Welcome to the This ‘N That Thursday blog hop!

Many thanks to my co-host Ruckus the Eskie.

Winner, Winner

Last month Flea at the Jones Natural Chews Blog ran a contest for a copy of Jackie Bouchard’s  new book titled Rescue Me, Maybe and I won!

Flea was kind enough to include some of Jones Natural Chews jerky and chicken taffy for the dogs.  OK so I had to bribe Freighter with some jerky so he would sit with the book.

Give, Give, Give
Give, Give, Give

I received the book just before we left for vacation so i packed it along.  We had such beautiful weather, I never even had a chance to open it, but I look forward to reading it.

Thank you Flea for the book and treats!

Mr. Moon

While we were at the cabin I took a couple of pictures of the moon that I though came out kind of neat.  I used a tripod to get a nice clean picture and made a couple of adjustments to get two different effects.

  1. I love all the pix, but I must admit that my favorite is the second one of the moon. I often look up at the moon when I take the dogs out for their bedtime potty break; and I love when I can see the shadow of moon in its own light.

  2. The pictures are lovely. Both dogs are perfect models. A little bribery never hurts. Thanks for sharing with us.

  3. WOW, this definitely was a lot of this & that! I loved all the photographs and the moon pic too! I used to bird watch from the kitchen window with my parents growing up and I always loved that! I can’t believe you have wild turkey just walking around over there! The strangest thing for us that we have found in our backyard was a possum. Give your doggies a hug from all of us!

  4. Hi Y’all!

    Congratulations on your win!!! Love the bird picks!

    Y’all come by now,
    Hawk aka BrownDog

  5. The birds came out nice but love those moon shots! Congrats on winning the book and a few treats! Thanks for hosting the blog hop 🙂

  6. Love love love the moon photos. I really love the second one. I just love moons and one day will add one to my tattoo collection. You got some really cool bird pics also. Congeats on winning jackys book. On my list to get.

  7. Awesome pictures! My dogs love the jerky too!! And let me tell you, I loved Jackie’s book, it caught me right from the beginning!!

    I love the photos of the moon, I’m taking it that you went with the nicer camera for those shots? Funny I was playing with my new camera this morning and have some fun shots that I will share tomorrow.

    Thanks for co-hosting tomorrow too, I love having you co-host.

    1. Yeah, i used my dslr with the zoom and a tripod which really helped. I could not have taken that second picture just holding the camera. It was a very slow shutter speed.

  8. LOLOLOL!!! That’s not the book I sent you, but it’s very good. 🙂 I liked both of Jackie’s books!

    LOVE the moon photos! And the bird photos!

  9. Love the pictures! Those moon photos are beyond amazing! I really need to learn how to use my camera so I can take some neat pictures. How did you learn…just playing around with the camera, online tutorials, an actual class?

  10. AWESOME photos….all of them!!
    I bet the dogs were happy that some Jones Natural Chews came along with that book. You will love the book when you get to it, I just wrote a review on it today.

  11. Freighter says – I’ll rather pose with treats, thank you 😛
    Love both moon effects and the study of the woodpeckers is really cool ^__^

  12. You are getting some great photos these days…I absolutely love the one with the moon and the clouds…That’s a keeper! Congrats on winning the book…Gizmo will do just about anything for some of that Tender Taffy

  13. Congrats on your prize! Nice photos too. I’m envious of your new camera. There is no way mine will let me take photos of the moon like that.

  14. Congrats on winning the book and Freighter seems to approve of the new treats too. 🙂
    Love all the pics. We get a few woodpeckers here, and I enjoy watching them. Easier to pick out than some of the other birds too, thanks to their carrot tops. 🙂
