Chase's Favorite Sport Is ...

... running away from a camera!

A few days ago, I tried to take some pictures of Chase with our new kitty, Tipper. I did my best to get Chase to relax and stay calm by sitting beside him, petting him, scratching his chin, rubbing his ears -- doing things he adores -- all while giving him lots of TILLMAN'S TREATS. (Chase *LOVES* TILLMAN'S TREATS by NATURAL BALANCE -- he won a case of them during a recent contest through our dear friend @CokieTheCat from TWITTER. Tipper loves them, too, but I have to feed him just a tiny piece at a time.)

When everything was perfect, I reached for the camera and turned it on while continuing to distract Chase with lovin' and treats. The instant he saw the camera in my hands, he bolted and the only non-blurry picture I was able to get was this one -- of his left hind leg!

Running away from the camera, sadly, has been Chase's only sport until very recently. Tipper joined us about ten days ago and since then the 12-pound cat manages to get the 120-pound Great Dane to engage in playful romps around the house several times a day. I'm hoping during one of those fun times Chase will be distracted enough so he won't notice a camera.




  1. That new addition is apparently very good for Chase. I bet in time he's won't notice the camera - but maybe not for awhile.

  2. PepiSmartDog: Ray I'm checking to make sure you are "IN" the blog hop; looks like you are Buddy. Just yell if you need more help. HUGS XXX

  3. Enjoy Tipper buddy! Our Toby keeps me on my toes too!

  4. That's so good you got Chase a pal! I have lots of pals. We're three bulldogs and a kitty cat. We love our kitty cat, too. Woof!!

  5. PepiSmartDog: Maybe Chase used to be a Celebrity and he had to keep running away from the Pawparazzi. Or he's a secret CIA undercover DOG. OMD, that's probably it ! This explains why Chase likes wearing trench-coats. Hee ! Hee !
