Teaching the Dog about Selfies..whilst waiting for The Man….

Today I had to wait for the man while he had some physio treatment on his knee.  It was a beautiful day and I got back to the surgery a little early so decided to sit on the step in the sun. It was too hot to wait in the car. (25 deg probably…sigh).

Anywaysup…(can’t remember who used to say that, but I like it…) Got a bit bored hanging around so thought I try taking a selfie of me and the dog, her name is Jpeg so she should have known exactly what to do.  But, alas no…see below….

This way Jpeg...

No look at the camera!
No look at the camera!
Not behind me look at the lens!
Don’t look behind me look at the camera!
Oh for heavens sake! Don't you want to have your photo taken?
Oh for heavens sake! Don’t you want to have your photo taken?
Right...you've got it but we're BOTH supposed to be in it!

By the way….a man drove past me whilst I was sitting by the side of the road and he waved enthusiastically, I didn’t know him but rather than being miserable I smiled back. About five minutes later he came back, stopped beside me, wound down his window and said in Italian,

‘Is the dog tired? Can I take you somewhere? I think the dog’s feet are tired.’
I smiled and said,

‘No, the dog is fine and so am I, we’re waiting for my HUSBAND!’

I think he was trying to pick me up! Or maybe he had his eye on the dog…she is rather lovely, but a little modest and camera shy.

  1. I think you may have left yourself open to a number of less than kind comments on this subject … not that your real fans would stoop so low but … I do fear for your self esteem!
    By the way the Man says that he is having electro-convulsive therapy – on his knee???
    what are you guys growing out there??

  2. That made me laugh! Great photos. And my dog likes it when I laugh – she takes it as an invitation to put her front paws on my lap and try to get me to stroke her! Sweet, aren’t they?

    1. It made us laugh looking at the photos when we got home! There were actually quite a few more of them – mostly rubbish! She can be a pain in the neck but most of the time she’s a good dog.
