Celebration and humiliation?...

As per  Sprollies 'n' Border Collies suggestion I took out my old graduation cap and took some pictures with Riley, to commemorate our graduation from beginners agility :) (Cheesy? Yes, I know lol) I'm not sure Riley saw it as celebrating, but more like forced to look funny for mom. This also gave me a chance to play with my new lens! It's hard getting use to manual focusing but I'm sure I will eventually get the hang of it.

Riley was not thrilled, but he let me pose him in a funny hat and for that, he got treats at the end.

He almost looked terrified at times...

Too afraid to move...

Soon he started to relax

And had some fun!

No, Riley there will be no nomming of the square hat, only nomming of treats.

Ok mom...

Ooo a smell!

Oh look! The square hat has fallen! Darn.

Good boy, Riley! Thanks for humoring me :)


  1. He just needed a diploma, and he would have been all set!

  2. Oh man! I should have put the certificate of completion we got next to him. Haha, Oh well.

  3. Wow! Riley looks great in that hat! The black hat complements his speckles well. Adorable dog torture!

  4. I've tagged you for an award!

  5. I don't recognize the dog in the first few pictures, but the last one is definitely Riley! ;)
