Fall Afternoons

Boston Terrier Catches Frisbee

Fall afternoons are the best.

Miley and Howie especially think so.

It’s not too hot, not too cold, and the sun is just too beautiful to stay inside.

Yep. Fall afternoons are irresistible.

Miley and Howie get so excited to go outside and play. They’re so fun to watch.

The simple act of putting on shoes and walking towards the back door have them jumping and spinning in circles.

A few weeks ago we got Miley a new frisbee, and she’s getting really good at catching it.

She just snatches it out of mid-air!

The girl has intense focus as she tracks her target.

Another great grab!

Miley’s all smiles as the frisbee takes flight..

And she spots it! Look how her expression changes here. So serious!

She comes away with it one more time!

Keep your eye on the prize, Miley!

And even when she doesn’t catch it…

She still snatches it up. That frisbee’s not getting away!

Look at this smiley little guy.

He’s got a favorite toy too.

Ready to pounce!

We get these little squeaker soccer balls from PetSmart and Howie just goes nuts for them.

The look on this crazy happy face says it all!

Hi Amanda! Lovely shots you got there. I have a quick question… On that afternoon, how many actual pictures did you take? I know when I take pictures, I have to take like 20 to find that perfect one. Just curious :)

Hi Mindy! Great question! We spent just under 30 minutes outside that afternoon and I took 724 photos. Holy smokes, I just did the math on that and that’s about 27 photos per MINUTE, lol! That’s roughly one photo every two seconds for 30 minutes straight. It definitely helps that my camera can take 8 photos a second, I think I was just continually shooting the whole time. :) Out of that, I ended up with about 90 that were useable — I guess that makes my success rate about 13%! I narrowed it down to my 20 favs to share here. :)

Photo Stats Recap
27 minutes
724 photos
2.24 photos per second
93 useable photos
12.8% success rate

Trivia: I wanted to be a math teacher when I grew up. True story.

Absolutely adorable! My Bostons aren’t big fans of the squeaker balls, but they go bat crazy over frisbees. I have these old rubber ones from Old Navy of all places stockpiled because they’ve proven tough enough to withstand the pressure of two Bostons trying to rip them apart.

Love, love, love Boston Terriers! Your two are adorable!! We have two adorable little Boston’s named Roxy (she’s 5) and Minnie (she’s 10 months). The best breed of dog, ever, in my opinion. Such people dogs that live to love their people.:) So much fun to play with…..simply the best! Thanks for sharing your sweet pictures.

My BT Mia loves the little soccer ball too, goes nuts for it in fact. On a sad note, my older BT Maggie was diagnosed with cancer two weeks ago. We are devastated. She will be 13 in January so we aren’t doing chemo/radiation. She is blind and nearly deaf so we are just going to enjoy the time we have left. Maggie is my husbands first dog ever and he is just beside himself with this news. Maggie is definitely his dog. Good news is that I had Racahael Rossman paint both my BT’s. They turned out beautiful!

Seriously, they have to be the cutest doggies I have ever seen. Wow – the stats blew me away. Not feeling so bad about taking 200 just to get a decent Christmas photo for cards every year {4 kids plus one dog = lots of photos}

That is a ton of pictures! The more I take pictures, though, the more I realize that I have to take bunches in order to get a few good ones.

I am a high school math teacher so I also love seeing things in stats and numbers :)

Amanda,
Thanks so much for sharing Miley & Howie with everyone. I have 3 Boston Terriers so I know how much joy one can get from being around them. They have such emotion and expression. I have been following your dogs pretty much from the beginning when you just had Howie. And I look forward to every update.

great pictures, as usual :)
i have a boston myself, he was a 2 year old rescue with some “issues”. he’s fabulous now at 4.5, still cuckoo but we love him. I also have 2 boston gran-pups and one of them has really sensitive skin. i was wondering if yours ever have skin issues?

thanks!

Pat October 20, 2011 at 9:52 am

We lost our sweet Boston Terrier, Molly, just over 3 years ago. I still miss her so much! She was almost a twin of your Miley, so I really enjoy seeing your dogs in action, having fun and enjoying life. In response to Chris, above: Molly had sensitive skin that was allergy-related; we always had to use a special shampoo and an ointment when her skin got irritated, and she took Benedryl everyday. Keep posting the fun pix of your BTs!
