Halved: a video outtake

Over the weekend, when Mark and I were in our computer room, we looked out to the hallway to see half of Diesel staring at us. He was still ... just resting and watching us, no movement at all outside of the occasional blink of his eyes.

Mark commented that the scene was worthy of a photo and I, too, had the same thought. Diesel has never been a fan of the camera. When it appears he inevitably walks away, apparently thinking we are about to steal his very soul with the mechanism pointed in his direction. Knowing this, we quietly removed the camera from the desk and it's case ... never making eye contact with Diesel, being as stealth and unconcerned as possible so he wouldn't catch on.

Luck was on our side as Mark aimed at the beagle but, wait, what? oh no! it was set to VIDEO! We lost our chance ... or did we? We remained calm and deliberate, changed the camera setting, and managed to get one slightly out-of-focus shot (see previous post) before the beagle was on to us and left the scene.

My favorite part of this blooper, the part that made me write a post about it, was Mark downheartedly saying "oh, now he's wagging" as though once the wagging starts the entire universe may as well explode ... it's so ALL OVER for us.

Funny! It's a great photo, too, even if it's a bit blurry. Perfect symmetry, exactly half of the frog-dog pose. :)
