Funny Faces

Can you guess what kind of game we were playing when I took this photo? Yes, it did involve treats. Only treats could make Shyla open her eyes so wide on a bright day!

Here was the next photo in the series, as I tossed Shyla a treat. She seemed to be looking the wrong way!

We also played the game where she balances a treat on her nose and then flips it into the air.

It was a good day for games like these ones. My spine was hurting so dog games were more fun than too much riding.
I hope that you're having a better start to the week than I am!


  1. Lol, that last picture is too funny! She obviously takes treat catching very seriously!

  2. her face is PRICELESS I love the LOOKS.. makes me laugh every time. the first two should say WHAT??? You did WHAT??? ReallY???
    is the bell on her collar to keep track of her when walking?

    1. Yes, the bell helps me to know where she is when I'm riding my bike and she's off-leash. It also warns the wildlife that we're about to pass them. I really like it - so I can use my ears to keep track of her!

  3. oh I guesssed it... it's treat acrobatic...or treat-art ;o)

  4. Oh what fun for both of you. I miss such days I had with my hunting dogs...

  5. I am just as focused when it comes to treats
