Rainy winter days are perfect for indoor activities, like taking pictures. Actually, I was just feeling lazy and wanted to get some shots of these little bums who kept following me around the house.
We made it through Thanksgiving, Black Friday and have landed on Cyber-Monday. These are all national holidays, right?
I celebrated Black Friday by taking advantage of an instant rebate offered by Nikon and got myself a new camera and a wide-angle lens. I’m excited about my new gear, and you will all be seeing more pictures of Kona’s handsome face as well as his feline brothers as well.
This wide-angle lens, a Nikon 16-35mm, allows me to see the bigger picture. An ordinary portrait becomes more of a story, like an environmental portrait, allowing for more creativity.
I’m finishing up my Fall semester and am REALLY looking forward to some time off to play with my new equipment and start getting more posts (and pictures) up on the blog.
Hope you all had a great holiday week, and a very happy Monday to everyone!
Woofs and wags,

Scout showing off one of his unique kitten talents…we call it making biscuits.
I’m not sure why cats need to knead, but my cats have the additional habit of drooling while they knead. Scout lets loose a drop of drool towards the end of this video.
This photo was originally very dark, with only the highlights showing on Kona’s face. As I lightened the shadows in Photoshop, something began to appear in the background. It looks like Kona is sharing the limelight once again.
Pumpkin and Scout seem to show up everywhere Kona is. If he moves to the living room, they follow. Same with the bedroom – within a few minutes, there they are. Can’t a dog get a little privacy around here?
Scout tries to give Kona head-bumps and tries to cuddle with him. He used to get annoyed and walk away, but it’s useless. They just follow him.
These days, he just closes his eyes, accepts the fact that he’s sharing space, and goes to sleep.
Cheers to being popular 😊

Happy Labor Day!
Maybe every Monday should declared a holiday, what do you think? We’ll make it a world-wide day off to include everyone outside of the U.S. as well.
The Mister is working on his boat today, so Kona and I decided to do some dog-shopping. I’ve been promising Kona a new toy for a while now, since his favorite old squeaky bone has seen better days.This old bone is special because Kona got to pick it out. It was once covered with bright yellow tennis ball felt, but he tore the skin off and ate it.
We made our way to the local pet supply store, and as soon as we walked in, the man at the counter handed Kona a snack. Instant friends.
There were so many toys! Kona headed straight over to the Kong toys, and sniffed out his favorite giant squeaky bone. We moved over to the snack area next, where he licked some of the tasty treats on my way down the aisle.For now, until he drops it into something disgusting, this Kona’s inside toy.
What kind of dog toys do your pups like to play with? Do you have a favorite that you keep going back to again and again?
