Sparta’s Project

“To catch the bunny, one must BE the bunny.”  

  Ideas are like rabbits. You get a couple and learn how to handle them, and pretty soon you have a dozen.   

   - John Steinbeck

Sparta has this little trick I taught her a long time ago…basically, she hold random objects in her mouth, allowing me to snap a pic.  Frankly, she’s quite good at it, and I’m very proud of her.  So far she has over 135 pics, with no fails.

Last Easter, my father-in-law came over for to help dye eggs, and of course I had to show off Sparta’s new trick, using an uncooked egg.  Sparta held it carefully, allowed me to snap the pic, and waited until I retrieved it safe from her mouth.

I was impressed….I mean she didn’t even crack it!!!!
But that got me thinking.  I announced that she would not only hold an egg in her mouth, she would dye an Easter egg, using the wire holder, without breaking the egg.  It took about 20 minutes to set up the shot, get her to hold that tiny wire in her mouth, and balance the egg, but it is Team Sparta and Kerry.  We got it covered.
