Default Bert & The Chicken

You would never have guessed it, but Bert was frightened of his rubber chicken to start off with. Had a bit of a practise trying to get action shots - so all tips and advice would be greatly appreciated. Hope you like the shots, Bert had fun posing for you

Some chicken shredding adice from Bert .........

1. Run up paddock whilst giving rubber chicken a jolly good shake.
2. Run up paddock in opposite direction to annoy pesky photographer.
3. Take a break, look cute, and gett to grips with the chickens head.
4. Go for a stroll with now headless chicken.
5. Pose for "Job well done" photo and looked pleased with yourself !!

Bert looks like a happy guy. You'll have to get him another chicken!

Diane,

Congratulations! This is art. Not only are your pictures well taken, funny, wonderful, moving, optimistic, colourful - they are something completely new: impressionistic dog pictures

Being a friend of the French impressionists. The French countryside shines through these pictures. I've never seen anything like it. That poppylike red dots make the pictures complete

You certainly have done it. This is how dog photos should look like. I think - not staged studioshots with hats and such ...

You are lucky to have Bert as your new friend

(On the chicken - don't buy another - in the long run it would be very expensive )

Just woke up to another rainy day - thank you for helping me through it

Torgny

Chickens have a crappy life...!
First they dread a festival of any kind- or Sundays- then they have to avoid being turned into a Burger. Another scenario to avoid is the dreaded "egg shed".
And last but not least, staying away from dogs to avoid being "scragged"..!!
I don't want to come back as a Chicken...!!

Hi MudPuppy, Torgny & Simon - and thanks for the feedback and fab comments.

Torgny - I am striving to keep up with your fab dog shots - so thanks v v much for your encouragement.

Simon40 - the chickens are on there way to our back yard so it will be interesting to see how Bert reacts!!! Probably not too bright and idea getting him the rubber chicken

My Ziggy loves his toy rooster, it even crowed till it got rained on the other day. Zig is half labrador retriever and half beagle. If he can be trained to ignore my chickens, Bert can be trained to ignore yours. He's 19 months old so plenty young enough to chase birds if he wanted to!
