My attempt to move from Southern California and create a happy and sustainable urban homestead in North Dakota, with some musings on life with deaf dogs, a gluten free spouse, and the occasional mischievous garden gnome. Thank you for visiting and I hope you enjoy.

Poll Results and Camera News

The results on our "What Would You Change" poll here at the Deaf Dogs and Benevolent Gnomes blog are tallied up and ready for an in depth statistical analysis.   Our winning answer was "You're awesome, just keep doing what you do".  While it's flattering and highly complimentary that my blog readers think the Deaf Dogs and Benevolent Gnomes blog is already pretty spiffy, it doesn't give me a ton of ideas for improvement.  But that's OK.  I'm going to use this as motivation to keep posting entertaining nuggets for y'all to digest and enjoy. 

And in a bit of happy news, our old digital camera decided to start working again, so there's no need to buy a new one....yet.  On the way out the door to run some errands (including buying a new camera) I tried to give the old camera one last shot.  So I smacked the camera on the table a few times and VOILA!! it worked.  It reaffirms my core belief that the best way to get sensitive electronics to work properly is to smack them on a hard surface.  To prove its functionality, I snapped the photos below of the pups sitting nicely. 
Then I waited too long to snap the next photo and the puppy decided that it was time to pounce, so we ended up with an action shot. 
Since we're having so much fun with the polls, this week there will be a new poll for you to vote on.  This poll promises to a dandy, the Deaf Dog of the Year for 2011.  And lo, it shall be awesome!!

Loved the action shot. My dogs are getting so old they refuse to look at the camera when I point it at them. Especially Miss Pudding, who will glance at me with a 'talk to the paw' look that makes me feel silly for attempting a photograph. Anxiously awaiting the next poll.
