Colour Basics Part 2 and Charlie!

Hi All, before I get around to Part 2 of the Colour Basic Papers some news on Charlie's progress.

He and I have been training...he is doing a wonderful job...at training me!! I just think I am getting somewhere then he just puts me back in my place..the cheek!! He's still rushing around, he wouldn't even stop for the camera. I tried and tried to get some decent photographs of him bit I ended up with just bits...a front, but without the head...a rear..the middle. All I wanted was a complete dog!!!

See what I mean!! This one was of his rear..nice tail, but not quite what I was aiming for.

I try ignoring him when he's hyper in the kitchen..the theory being he will calm down and go lie down in his bed. It normally ends up with me pointing at his bed and firmly shouting "BED"!!!! He will not do what the book says..he started well but his anxiety is showing.

Leaving him is a nightmare...he hates being left on his own. I don't just mean when I go out...this dog hates you going into the next room without him!!! I do leave him on his own as his "help" with the chores is not very constructive..if you get my drift. Plus I need to go to bed...I have to admit he is much better at night than he was.

I did finally get a photograph of  his head..yes all of it!!! It's not the best picture I have to admit, it was dark and he was very, very wet!!! I know, I was this wet too! He makes photographing active kids look like a cake walk...this dog is so fast, I just keep missing him as he zooms past me. Here he's looking as if to say " What is she doing now?" He thinks I am very strange...cute but strange. Mind you so do a lot of people...not the cute but the strange, lol!!

OK, now for the the Colour Basics. I have been doing some more work on sorting out all the elements that I made to go with these papers and again I will have to sort them into three downloads.....so watch this space for them after the papers!!

LOL...loving your adventures with Charlie! You should put together a page of all the assorted 'doggie parts' you have shots of, and then just as an afterthought, his head!
He sure is a cutie...even if I am a dyed in the wool cat person, I do like me some goggies...just 'some' mind you, lol. Thanks so much for your paper packs, they make layering easy.

Aw Charlie is sooo cute and he has a nice tail too , LOL. I think dogs are like kids and know when we want to take their pics. They won't stay still, they don't listen, even with treats. LOL, although one of my dogs likes to pose for pics, LOL. For real!! Thanks for sharing, they're great pics. Oh, and thanks for part 2 of the papers. Hugs -- xoxo! (terri - hawaii)

Charlie sounds much like my Pepper!! The papers are so pretty.

Glynis said...

Oh how can you get mad at that face?!
Lovely papers lovely story, thanks

Youvegotmaille said...

LOL.. that is a very handsome tail!

I don't know if this is an option for you, but Rascal's severe separation anxiety was greatly eased when I got a second dog. Borrow someone's friendly dog and see if it works for Charlie :)

Best of luck with him, he's a cutie!

Charlie is a cutie for sure! Glad you managed to get a picture of that cute lil face, even if it was wet! Sounds like you are making some progress, if he's doing better at night now! That's something at least. I'm enjoying your newest download... thanks for all you do!
