Beautiful Beggar



We took Annie, our sweet yellow Labrador, to a little league baseball game this evening.


She whined the entire game, wanting to be on the field with the boys.





She's not used to being outside for long periods of time...




But, she suddenly spied my husband eating a hot dog...

and she went into total BEGGAR MODE.




She sits up straight and tall.
And focuses all her attention on the person with the food.

It's intense.





My 12 yr old Donny took these last two photos.



I was looking through the ones he snapped, and then I saw this one!

I LOVE it.







Camera Critters is SO much fun! join us!

Dogs are cool. Life would be a little dull without them. Great pictures.

They're never more devoted than when we're sad or when we're eating! Great shots!

Dangit, would you and Pioneer Woman please quit posting photos of your adorable dogs? I mean, sheesh, you're making me want to get a dog. Stop it.

BTW, she is gorgeous! I'm just jealous of you.

AWE! I can understand why he wanted to be out in the field. Luckily he was distracted by that hotdog. ;-)

Carla said...

Awwwww ..... I so love your Annie. I'm a real sucker when it comes to Golden Labs :-)

She certainly does look intense in the 'begging' photos. Isn't it funny how they get so focused. One of ours actually strts to shiver. :-)

Oskar said...

It does seem a bit unfair that Annie was not allowed to play with the boys.

Also, she's not begging. It's part of our doggie duty to keep our people from overeating, so we try to standby in case you need our assistance.

Oh she is so pretty. Reminds me of my Sydney. She is the SAME way!

John Deere Mom said...

Donny did great on those pics! The last one is so cute!

Justine/Justiney/Tiney said...

OMG, wtg Donny! that last picture is perfect! The sun on her face, the tongue hanging out. It's just perfect. FRAME IT!

Justine :o )

Misty Dawn said...

Oh man Rhea, I TOTALLY LOVE that last photo too! That's fantastic, Donny! Absolutely AWESOME!

As far as the begging, my boy (Tag) was doing that today... he was getting rewarded, because the girls didn't come when called and he did... so, he was getting potato chips. You should have seen the straight back, perky ears, twitching nose... I'm sure you know what it's like. Then he ended up wit his head in the bag, scooting it across the floor, it was pretty funny if I do say so myself.

Blissful Babe said...

That Annie. She is soooo stinking cute! I just want to eat her up. But then I would have dog breath. Literally.

DysFUNctional Mom said...

OMGosh, love that last one too. My sweet Suzie begs the same way. She's politely silent but she somehow still manages to catch your attention.

Mama Dawg said...

Awesome pics!

Jennifer said...

Annie is a very cute and pretty dog, who could say no to that face!
