You Gotta Make Play While The Sun Shines!

On Monday we had some sunshine. So the Duchess took some time off from pulling weeds to play with us and her camera, of course.

Mister Higgins has a one track mind.

His whole existence revolves around one thing.

Food is not near as important as the "Orange Ball"

I just like to relax in the sun and soak up the warmth.

However, I do not like being hounded by the Duchess and her camera.

Maybe I could distract her somehow.  
LOOK!  Higgins is being so cute!  Quick!  Take HIS picture!

It worked :)

I think I will just wait for the Duke to get home.  He understands me.


  1. Some very cool shots there! We know humans are unable to play without taking their camera along - guess it is the price we have to pay!

  2. Great pictures of Mister Higgins and you, Emma. I love the one you're relaxing in the sun, you're so beautiful. I think Mister Higgins is going to be one of the great footballers soon :)

  3. Mr. Higgins definitely has that crazed-ball expression. I've seen it before ....

  4. I see you are a daddy's girl!!

  5. The weed puller took so cool photos. I'm like you get a sun tan. We see some buddy else prefers that big ball. Cute!
    Have a fun day

  6. Mr. Higgins, woo are most athletic and bouncy!!

    Emma, I don't blame ya, those two-leggers can be really CrAzY with those flashy beasts!! Just keep distracting them, they have short memories.

    OOOOO LOOK...something shiny....

    Wags and woofs,
    Mack and Mia

  7. Its lovely to play outside with your fave toys.

  8. Lovely photos!
    You can see it Mr. Higgins' eyes...he needs an Orange Ball Intervention. good luck!

  9. Wooos! I know just how woo feel, Scampi and his ball, and his ball, and his ball.... it gets so tiring just watching him...
    Mum is making comments on weeding too, something about not being able to go out there and get tackling them, they are getting quite big.

  10. Glad you were able to enjoy yesterday's brief sun, as today doesn't look so promising does it. Great action photos there!

  11. You have some very beautiful action shots of Mister Higgins!! You can tell he is loving his ball!! I love the one of Emma Rose in the sun. She looks quite regal. Of course, she is the Queen! Love them all!! Lots of love, Debbie and Holly

  12. Wow- those are some great shots!

  13. Emma...I am with you...JAcob is also "all about the ball" or "All about jumping in the tree"....

    Thank goodness for the Daddy....

  14. BOL! I love how elegant and refined you look, compared to how goofy Mr. Higgins looks at the same time! You are such a lady, Miss Emma!


  15. What PAWESOME pikhs!

    Woo look sooooo elegant and regal fur sure!

    And Mister Higgins?



  16. Those are amazing photos! How did you do it? I love the ball above Mr. Higgins' head and him leaping for it. Wow!

  17. Great action shots of the ball driven half crazy Higgens!! He certainly is focused on the ball, Chance is ball driven comes in handy sometimes when I need to get his attention. I swear sometimes something happens in their brain..they are so focused and obsessed. We play ball many times a is warm here now so he ends a ball playing session in his wading pool..Higgens may need a pool too:)

  18. Hello Emma Rose!

    Mr Higgins is so sporty! Could he be joining the World Cup?

    We do love your elegant photos too. Do enjoy the sunshine. =)

  19. Great agility there Mr Higgins! I too love my balls, and sticks, and Frisbee! Sweet Emma, you just kick back and soak up the sun!

  20. Looks like flyball !

    Lovely pictures :-)


  21. Emma Rose! You have wonderful recounts of your day! Love the photos. They really capture the motion. And, Higgins! I'm right there with ya!! Let's play ball!

    Hugs and snaggle-tooth kisses,
    Sierra Rose

  22. What a kick! Higgins certainly does have a focus that is easily observed! It must be really really hard to have the patience that Emma has, heehee.

  23. Look at you fly!! Beautiful pics!

  24. Oh, man! That second picture is really funny. Higgins' eyes are as big as saucers! :)

  25. Looks like a fun day! Nice pics! I'd want to take lots of photos of you too:)

  26. Ah, Emma you are indeed refined and lovely. But, I would love to play with Mr. Higgins!! I play with Oscar and he is very good, but now that I have become coordinated I am much faster than him and can easily out run him to get his ball. Mr. Higgins would definitely present a better challenge!

  27. That orange ball must be furry important!!

    Mom let out a big "awwww" when she saw the pic of you relaxing in the sun. :-)


  28. That Mr. Higgins was catching some serious air there w/ his high jumps! Tiring me out just watching him! I think I might've relaxed in the sun with you Emma!
    Berner Kisses,

  29. Fabulous action shots!
    Mister Higgins is so cool, and he has a wonderful tail!
    Mummy's childhood woofie loves balls too!
    Emma, you are so beautiful, you're making us swoon!

  30. Silly boys sure can get obsessed with their toys. We think you are lovely and you can come lie in the shade under the tree with us anytime and we'll talk girl talk.

  31. Mister Higgins has really matured since we first met him on YOUR blog! He is growing up to be a fine young man! You on the other hand, will always be the Queen! xx
