Eva’s Project – March & April 2017

Eva’s Project – March & April 2017

March and April was mainly set in the kitchen and dog park for Eva’s project.

This “can’t stop won’t stop” photo made use of a coffee mug bought for dog portraits then adapted to every day use in our house.  The mug really does match her personality.  Please note, no coffee was consumed during this photo session.

Dave: Eva, do you like the new mug?
Eva: Great idea to give me a coffee mug. I could use a bit more energy.
Dave: Really, the dog that is always ready to go at a moment’s notice is looking for caffeine?
Eva: Yup. It’s what us Brits do. Jack ourselves up on caffeine then terrify birds and make plans to rule the world.
Dave: I’m not sure that’s a real thing for Brittanies to do.
Eva: Which part of it?
Dave: The coffee. And possibly the rule the world part too.
Eva: Well, if you kept the coffee tin lower without clicking the latch on it I’m sure you’d see that you’re wrong about both of those.
Dave: You must realize that coffee is bad for dogs.
Eva: Pish posh. That’s more of a guideline than a rule.
Dave: Yeah, we’ll be keeping the coffee canister clicked shut in that high cupboard.

The second photo of march “ante meridem” was a photo attempting to show how well Eva can communicate what she wants.  Here is is yogurt from the fridge.  I am personally a big fan of how out of control her coat looks here.

Eva: Ahem.
Dave: Pardon me?
Eva: Ahem?
Dave: Should I assume that you want something?
Eva: No need to assume anything. I’m telling you. You forgot my breakfast.
Dave: Really? It’s 6:45 am.
Eva: Yup. You said it. “a.m.” “ante meridem”
Dave: I never knew that you were fluent in latin.
Eva: Darn tooting I am. Ante meridem translates to “get out of bed and feed your dog, especially the white and orange one”
Dave: I’m not so sure about that.
Eva: Well, we could stand around all ante meridem and debate about it usque ad domum emergebant, or you could just open the fridge, grab the greek yoghurt and start the whole process.
Dave: usque ad domum emergebant?
Eva: Yes. It means “until the cows come home” And right now that’s seeming like a realistic option for me as I might just have to make my own yoghurt if you don’t help me out soon.

The first photo of April was her at full speed in the dog park.  No dogversation to go with, just a Brittany moving at full speed with her tongue hanging out.

And the final project shot was of her hanging out with the coveted bunny at Easter time.  The bunny was a new toy which made it super interesting.  Agnes had also just joined our family, so there was extra interest in the new toy, but Eva certainly was unwilling to share.
