Black and White Sunday: Lazing in the Sun

Snoozing atop Hug Hill...

In the next photo, I tried a trick that I've seen my friend from Tales and Tails do. It's pretty dramatic to keep the bright eye color of Shyla when the rest of the picture is black and white!
By the way, her newest trick, taught with a clicker, is to rest her snout on the ground or on her paw(s). You can see it in both photos.


  1. Love the sleepy eyes in the first photo. I think I look like that right now, but on the couch. I'd rather be on a "Hug Hill" but it is almost a blizzard of snow outside and MOM has to go back to church, so no Hug Hill for the Goose today. MOM would love to do the color eye thing, but can't figure it out how to do it.

  2. Oh wow! That shot of Shyla with her eyes in color is incredible! You did it so, so well! I love it!

  3. Hi Y'all!

    My Human is often saying "the eyes say it all". Now I know what she's talkin' about.

    Shyla is a stunning girl!

    Y'all come by now,
    Hawk aka BrownDog

  4. That last picture made my heart skip a beat. Your eyes are the window to your sole and Shyla has a pure heart of gold.

  5. Just when I think you can't possibly get a cuter picture of Shyla, you manage it!

  6. Oh my sweet sweet Shyla. The body of an athlete, the spirit of the hawk, and the soul of love.
    how I have enjoyed watching you grow and experience your life with KB, R and Runner.

  7. Her love for you just oozes out her eyes!! what a special girl she is.

  8. We love the eyes!!!

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

  9. I have a tattoo sleeve like this. The whole thing is black and white except the eyes of the lion... they are green. Absolutely stunning concept... in both photography on Shyla.. and my sleeve. :)


  10. Woof! Woof! Those EYES. Happy Black n White SUNDAY. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  11. Rest your nose on the ground!!!!! Smarty pants

  12. Add me to those who love that last picture with the brown eyes. It looks sort of impossible but you see it quite often. Miss Gorgeous Mountaingirl, looks great.


  13. There is an app in the iTunes store called ColorSplash that you can do this to your pictures, it's pretty neat, and free!

  14. We love the eyes!

    Love ya lots,
    Mitch and Molly

  15. Oh..... that is impressive! Shyla you never cease to amaze us. Pretty soon you're gonna be one of the smartest dogs in Blogville. Yup, right up there with Miss Nola. She's one smart cookie too!

    We love that 2nd picture with the colored eyes. You did good KB!!

  16. I like that effect! She's such a good model.

  17. Love both shots. The eye color technique is cool! Shyla is a real heart stealer.

  18. I love that picture! Very dramatic!

  19. oh wow!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    we love the photos.

  20. The eyes are definitely cool. I'll have to give that a try.

  21. Wow - love that eye trick, KB. Your gal is clicker-smart! Is it snowing there - we're in Denver, and it's slowly coming down.

  22. Shyla is a beautiful girl.

  23. I LOVE the black and white shot with color in Shyla's eyes! AWESOME!!!
