This ‘N That Thursday

Today we are joining our friends over at 2 Brown Dawgs for This ‘N That Thursday’s blog hop!

This is what she has to say about the hop,

“This ‘N That Thursday is for anything you want!  Maybe you want to post about unrelated topics, or each topic isn’t quite long enough to make up a whole post, or you have awards to share, or you have one long post…anything goes!  So grab the button and join the hop!”

This 'N That 3

Thank You 2 Brown Dawgs

Tomorrow I will be going out to my friends to visit with Titan so I hope the weather will cooperate so we can do some training and I can get photos of my handsome boy in action. I can’t wait to see him run in a hunt test, hope he doesn’t drink any stupid water that day…lol

Well conformation training has halted for the next few weeks with Maia, she is in season…yeah! So when the girls are in season I tend not to walk them around town or take them out front to practice anything because they leave their calling card and I don’t want any strange males hanging around. I am happy about that because this is her second cycle, so it looks like she will have normal twice a year cycles; which makes it a little easier for breeding. Her mother only came in once a year, maybe, so it made it hard to plan a breeding. I will probably take her with me tomorrow so we can get a little training in.

I have been using photo bucket to edit my photos and I also use Microsoft for cropping and enhancing color and I have tried Gimp, I would like to find a photo editor with a little more options for editing photos but I don’t which ones are good and user friendly is a must. I haven’t even figured out all my settings on my camera so I know I would never figure out an editor if it is to difficult to use, at least until I get familiar with it. I would like to be able to easily put my copyright watermark on photos. So my questions to everyone,

What photo editor do you use?

What do you like about the one you use?

Do you have any tips you would like to share with me about editing photos?

So that wraps up our Thursday, why don’t you hop on over to 2 Brown Dawgs see what their up to and join the fun!

This ‘N That Thursday ~ Where Do I Begin…

Well I begin by giving Jodi a heart felt apology for not getting this particular post up much sooner. Jodi I want you to know how much I value your friendship! I look forward to the day that we may be able to meet in person but until then I know you are always in blogville.

You see back in November Jodi at Heart Like A Dog had a contest,Printcopia give away, to win an 8×10 canvas print. So I did the things required to enter and would you believe it…I won!! I was thrilled when Jodi contacted me to let me know and could not wait to order my print. I was immediately contacted by the representative from Printcopia with the directions on how to order my print. I have to tell you this site is awesome, not only do they do quality work but they are very quick, I had the print in less than a week after ordering. The hard part of the whole thing was deciding on what photo I would use so after hours and hours…not really…I decided on Cheyenne’s WD photo. I wanted something very special to remember this event and this print will be my special memento of not only her achieving her WD but that we won it from our very dear friend Jodi over at Heart Like A Dog. We here at Misty Shores thank you so much Jodi and here is the finished product.

Isn’t it beautiful!

Chesapeke Bay Retriever ~ Cheyenne Canvas Print (9)

 I had several choices for how I could have the side wrapped, so I decided to go with the mirrored wrap. I really like it, what do you think?


Now some of you may remember the Blogville calendar contest Blogville Calendar (6)Jodi had back in November(yes that is how far behind I am in blogging) to raise money to help out some of our canine friends in need while offering a wonderful calendar to the rest of us to purchase. Anyway we entered and came in 4th place which just so happens to be the month we were placed which just so happens to be my birth month…how great is that!! Blogville Calendar (1)

The calendar is beautifully done and I ended up buying two so I could give one to my very dearest friend for Christmas, and yes she loved it! Jodi did a follow up on the contest you can read here. I warn you it is very touching so you might want to have tissue handy. So again thank you so much Jodi for doing such a great job on both of your contests and we are glad to have been part of it!



Thanks 2 Brown Dawgs for letting us join you!


A Little Fun With Photos


Found this app so thought I would give it a try; if you hover over a photo it will enlarge. I noticed some of the photos are repeats, maybe it did that in order to complete the shape or maybe I had it twice in my album Winking smile either way I thought this was kind of cool.
