2012, Day 76 - Frankie Friday

It has been almost three weeks since Frankie came home and in that time he has proven to be a wonderful companion.  He is respectful of the other dogs, walks so well he has graduated from the harness, cleans his bowl most of the time, and sleeps soundly through the night.  My erratic comings and goings no longer upset him, I work from home but leave daily and rarely at the same time two days in a row, but he knows I will be back.  There are only two things we're still working on.  The first is coming when called. He knows his name but often waits to see what the others dogs are doing and if they make no move he hangs back with them.  It's okay, being singled out can be daunting, he will get the hang of it.  Second, he loves his naps a little too much.  There are times I have to carry him outside for a walk.  It doesn't matter if he doesn't have to answer the call of nature, but I want him to participate in the household activities.  Plus, I am sure if I left him at home he would be upset that he wasn't included...

In the photo below I Frankie was napping in his favorite chair.  When I first pressed the shutter release he opened his eyes and this is the second shot.  I really like the smooth bokeh of Sigma's 50/f1.4, it really blows the Canon 50/f1.4 out of the water but it is a much more fiddly lens.  Nevertheless the results make it worth the hassle.
