Yesterday Bernie and Leslie went off to their forever homes. Amy is still waiting for that perfect match. I couldn’t resist the one last opportunity to take pictures of them all together. They’ve really started to play more with toys together instead of just wrestling.
Leonard and Penny came for a quick visit before they all got picked up. It was pretty cute to see how quickly they got into the groove and started playing together although most of my play pictures of them didn’t look that great so instead you mainly get “dogs standing still”. LOL Aren’t they gorgeous? Penny was a tiny little thing and Leonard had such a nice wide head.
Leonard and Penny could do stairs up AND down. Ours were still struggling with the down part. Poor Bernie ran upstairs to “protect” a toy she’d been playing with and then got stuck up there. LOL
I’m really going to miss them but I know they’ll be happy and loved.

If you have to make your way past "falling ice" signs in April, at least they should make you smile. The one in back, not as distinctly, warns of falling lice.
There are at least two dozen photos of "caution, falling mice" signs on Flickr, but I figure my mom hasn’t seen one before. Hi, Mom!
My favorite flickr photo you find when you search for "falling mice" is this one.

This is little Trudy, a French bulldog, I met at the veterinary surgery one day. Like many Frenchies she seems to have a permanently worried expression but in fact she was probably thinking about going in to see the vet! Trudy is 3 years old and lives in Monaco. Such an adorable breed. They are all clowns!

I’m starting to use Photoshop more and more. Don’t get me wrong, I still like Lightroom, but even with it’s new cloning/healing tool, it still doesn’t hold a candle to Photoshop’s and I often want to get rid of something in my photos. Lately it’s been the staining under the puppies’ eyes and Photoshop does a much better job. It’s a pain to transfer them in there, but worth it in the end.
I’m also finding I need to use it for my 52 Weeks challenges and am slowly learning more and more “tricks” each week. This week’s challenge was symmetry so I ended up cloning Coulee and flipping her around to create a more symmetrical image. I chose not to make the background symmetrical as I found it too distracting. I wanted it to look a little more “realistic”… that she’d actually found her doppelgänger and was having a game of tug with her.
I thought her play bowing to herself was also cute. She’s actually bowing to Marlin who helped me out with the tug.
This was a cool little wall that had this half circle repeating along it, that I photographed as a backup plan, (I didn’t know if I would be able to get the tugging thing to work) but decided I liked the closer view better.
