I have figured out how to take Cocoa’s photo. I position the camera away from my face and then call her name. She wants to see my eyes folks! This makes total sense because at Dog School 101, she learned to “watch” and then expect a command. When the camera is in front of my face, she can’t see me and doesn’t know what I’m asking her to do. I took this photo while having lunch at a really cool place in Linville, North Carolina. It is off the “beaten” path and is billed has one of the oldest stores in the area (1938). The people who own it are known for their BBQ and smoked turkey, which was absolutely wonderful.

Since I love Coca Cola, you know I loved the front door! And the American flag was tossed in for effect.
