Hooray! We are going to have a reprieve from this extremely hot weather and what better way to celebrate the change than to take your dog or pup out and let him play with the children. It will still be warm enough to turn on the sprinkler so the youngsters can run through the water as they play, and what good action shots you will have to take pictures for future enjoyment.
If your children are grown, perhaps your grandchildren can be enticed to come over and play. If they are not available, try the neighborhood youngsters. Even pre-teens might find it fun to toss balls through the wave of water for your pup to chase, affording you a chance to catch your dog in action.
In order to get the best outdoor shots it is recommended you choose a bright but cloudy day so the lighting is not harsh. Brilliant sunshine has a tendency to “melt” the fur instead of bringing out the texture and muddle the dog’s expression as he gallops after the children or after the ball.
