PhoDOGraphy: Frankie’s New Pet Cam

My dog Frankie is now a photographer (a phoDOGrapher, if you will). And this is his very first ever exhibit. I read about Cooper the photographer cat last year and thought I could try something like that with Frankie. I bought a pet’s eye view camera from eBay and away we went. Here’s his adventure in his own words:

Yay! Jean’s taking me out. It’s playtime. But this traffic light is taking forever and she won’t let me run across the street. And just look at that hydrant. It needs me.

Finally. What’s this? Oh no! Playgrounds are for those horrible two-legged puppies. I can’t stand human puppies. So shrill and unpredictable. I’m getting outta here.


I know that building! That’s where humans go to mark their territory. This means we’re really close to the dog park. Hurry Jean, we’re almost there!


We’re here! I’m finally untethered from that leash! Time to run! And sniff. What are those scents? Mmm. Delightful. Earthy, pungent. I like them all. So much information. I can’t take it.

Running, running, turning in circles. Whee!

Whoa. I’m kinda dizzy now. I don’t feel so well. Why did I do that? I’m almost 48 years old. Where is my dignity? Hey, is that Ricky?

Ricky! Nice threads. I like the jacket. No really. It suits you. It’s a bit retro. 70s in a cool sorta way. No, it doesn’t make your tail look fat. Yeesh that guy is insecure.


I think I know that woman. She’s got treats. Wait for me! I’m starving. No really. I haven’t had food in forever! Jean doesn’t really feed me. Nope. She’s bad that way. What do you mean you don’t believe me? What? I am not pudgy. I’m a bit big-boned, but…

Hey, is that guy taking my picture? Oh yeah, well two can play at that game. I’ll take your picture then. Oops. I think he saw me. Time to go!

Excuse me. Pardon me. Coming through.

Let. Me. Out.

Freedom! Time for  a nap.

    LOL!!! HILARIOUS!!!!

    Frankie is a talented and humorous little fellow!

  2. So cute! As someone who loves to paint, some of the blurry ones would be really fun to attempt. I don’t think I have ever heard of an artist who has done that yet. HMMM:)

  3. Ahhh Jean- I always knew that Frankie took after his talented mom! Miss you both~ we don’t have any friends as cool as you and Frankie around here…

    • Miss you too! Frankie asks about you from time to time 😉 I had no idea he was interested in photography, but it’s working out well. I’m taking him and his camera to Marymoore when the weather gets better.

Let's chat! I love hearing from you:
