Snowapalooza 2012 by SilverblueCat Snowapalooza 2012 by SilverblueCat
It's snowing in Seattle... as no doubt you've all heard...

Me and the crew are snowed in, but hey, it's been grand for photos!

From left to right, Caleb, Riley, Temperance, and Simon.

(Caleb, Tempe, and Simon are Cardigan Corgis, Riley is a Pembroke Corgi)

Did you have to dangle a toy or treat to get them ALL to look in your direction?

GORGEOUS! What a great composition and color pallet! My Old English Sheepdog always go slightly yellow against the snow; your Corgis look lovely and white!

This is an amazing shot. Were these trained animals and what were you using as a focus? Job well done!

They're pretty darn good when it comes to photos, they're used to me shooting all the time. Simon (the dog on the far right) is my photo-trained boy, and I put him in all sorts of situations and trust him to know what I want him to do. He's a poser when he sees a camera, (anyone's camera) so, yep, he's pretty well trained. The others aren't bad though. ;)

Yep, I am using a focus, which is a bit of string cheese that I showed them and put on the brim of my hat. ;) Hats make great cheese holders!

That's a great idea! I've seen a cheese ball on a stick used or peanut butter on a spoon, but it's hard to wrangle all that and hold the camera steady.

My dog is a little diva too and used to getting treats when she sees the camera come out. I had to stop taking her to shoots with other dogs because she wouldn't stay out of frame. If the camera is out she wants to be front and center.

Multiple dogs at once have been really hard for me. The biggest group I've done at one time is 5 and I was really lucky because after all day being groomed they just wanted to lay on the doggie bed I set up as a stage and relax.

Aw, they're sitting lined up on a table outside in the yard! But they're pretty good about staying where I plop them when there's a camera involved. ;)

Hey may I ask you since you have both Cardi and Pembroke - how they are diffirent from each others?

Either way, lovely dogs :heart:

Oh gosh... I wrote up a big thing in my journal not too long ago. :D

That should work! They're two entirely different breeds, in all ways. There was a great write up in Canine Photography about the differences too. :D

Those are some GORGEOUS pups!

After reading that only three are Cardigan I looked back up and was happy I could tell which was the Pembroke considering I've met and interacted with a whopping 1 corgi ever :D

SilverblueCat Featured By Owner Jan 19, 2012
Hhahahah!

Yep, he's a random stubby all right. He also has the most sense; he's been inside for the last three days really, toasting his bum in front of the heaters. The rest of them go tearing out, he is like "... are you all insane?"

I laugh. He's such a curmudgeon. ;)

It is funny how different he looks from the other three, isn't it?

AnimeCorgi Featured By Owner Jan 19, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Oh yeah. You can definitely tell the difference. But if you didn't know better you probably wouldn't. My boy friend still can't tell the difference. Or maybe he just likes Cardis more

Shhh. Don't tell anyone.

Actually, they're all pretty good about sitting and staying, but they're on the bench outside the house, which helps!

(Thank you!) :D
