City dog, country dog and possible treats

- After about ten tries, finally getting a photo of Janet's dog Emily, a lively visitor to the gym.

- Smiling at an overheard conversation as my sister puts the phone down long enough to ask her husband to pick her up at the front door in the golf cart. They ride through their property so their dog Moby can run free. He could run like that any time he wants, but chooses the excitement of running amok while they ride along in his wake.

- A lengthy discussion about possible edible treats to take printing customers, bakery cookies, home-baked cookies, fruit or wrapped candy. All good things. Decisions, decisions.

What I love about the dog shot, Lynn - is the sign in the background - "Where others see problems we can see possibilities" - how fitting! Where some could have given up on getting a picture of "Mr. Lively", you saw the possibility and got a great shot because of it!!

Lance -

It is the reason I go to that particular place, because of the positivity. Janet never gives up on trying to get me and others to work out harder. But I also like the socializing factor. :)

Yes - the other shots were funny - I almost posted them. Mostly they were showing spaces just vacated by Emily.

Lynn, Emily is a cutie! I'm glad you persevered and got the shot! She looks like she's awaiting judging at a dog show.

I love dogs and their particular quirks. I can see Moby having a blast dashing from side to side.

Now picking out which sort of sweet treats is my kind of decision making! :)

Talon -

She had just spotted something outside the front door, so I managed to snap her photo.

Moby can run like a deer! He is a Weimaraner and completely devoted to my brother-in-law. I finally got to use the word amok!

I'm leaning toward wrapped candy. I am a good cook, but not a good baker in particular. I once made a sheet cake fall!

Mama Zen -

Emily does look a lot like Benji! Love those Benji movies...

Food decisions are sometimes the best to have to make.

Remember the sugar free stuff, as well as the sugar stuff, too.

Lynn said...

Excellent point, G! Dietary restrictions did come up. That happens all the time when vendors bring food in to our place of business.

Cute doggy- There was a bad news story about a gym today-
Almost as good as chasing a car, being chased by one...

In my state, we need a license from town hall to give away food, so they can find you, fine you, if anyone gets ill on the food you serve! Food prewrapped, previously prepared by others doesn't count-

Snaggle -

I saw that story - very scary and sad.

Hey - thanks for the info on the food thing. Good point.
