A "Ruff" Day

It was a rather "ruff" day here in the Knowlton household. Besides looking after my brother and sister, one of my primary household duties is keeping a vigilant watch out for the UPS and FedEx delivery trucks. With all the stuff that Mom orders online, I'm on a first name basis with the UPS and FedEx drivers. Mr. FedEx even allows me to get into his delivery truck to help him find our packages.

Today, however, I was thrown monkey wrench when a Penske moving truck pulled in the driveway. Being the helpful hound that I am, I went out to see if I could lend a paw by giving the guy some directions. I was pleasantly surprised to find out that Mr. Penske was at the correct address and was delivering Dad's metal pegboard that we ordered him for Father's Day.

In addition to the Penske delivery, I also had two other deliveries to log. I don't know about you, but I always feel better after I blow off a little steam after a "ruff" day. And there's nothing like doing a couple of full bore zoomies around the backyard to clear the air.

Me, my selfie and I

I'm not sure what all the buzz is about selfies and posting them to Facebook. The selfie has been around for centuries. Typically taken at arm's length (or in a mirror) with a hand-held digital camera or camera phone, the selfie usually includes only the photographer often making duck face or peace sign.

In 1839 American pioneer in photography Robert Cornelius produced the first photographic image of a human being — a head and shoulder portrait of himself — or a selfie.

Maybe my lack of interest is because Mom goes crazy taking pictures of Roger, Thelma Lou and me, so we see enough of ourselves. In any event, I thought I'd give this selfie phenomena a try. I'm going to let the Facebook "like" button at the bottom of this post be my gauge as to whether I should try to perfect my self portrait taking skills or just stick with Mom taking photos of me.
