The Joke was on Me!

We've had somewhat gloomy weather lately, with snow falling on and off, and an occasional burst of sunlight. This morning, the sun was burning through the darkness enough that I could see it but it didn't make the world any brighter.
Of course, when we arrived home from our snowbike ride, the sun suddenly burst through the clouds illuminating the world gorgeously.

The Duo lay in a sun puddle so I tried to get a photo. Both were very sleepy.
I started jumping around, trying to get their attention. R oriented his head a bit more toward me but both sets of eyes were still glued shut.
At this point, I think they were having fun, messing with my head by keeping their eyes firmly closed.
Then I started tossing treats on the floor in front of me. No dice.
 Finally, a squeak from a toy garnered me open eyes from Shyla. R was too smart for that trick!
I never captured any photos with both dogs' eyes open. They won! I had to laugh when I later looked at the series of photos. I showed you only a few of the photos that I took while they were in that sun puddle - and their eyes were closed in every single one. The joke was on me.

But, a little later, as a consolation prize, R fixed his handsome eyes upon me. It was worth the wait!

  13. When His R-ness did decide to open his peepers, it was quite a pretty sight. You can give the boy a smooch back for the one he sent me yesterday.

    Cheers and hugs,
