A Winning Weekend With Eko

This past weekend was jam packed with fun and games, but unfortunately all the breaks did not go our way.

In my apartment Eko triumphed over this Michigan plush toy, but unfortunately ND could not do the same on the football field

And while Eko lent his skills to my kickball team as our mascot we somehow still lost our playoff game

But there was no time for moping.  It was a beautiful weekend and we got to cap it off with a trip to the annual Cultivate festival.  Outdoor, dog-friendly festivals will soon be at an end for the year so it was great to enjoy one of the last big events.

While I enjoyed the music, Eko enjoyed munching on a stick and soliciting affection from passerbys

I may have lost the games, but thanks to Eko I definitely won the weekend!

Oh, we are sorry for the game losses, but what a nice weekend it turned out to be for you two. Sweet Eko we bet you were the highlight and main feature for everyone the whole weekend. Those pictures depict a lot of fun, fun, fun and that’s the way to do it!! We think Will’s big baby is just tops! Hugs and nose kisses

We have a rotating cast of people kind enough to snap our photo. I met a couple friends at the festival who snapped those photos. Other times Emily will take them and other times I just ask whoever I can find.

Glad to hear Emily doesn’t have to do it all. Sounds like you go well relying on the kindness of strangers. At home, do you use a tripod and timer or remote shutter release?

I would be in big trouble without the kindness of strangers. Luckily finding someone to snap a photo has generally been easy.

At home it’s trial and error with a tripod/timer. I set the camera to take a bunch of photos on each timer, so if I frame the shot right ahead of time then usually one of the photos in the bunch will work.
