Saturdays with Shadow

I can’t believe it’s already Saturday again – the days seem to be flying by lately! This morning Mike and I decided to finally finish the Lord of the Rings trilogy… my parents own it and let us borrow their copy. Did you know that The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King is FOUR HOURS AND TEN MINUTES long? Apparently¬†my parents bought the extended version, because why watch only nine hours when you can have eleven? Holy cow. That said, it was a great trilogy, just very time consuming. Shadow wanted nothing to do with it, so he spent the morning playing outside. Now he’s tired and lounging around:

Saturdays with Shadow

This is actually one of my favorites of Shadow. Those of you with labs know it’s almost impossible to get a good picture of them. Shadow will pose and then the minute the camera goes “click” he’s on the move and I have a blurry shot. This was taken after a long day of playing in the yard and working on the patio with Daddy. He was so tired that he didn’t bother to protest being photographed. I love that little grey chin!

Saturdays with Shadow

I’ve decided to start a new segment on my blog called “Saturdays with Shadow”. Every Saturday I’m going to post a picture or funny story from the week about him. Since I now have the camera and Photoshop, expect to see more pictures… I’m having so much fun playing with both of them!

This picture is from the first day I had my camera… Shadow was in his pen and I took a zillion pictures. I was playing in Photoshop this morning and was able to crop and add some effects. I still have a lot to learn, but I like the result!
