Baxter is a Schitzu cross Jack Russell Terrier and loves to chase things.
This is Daisy, a plush toy cow that he is chasing, but there is a dip from the deck to the concrete back drive, so as he incessantly nags for Daisy to be thrown, I have been practising catching leaping action shots.
I think they came up pretty good. I think he has a character that comes through in the pictures.
What do you think?
I’ve managed to convince myself that each one is funnier than the last, something about the expression of movement.
Or the ridiculous look of a dog carrying a plush cow that looks like it is from 1942.
I like the distinction we are seeing between shutter speed and actual launch. Sometimes he achieves a much flatter body full length stretch, yet in other shots the launch is just starting, not quite anti-gravity…
Like this next one… floating through space and time…
Or this mid launch self propelled rocketdogbulldozer.
Gotta love the Baxter. He’s got the smarts.
