Collett Park in Winter

A beautiful view out my front window, looking at Collett Park:

A beautiful day, to boot!

Even Nap Time is Toy Time

There was a long series of shots just like this one:

This is a toy Choppy got for Christmas (it was a hedgehog wearing a hat). She appears to have fallen asleep with it right next to her.

A Gray Day for Being Bad

Today was a gray day in the park:

And Choppy spent more time being a bad dog on the couch:

Under the Table

A favorite dog location - under the table. Probably because of its proximity to food.

She's looking at my sister here.

Headed Home

While she was following my dad up to get the mail (or on her way back from getting the mail), as seen yesterday, Choppy took this picture:

She appears to be on my parents' long driveway, looking back at their house.

Bad Dog!

This morning while I was at work, Choppy did something bad.

It started out innocently enough. Choppy looked at the couch:

Things quickly went badly, though, as Choppy got on the living room couch - where she is not allowed:

Then she settled in, looking toward the fireplace:

Eventually, she got off of the couch, but this afternoon, she went back for more. This time, she chose to look at the Christmas tree:

The Nose

I have no idea how she did it, but Choppy managed to take a picture of her nose:

It appears she is just a talented photographer.

Mail Time!

Choppy went outside with my dad to go get the mail:

A Monday in the Life of Choppy

I have now answered the question of what my dog does all day while I am gone. It appears that, for the most part, she sleeps. So, here's a brief look at what Choppy did all day while I was at work.

First, she looked out the window. This is the window sill:

Then, she went upstairs and slept for the rest of the morning on my bedroom floor until I got home. Here is the armoire, sideways (presumably because Choppy was lying down):

I came home for lunch, and she went outside, where she showed off why one task that needs to be completed next summer is the re-painting of the back door:

The afternoon? More of the same. Choppy headed back to the bedroom for some more sleep - and a picture with mostly nose, and a little bit of bed:

And tonight? Watching me put the television together:

The First Picture

This is the first picture Choppy took that you could tell what it was:

This is my mom cooking on Christmas. Unsurprisingly, the dog's first picture involved food.

Oh, and apologies to my mom, who probably doesn't appreciate that I posted a picture of her backside on the internet.

The Photographer Herself

A picture of the photographer herself:

Choppy took this picture at my parents' house, looking into their kitchen from their deck. You can see her quite well in the reflection - including her camera (the blue and white thing around her neck).
