Camera shy

Unfortunately, I have little knitting to post. Instead, I have a rather amusing set of circumstances that I will relate.

I have two dogs. A husky mix and a lab mix. Typically they are pretty excited about everything. The camera, on the other hand... well, as soon as we take the camera out, they run like we're going to beat them with it. Weird, right?

A long discussion over many glasses of wine made us realize that it's the flash they don't like (duh, but it was the wine). I would assume they associate flashes of light with thunder and thunder is kind of scary. So I embarked on a healing process.

Soon they will associate cameras with yummy treats.

The camera comes out...

Hey - TREATS!

Yum yum yum yum yum yum yum...

Aaaaaand, we've made excellent progress today.
What, no more?

I know I'm way late to the game, but that picture of the treats flying at your dog completely cracked my DH and me up. Too freakin funny.
