Recently I made some lovely new blog friends! Their names are Echo & Link and they are two very handsome doggies who live in the faraway place that my humans visited on holiday last year: La France!
Echo and Link are both rescue doggies and they are Husky-crosses. Their human, Maité, has been amazing and done lots of work and training with them – especially Link, who is a bit ‘shy’ – and she has helped them lots to forget their stressy pasts and become happy, confident doggies!
Maité is very interested in clicker training too – so Echo & Link have been having lots of fun learning new tricks – and of course, we have lots to talk about! Their blog is in French which means Hsin-Yi gets a chance to practise her French, helping me read their posts – although I have to admit, we used to write our comments in French too but it used to take Hsin-Yi 20mins to compose 1 sentence! – so now we have gotten lazy and just write our comments in English.
Anyway, a couple of weeks ago, Echo & Link gave me a lovely present: a cartoon that their human drew of me & Muesli!
And then they gave me a challenge: to re-create this drawing in a real photo!
Of course, the biggest problem was Muesli. Could we get her to pose in the same spot as the picture, for the photo? Kitties never do anything that you want them to! Still, you know Hsin-Yi…she can never resist a challenge!
So I thought it would be funny to make a behind-the-scenes movie of us trying to get this photo. – this is pretty much what happens whenever Hsin-Yi tries to get a photo of the 2 of us together (unless she happens to find us sleeping next to each other) – so you can see what goes into getting those “great shots” – hee! hee!
*(Tip: take LOTS of pictures – hey, it’s digital, so it’s free, right? – and then just throw the rubbish ones away. If you take a LOT, there’s bound to be 1 good shot in there, right? )
So what do you think?
If the movie doesn’t play, try here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DPeyMHbu9BU
Well, it’s not exactly the same as the drawing but I think we got pretty close! And we had great fun doing it! (OK, Hsin-Yi had to go lie down for a while afterwards but it could have been worse…) Thanks so much, Echo & Link for this fun challenge!
