Erp Durs

Posted: July 9, 2010 in pets, photography

Goofball dogs, waiting for a cookie:

They pay Very Close Attention when someone is in the kitchen. And it’s a rare thing indeed that I can get a fairly clear picture of them all sitting still at the same time.

(*Title explanation – that’s what we call the pack of dogs, in general. A bunch of erp durs.)

    I love that they’re sitting on the rug! My dog’s hug the counters when I’m in the kitchen, hoping something slips and they can grab it first.

      The rug is “their” spot, so that’s where they go when we tell them to “go lay down.” And we’d just told them that because they were ALL in the kitchen looking for those scraps to hit the floor!

    Awww…the Erp Durs are cute, all focused on what the humans are doing.
    ‘Erp durs’ still means nothing to me I’m afraid Is that an acronym, an Americanism or just a name out of nowhere? (We do the latter quite often in our house. William or Harry often get referred to as ‘Diddlyboing’ – which started as a corruption of ‘little boy’). It’s a wonder our pets respond to these names. 😀

    • Tiffany says:

      “Erp durs” is very nonsensical – more an utterance of their assumed (lack of) intelligence, than any meaning. As in dur-hee. I have no idea how we come up with these things, but once we do, they’re stuck forever.

    *sigh* Some day, I will put the work in to get my gang to all stay in one spot next to each other for a photo instead of crowding the camera with the “Hi Mom! Whatcha got? Can I smell it?” that I usually get. Funny, they sit and stay just fine as long as I’m not holding a camera.

    • Tiffany says:

      It was a complete chance of luck. I’d come around the corner with my camera, going to take pictures of that port bottle, and saw them sitting there all behaved. So I took a quick snap, and there you have it.

  4. This resembles a “pack” of guys sitting on next to the runway at a strip club. They want to cross the line and get to the “treats” but the bouncer is making sure the tongues are the only things wagging.

    This is a very lovely photo. SO much energy, so still.
