    you might be in the dog house with your better half and sleeping on the couch but ,he don't care, he'll get up on the couch and snuggle up with Mr. gone-to-far.

    I read this thread title and immediately went to my pic folders on the hard drive of my laptop. It kinda surprised me, but I have no pics of Bella, our Bocker Speagle (Beagle/Cocker Spaniel mix), posed with any of my guitars. I'll have to remedy that.

    But then I saw the post by @adjason and not only did it give me a smile, it occurred to me that I could follow suit. No, I haven't composed a song for my dog, yet but I realized that in most of the few videos I've got of me playing, those taken in the last four years, anyway, Bella at least tries to upstage me. Now I just have to go back through my channel and find which videos are examples of this. Stay tuned...

    Oh, I just remembered camping trips! On camping trips, Bella photobombs me while I'm playing guitar. It happens a lot. Not really a posed thing, but it works for purposes here.

    This one I thought of right away. We were set up in the evening and as I almost always do after I've got the travel trailer parked and hooked up, I "christen" the campsite with some guitar playing. On this occasion, while I was playing, something spooked Bella. I think it was thunder. Bella hates thunder, and invariably comes to me, not my wife, for comfort when it thunders. I guess she figures I'm the alpha male, and it's my job to protect her.

    So this pic was spontaneous, not posed, but it sure turned out well. Oh, and the guitar is my 1953 vintage Harmony Broadway (model # H954).

    I don't have my pictures arranged/stored nearly neatly enough to find all of them and choose so I grabbed a couple from a Build Challenge threads...

    And a uke I built later

    And Sophia again, being more intersted in something other than a boring uke...

    Always good to see a picture of Bella. Our pit mix, Charli, knows a storm is coming before we do and she gets anxious (though not panicky), and comes to me in the same manner.

    That is a gorgeous old Harmony, too. My dad had one very similar which I learned on.

    Bowie with my Tele, a bunch of pedals and cables. He’s only 5 months old and hasn’t been allowed in my music room/office on his own yet.

    As I mentioned yesterday, the post by @adjason gave me the idea to look for a video of mine where my Bella is trying to upstage me while I'm playing guitar. Here are two such videos. (Just ignore my guitar playing abilities, or lack thereof.)

    The first is me playing "Star of the County Down" on my Wechter Nashville-tuned parlor on our back deck. My wife was doing the video, which meant Bella had her people with her in the back yard, the best possible scenario short of going for a walk or camping, and she wanted to be the center of attention.



    The other is me in my living room, demoing my 1953 Harmony Broadway archtop. Again, Bella tried to get in the middle of it all.

    Thanks. Yeah, what is it with canines and inclement weather?

    And thanks again about that Harmony Broadway. It's in great condition, especially given its years. We've both been around 67+ years, and it's aged better'n me.

    And I've said this before, but I too learned on my Dad's Harmony guitars. His archtop was an Archtone H1213, the entry level series of archtops in the Harmony catalog. The Broadway is a step or two up the ladder from the Archtone series, and I'm thrilled to have it as my birthyear guitar.

    I still would like to have an H1213 like Dad's. If I find one in good playable condition for the right price, I'll probably pull the trigger on it.
