Beautiful Dog

Port_crossFor Shutter Sisters' Love Thursday....

I've often lamented that we have a lot of pictures of Moe, but not so many of Miss Bella (aka Porterhouse, Porterbella, Bella Bean, Miss Bean, Mean Bean, Pretty Girl).  I think I overstate this because it makes me feel guilty sometimes--I don't want people to think we don't love her, after all.

But something about the camera obviously makes her really uncomfortable.  She absolutely squirms when I point it her way, and all I generally get is a brown, furry blur.  I've tried cajoling, bribery, threats....She really just doesn't want anything to do with Crazy Mom's black-clicking-box.

But every so often--when Moe's been left at home, and she's gotten to come out to breakfast on a Saturday, and it's warm, and she's resting and people watching after eating her very own poached egg--I manage to sneak up on her....

And when I come back and look at the pictures later, I'm always kind of taken aback--isn't she just beautiful?
