BrownStone Chinooks is devoted to fostering the excellent health and wonderful temperament of Chinook dogs. Hard-working Chinooks excel in many activities such as agility, obedience, back yard play, hiking, dog powered sports, search and rescue, and as service dogs. The affectionate Chinook is an excellent family dog matching its activity level to that of its companions - be it strenuous exercise or snuggling on the couch.

Overdue Pupdate

Challenges this year have shifted my focus away for keeping up with the Pupdates. The past three months were a jumble of emotions and activities. However, as many blog followers do, I too look forward to the Pupdates so here is February - April 2019.

April 12 The yard flooded after many days of rain.
Ullr checking out the new pond.
An added dimension for Chinook tag.
April 16, 2019 I am taking a photo class and for my project I hope to get worthy pictures of the dogs. Everything has to be shot manually and without after-shot editing. I have a LOT to learn.
 Trask - nice shot, poor white balance.
April 17, 2019 Trask presented me with a squirrel to add to his portrait.
"I am not giving it up. You just have to take your picture where I am."
 Cedar - white balance tripped me up again.
 Trask - need a lot of work figuring out depth of field.
 Koyuk - composition and depth of field issues.
April 20, 2019 When I started this photo, Koyuk and Cedar were entangled in one another's legs. By the time I figured out the camera settings, Koyuk had moved away.  Dogs and photography is harder than I thought.
April 21, 2019 - Trask after chasing a weasel hiding in a muddy ditch pipe for over an hour. Only after I took the shot did I notice the dead mouse caught in his collar.
4-23-2019  Koyuk - my skills are improving.
Well, I have blown hours finding and downloading photos to this post. Time to move on to actually studding for my photo class.
