LouLou is a six-year-old cowdoggie. She acts much the same way that Sadie does with us: raises a paw to you while she's lying down; gets up on her hind feet and plants her front feet on your chest (which I don't mind, by the way) while furiously wagging her tail; inserts her head between your legs so you can rub and scratch her neck.
Early in the photo shoot her owner and I decided to separate her three dogs so we could photograph them individually. While one dog (Bailee-Mae) was in the kitchen and the other Greyhound (Tink) was in a bedroom I managed to catch LouLou give me a curious look while I was trying to make some embarrassing noises to attract her attention:
I'm not good at all with being a noise-maker.
Later on we spent some time outside in the backyard. LouLou plopped herself on a couch, and I knelt down to her eye-level with my 70-200mm zoom attached to my D600. Unfortunately, I was at first too close to her and well within the five-foot minimum focusing distance. So I made several attempts of backing-up, trying to focus, then finding out I hadn't backed up far enough. As I was repeating the process I think LouLou was getting a little leery about what exactly I was trying to accomplish. I think this picture shows her suspicion:
Going back into the house to finish up with a few more photos, LouLou climbed up on the ottoman and laid across her owner's lap. The mood of the picture looks a little more serious than how things actually were:
