Liberty is Fearless!

We needed some canine body language photos for a project of B-More Dog and figured Liberty would be good for some "fear" examples - she throws pretty clear signals, and freezes up, so that's nice and photogenic. Plus, I always look for training opportunities to take her someplace new and work on that issue with her, so it was a win-win to meet up with a friend who would take photos for us.

Except it turned out to be a lose-win, because Liberty decided she wasn't afraid anymore.

How much is that doggie in the window?

I ain't skeered o' nuttin!

Yes, I'm cute, do you have food?

A lousy pen? I wanted a liver snap!

(and then we got kicked out for taking photographs and violating trade secrets. Seriously.)

What are "trade secrets"? Can I eat them?

Hey - you with the camera? You got treats?

Really? Nothing?

Woe is me. I am so hungry!

I am wasting away - a mere shadow of my former self!

If I sit like a lady can I have a treat?

What if I do that "nose" thing we learned in class?

What if I do that "nose" thing like a basketball star!?

(no dogs were starved, harmed or frightened in the making of this post. she got treats. lots of them. honest.)

It is interesting how different her physique is from Oscar's. I wonder why she decided the world was okay?

Who knows? LOL And there's no guarantee the world will be okay the next time we go. But it was then, so that's good.

She eats as much as, if not more than, Oscar, who is a good dozen pounds more than she is. There's a huge variety of body types within the breed, and Oscar is much closer to standard proportions, but she's definitely got an athletic little metabolism!

I always marvel at her coat. I love the color of it! I'm glad she's more comfortable in her world!
