Icy and I did manage to get our photo taken yesterday by the professional photographer for charity. It rained so hopefully we won't have to reshoot. Icy was such a ham! Seriously, focused on posing. Would get up and literally pose! I was so jealous! Dodges my camera but the minute someone else takes a camera out....BAM. Mr Ham!

Icy is edgy about other dogs again. Mostly telling them to go away. No pulling or aggression. He had to have his neg muzzle on to get to the garden where we met the photographer. On the way home a man with a boxer came out of a doorway. He had his muzzle on but started seeing red. I used the noise I use in the house when someone is bad and that got his attention. I kept walking and making that noise and saying no and after maybe 4 times of it he turned on walked with me on our way. This was a break-through for us. So I have hopes to put this behind us. But I'm not surprised that the dog is worried! He just needs to relearn that most dogs are not interested in us.

Oh she was so nice! She didn't even have to try to get my attention with toys or treats. :) I knew I looked good, so why not pose?
