Smart Dog - March 2012

Here's the second magazine cover I made for...
Daily Dog Challenge - 146. 3/25 "Cover Model for March"

Smart Dogs Magazine - Mar 2012

You haven't seen the first one?
Click here!

 I really wanted make a totally different cover with a different title
but didn't have enough time!
So I just decided to keep the exact same concept as the last one.
Since I'm just using "Windows Paint", it took me rather long 

to make it look like the other one!

Kaiser looks smarter this time, doesn't he?

Spring is Coming

It's still chilly and I wear scarf and gloves
but spring is slowly coming!

The sidewalk is dressed up a bit and cherry blossoms are starting to bloom!

Cherry Blossom on Kaiser

And hey, it was almost 7 pm 
and I could still take photos outside with no flashlight! Lovely!

 Gotta Jump Up High!

Oh do you wonder what Kaiser is doing in this picture?
Well, I put a piece of cookie on the tree 
and Kaiser needed to jump high to get it! 
Can you see where the cookie is??? 
After several tries, he's got it!

My Dinner

OK, dinner pictures again today!

My Bowl...

Does your dog eat from fine china? 
Stainless steel? Something altogether different? 
Show us your dog's bowl today!

We usually have homemade veggie paste in stock 
but yesterday we're running out of it.
So I made Kaiser a special dinner bowl! 
Mmmm it looks like a picture on a dog food package! But it's not everyday!
The white thing you see beside berries is unsalted cottage cheese 
made of microwaved milk and apple cider vinegar.
BTW, Kaiser eats kibble in the morning and raw in the evening. 

OK, waiting time is over. Go ahead!

Yup!  Chicken first!

Kaiser Goes Woo Woo!

Kaiser Goes Woo Woo!

Take a minimalist shot of a dog just being a dog today!

Kaiser is rather quiet as a beagle, 
same as his parents and his siblings. 
So I think it's a genetic thing.
But he can be very vocal once in a while. I love hearing his voice. 
At his dinner time, I always make him excited and he barks for food.
This is the picture of the moment he goes woo woo woo! Usually 3 woos ; )

This is another photo related to food...

Food Face Dinner for Kaiser

 Take a creative picture of your dog's food or treats today!

Yay! Food Face Dinner!
He was crying like a baby when I was taking pictures. 
After I said OK, he turned into a wild animal and crushed the chicken bone!
Yup, he ate chicken first! Then orange ...he loves oranges... and the rest!

Will Work for Love!

Will Work for Love!

Our dogs all have different motivators. 
Show us what your dog works for today!

This is Kaiser's "Attention please!" pose.
He usually does this when I'm not looking at him
but he's at the edge of my eyesight.
He knows I will catch him doing this and cannot resist coming to him.
He might not know this is so damn cute 
but he knows with this magic pose he can win my attention for sure!

He has another cute pose too.
Here're a couple of videos he's trying to get my attention!

Mission Possible

Today's my mission is chewing up this toy!
or in other words...
creating a romantic setting just like the one I saw on TV...

On Mission

This photo was taken for
Daily Dog Challenge - 120. 2/28 "How Can You _____ That Way?"
Our dogs all have quirky habits.
Capture your dog doing something that makes you wonder today!

Mommy says...
"How can you enjoy that way?
It's your own toy and you're destroying it!
And you still feel happy..."

I know Mommy is happy too as long as I chew only my toys!
I'm a good boy and I know the difference!

Mission Completed

Now my mission is completed!
Mommy, I made you a carpet of rose petals!
Do you like it?

Candle Lights

Candle Lights

 Show us your dog with one or more of the four natural elements today
(air, fire, earth and water).
Feel free to be creative and create an element
if time or weather is working against you!

Kaiser might look very calm but he's just waiting for his always!
 By the way, Kaiser's pedigree name picked by the breeder is
"Fifth Element of Brownie Heart JP"!

The Path

Every path I take with you opens up a new world of joy.
You're my littlest best friend.
Thank you for being in my life.

The Path

This photo was taking for...
 Take a photo that you could hang on the wall as art today. 
Play with it however you like!

Well, Kaiser might look serious in this picture.
 Guess what?
He was confident of getting the tiny cookie I was holding besides the camera!

Swag Doggs

Kaiser feat. lil k

Swag Doggs

We all have some sort of dog swag
-- a bumper sticker that says "My Greyhound is smarter than your honor student"
or a stuffed dog that looks like one of or own.
Take a picture of some of your dog swag today!

We really don't collect any beagle items
and this is our first beagle stuffie in 6 years!
Honestly, I was not quite sure about the meaning of the word "swag".
So I did a image search and this is my understanding ; )

Feeling Red

Woofles And Meowz

This photo was taken for...
Daily Dog Challenge - 111. 2/19 "Local Interest"
Take a picture of your dog at a point of local interest near you.
Note that local can be some place that you visit near you,
and that it doesn't have to be a huge monument.
It can be something quirky or fun that's unique to your area.

Granville Island is one of the touristy places here in Vancouver that we can walk to.
It's actually a peninsula and it has artistic shops, restaurants,
a public market, a kids market, a local beer brewery etc.
Among all the attractive small joints,
Kaiser's favorite is this small pet store called "Woofles And Meowz".
They have very fancy handmade treats freshly baked at the store.
When we got there, the store was filled with a sweet aroma of the cranberry cookies which just came out of the oven!
Sure I got a couple for Kaiser for being a cute model!

We have these red pictures too!

It's Monday again, but that doesn't mean you have to suffer from the blues.
Take a picture with your dog that features some red and cheer up!
We're one day closer to the next weekend.

We found this huge red shutter at the fire station in our neighborhood.
The colour was so vivid and gorgeous. It must be newly painted.
Luckily, a fire truck was parked just in front of the building so...

 Fire Truck and Kaiser

we took a picture!
Kaiser will be happy to become a local firehouse dog!
