Odin's not camera shy

I came home at lunch time to let Odin out. After he did his business, we played ball out in the yard for about 15 minutes, and he got some serious running in... I bet he napped the rest of the afternoon while I was at work. He's growing like a weed... He was a little over 17 lbs. when we went to the vet, We have to go back for more vaccinations in early June, it will be interesting to see how much he's gained. I've gotten some really cute photos of him with my cell phone. He doesn't mind having his picture taken, but he's not easy to photograph... but once in a while I get lucky.

Silly Puppy!

Matthew was away for a couple days, so I had to run home at lunch time to let Odin out. It was a sunny day yesterday, and he wanted to roll in the grass and was sticking his tongue out... so I had to take some photos! He is such a silly puppy! We just love him.... He had his first visit with the Veterinarian this past week... she doesn't think he is the breeds they told us he was, she doesn't think he is going to be a big dog... maybe a couple pounds bigger than he is now. That's ok... he might be little, but he has a big bark! I can tell he is feeling better. He has been a bundle of energy (except when he is sleeping)... and has started to play bite and rough house a little bit... I've had to calm him down a few times. I got him a toy that I can put a little peanut butter into which keeps him occupied when we are eating dinner... but I haven't found a toy that he can chew on that he can't rip apart yet... he needs something... I'll have to keep looking.

Welcome Odin

Jeff and I picked up this little guy a few hours ago. He's a very happy and loving puppy... but he has a little cold or something. He's been coughing and gurgling.. I don't know if the shot they gave him and all the excitement of coming home with us is the problem or what... but he's sleeping, so hopefully he will feel better by the time Matthew gets home from work tonight. He's Boston Terrier/Boxer... Almost 6 months old.

My paintings from Wine & Canvas Events.

These are the two painting I did over the weekend at Wine & Canvas Events. I think they turned out pretty good... yes, I could pick them apart and tell you everything I think is wrong with them, that is my nature, but I had fun, and with practice I will get better at it. It's hard to "copy" someone else's work... no matter how hard you try it's going to be different, unless you use a copy machine or lucy. I really hope this opportunity to teach works out... but if not, I had fun and know where to go now when I want to have a fun night out with friends. :)

Edit: Got an email from Wine & Canvas... I am one step closer to being an Artist/Teacher for them... not sure what the next step is, but I am game if they are... happy dance! :)

Update: I had an interview with the office manager a couple days ago. The owner is out of town until Tuesday, so she can't give me any answer until he gets back, but the plan is that they will train me over the summer, and I can teach some of the small classes for the children at first, then by the fall, when they get really busy again, I should be ready to teach the big night classes. I really hope this works out... I really want to do this. :)
