escape too many ugly photos today because I was busy being captivated by Lu’s beauty (or lack thereof) to take a lot of photos of him. This one is pretty quality though.
An actually nice photo!!!
I think my girl just likes to jump. Randomly.
See, she can jump normally. Sometimes.
Some nice looking dogs, waiting for Nic to tell them to go.
Dogs in unison part 1!
Dogs in unison part 2! Look at their cute little same legs.
Dogs… not so in unison. I find this one really interesting as my analytical brain over analyses it and says things like: ooo, look how much Lu looks like she’s concentrating to jump, and see how her shoulders are rounded? Is that good or bad, and look at Mal, he’s an experienced jumper so maybe she should look like him?!

I bet this would have been a fantastic shot of Lumen jumping something…
