I very well might be biased, but I happen to think that Electra is, without a doubt, the best dog out there. She’s got the sweetest (and and downright mopiest) face you’ll ever see. Yeah, she’s a bit of a food whore, and she tends to be a bed hog, but she’s also adorable and loving and so very patient.

She puts up with a lot, our droopy faced hound. She puts up with Steven when he twists her ears up to the Princess Leia-style buns, or ties them in a loose knot on the top of her head. She puts up with Cadence grabbing handfuls of her loose skin to stand up and taunting her with food. And she puts up with being my  model whenever I decide I want to test something out with my camera.

Bribe her with a cookie, and she’ll pose as long as I want.

Just today, I had her sit for a few shots in front of the patio door while I tested out my new zoom lens. I wanted to make sure the focus was accurate before I headed out for my photo shoot, and after a few requests to sit and a promise of treats, Electra was happy to oblige.

I have to say, I love this lens, though not nearly as much as I love my dog.

Tonight’s 365 Project entry is dedicated to my dear Electra. Call me psychic, but I see a long modeling career in her future.

    1. Haha! Thanks George! She is a fine-looking girl if I do say so myself! And yeah, she will sit for photos–partly because she’s so lady, and party because she is easily bribed when there are peanut butter dog cookies involved. 🙂
