I usually hate photos of me but a fellow Uker from our weekly Saturday set at the farmers market took this today. Harry, played his part by keeping my lap warm.

I brought his bed along with me as I knew the concrete would be cold. He just wanted to be up where the action was. He's a very well treated dog.

Man, he is a good dog. Mine would want to lick everyone. Oh yeah, nice looking Boat Paddle too!

Oh, Harry licked everyone earlier. Especially those that gave him smoked sausage.

Yay for that lovely uke, that sweet pup, and for you! And smoked sausage just seals the deal! My dog would howl at a performance - he thinks everything is about him!

What a sweet picture, Hollis. Your pup has a very nice life. :) I think dogs love hearing music... whenever anyone in my family starts playing an instrument, the dogs lie down nearby and zone out.

I had a few of these straps made up for me by Italis Straps in the USA (http://www.italiastraps.com/ ) They regularly run 2 for 1 sales. Very, very soft leather in a variety of colours. I used to have them on my guitars but wider. What I did was to have them lengthen the thinner component of their existing design.

Thanks Natlie, our four kids think we think of Harry as our fifth child. I think they're right.

Nice lap dog. Is he a Laporador retriever?

I begged Tammy to bring her poodle to our ensemble practice, twice (she feels guilty leaving him home) so she did, and both times he peed all over the hosts' patio, so I don't think he's coming with us again.
I had a Shetland Sheepdog named Ginger many many years ago, lost her in a divorce. I've been a cat person ever since.

Ah, there's a face behind all those posts emanating from Down Under.

When I play, the dogs put their paws over their ears, not under their chin. :drool:

Great pic Hollis. What is the Uke you are playing? Is that a tuner at the top?

Lenny,
That's my Boat Paddle ML Tenor with one of the newish TC Electronic polytune tuners (which I tend to favour over my Peterson).
