Hide and Seek

A lot of people don't like to be photographed. During a trip in Northern California earlier this year, I learned that some dogs feel similarly.

Meet Brigitta, or at least her back end.

I won't mention here where Brigitta lives or to whom she belongs to (just in case her cuteness inspires you to dog-knap her). But, I will say that she happens to be the cutest, most lively photo subject I've ever tried to photograph.

During my short visit, I attempted multiple times to photograph her with my digital camera. The minute she saw it appear, Brigitta would disappear.

Finally, I thought I outsmarted her by using my iPhone camera to take her picture. As you can see in today's photograph, I think that she caught on that I wasn't "texting" on my phone and took a dive under my friend's coffee table just as I clicked the shutter button.

Next time, Brigitta. Next time.


  1. Haha! I LOVE the little black dog. I just might try to dog-knap her soon. G beware.

  2. Soak those legs, I mean drumsticks in buttermilk!
