SHAKE SHAKE SHAKE


We are back on the beach absorbed in my favourite sport!
Jim is an expert thrower
I have no complaints at all.


So let's get some SHAKING on between rounds!
(in this case rainbow shaking)


Let's try it again!
Notice how fast I am, 
I'm ahead of the ball.


SHAKING 
with some
 'focal zoom' 
always makes me dizzy.


Tireless ~~~ energetic, vigorous and determined
that suits me to a T.


I'm all wound up and ready,
  to DANCE!
There's one more way to
 SHAKE SHAKE SHAKE!

Let's SHAKE  your booty!!


^ GOTCHA ^

  1. We always get right near the humans--really close--and shake. They love that.

  4. I went through the entire post singing "Shake shake shake shake shake Shake your booty Shake your booty" and then you go and finish with "That's the Way I Like It"! Gotcha indeed...

    Love the shots of Sophie shaking her booty. So much better than KC's one and only dance move (although I used to double-bump to this one at the Highbridge Disco in Brockport, NY)...

    1. Too funny, Mitch!!

      Sophie was shaking and saw a rainbow around her. So I not wanting to miss that photo again I had Jim help by throwing the ball over and over again so she would shake. When I decided to use this as the focal point I just titled it SHAKE, then it just started SHAKE SHAKE SHAKE ~~~ bam the song, the 70's, The Limelight Disco in Montreal, P Q ~~~ so much fun. You in Brockport not far from us. Small world eh!

  8. My mom is a terrible thrower. I tell her to use the throwing stick. My dad is a good thrower.

    Your Pals,

  10. Oh, I love focal zoom! That is so much fun.

    And what a great choice of music. I love listening to the music of this band. Makes me want to get up and boogie! I will eventually make it to your area and we will go dancing!

  11. Hi Y'all!

    I love your rainbow shake!!!

    My Human makes me sit at heel until she releases me "after" the throw. I'd love to go as soon as she throws...but then her throws don't go very far either.

    Y'all come by now,
    Hawk aka BrownDog

    1. What a good dog you are Hawk, my Dads haven't taught me the "sit at heel" pose yet for this beach stuff. I might be too old for it now!

      We used to use a "Chuckit" thrower but Ron put his arm out with this thing and said "No more, thank you very much". Now we just throw underhand because the over hand muscles get so sore ~~ old age thingie I guess!

      Cheers!

  12. Great action shots of you, Sophie Doodle. Did you know that neither Soldier nor Samson have the slightest idea what to do with a ball? I've got some silly dogs, don't I?

    1. Sophie is sitting beside me, right now licking my left hand and said she would love to teach Soldier & Samson anytime you think they would be ready. She loves the ball time the most in life. We use it for control purposes sometimes too. It works everytime. HAPPY !!

  13. I think that I say this every time... but your photos are awesome! I love that first one, and I love the special effect of focal zoom on Sophie's shake. Wow!

    1. So kind of you, KB ~~~ Sophie is placing her paw on mt arm as I key this in ~~~ I think she is saying HI in her DOODLE channeling way !!

      The beach really explodes with photo opportunites every time we visit:

      The reflection on wet sand

      Clear Vs Cloudy Skies

      Wave Action

      People Walking/ Surfing

      Usually these are the norm but it's the variation that always intrigues us!! Of course, since I am not a prof photographer I tweak a bit here and there until I see what I like and then share it. Dogital, opps (Freudian slip there) Digital Photographer has changed the world and I am along for the ride!

      CHEERS!!
