    I decorated my apartment awhile back with modern furniture and I love how it works in photographs with Jude. It makes taking nice pictures really easy. I love the crisp look of him against the plain white furniture. It makes him look so trendy! Here's a few favorites from inside:

    Jude is such an easy dog. It helps that he and I have a lot of time together and it tires him out, but he is just great at entertaining himself. I work from home so we usually sleep until 11 or so, then I begin work and he plays with his toys very nicely. Occasionally I have to go and take a flip flop away from him, but he quickly finds a new toy and sits contently chewing on it. Throughout the day I usually give him a yogurt and water ice-cube, a kong in the morning while I sleep, and we do 2 short rounds of clicker training. I think this helps a lot. We usually spend 2-3 hours sitting downstairs at a coffee shop while I work. Switching up the stimuli helps him a lot I think. In the evenings we always do something together let it be a walk, going out to eat together and walking downtown to get there, or him coming to my kickball games. I'm not sure if he's just tired a lot from busy days, or if he is just a content dog in general. I love that sometimes he's very high energy and driven and playful, and that he can be very focused on his bones and toys too. Anyway, he's doing wonderfully and I'm enjoying him so much! I've officially had him for 15 days now, and he'll be 10 weeks old on Thursday.

    Here's a bunch more! :)

    I kept barking at him to get his attention and he found this very exciting.

    Wrestling with a BC/lab/some larger breed mix that we are friends with. The other dog is 75 pounds and Jude is 10 pounds, but they're so cute together!

    I love watching him slowly take each item out of his toy box, play with it for 5 minutes, and then go and find another. He's very diligent.

    He's such a scratcher! Is this normal for puppies? Vet says he looks fine!

    Thanks for letting me share! :) Sorry for the huge share... as a photographer, I just can't help myself. He's a good sport about it surprisingly!

    Well lately I've had my hands so full I haven't thought much of a bc. Mia has kept me really busy (and entertained). I'm pretty content to wait a few years actually. At least until Mia is grown up. I could not take Mia plus a bc pup lol.

    Gosh he's sweet. Finn scratched a lot for a few weeks right after I got him, my vet said it was normal, and he stopped after awhile... so I wouldn't worry unless you start seeing redness and such from over-scratching.

    Also, not to hijack your thread, but I think it's so funny that Jude's best pal is a lab mix... Finn's first dog friend after coming home was also a lab mix, his pal Roscoe.

    It's too cute when they love playing with the big guys. :D

    And agreed with others, don't you dare apologize for so many photos. Not only is Jude adorable and enough is never enough, but you're a great photographer! You have a really distinct style and it'[s really nice. :)
