Who We Are

Monday, February 11, 2008


Hi everypuppy! It's me - Amber! Did you see the latest post our dear friend Pippin put up on her blog? She explained about "kinnearing", which is basically someone holding his or her camera at hip level and pretending not to be taking a photo even though he or she is! Mom thought this might be a good way to get a picture of me, since I'm not thrilled with the camera. This is what she came up with:

Yep. Like Pippin, I knew what Mom was doing the whole time. Maybe it only works for humans on other humans; Stormy said canines are smart enough to know what's going on.

It's not a bad picture, though I look a bit squinty. It's because of the sun reflecting off all the snow. Oh! And it's from last week. Most of our lovely snow is gone now - except for in the shade and where the snow plow piled it up!



  1. oooooh Amber, I got quite a thrill looking at your picture there, I thought you were winking at me!

    You are such a beautiful pup you know, the snow suits you so!

    My Jeannie is having a "re-think" she said to tell your Mama......

    She has been all out of sorts today but I think her re-think may be making her feel better.

    Viva Blogging! She has just shouted out, so who knows what will happen next! Viva La Blog! Marvin xxxxxxx

  2. Like the Pete Townshend album, all the best khowgirls have chinese eyes!

    Ha roo roo ROO!!

    And woo do look beeWOOtiful!!!


    PeeEss: Joe Cocker(Spaniel)! Phunny hunny!!

  3. Amber you look utterly swoonable. Mysterious, thoughtful and gorgeous. You will be my Valentine won't you?


  4. ::shaking head:: Amber, when will those humans stop trying to trick us?? We're just way too clever for that.
    Pee S - we're supposed to get a "wintry mix" tomorrow ending in ice. Mom thinks it's funny watching us skate around on the back patio.

  5. Amber,

    Your coat shows off beautifully next to all that white snow. I'm sure more will come your way soon. I used to be very camera shy, but just this last year I found out how much I can get from my humans when I allow them to snap a pic. Try it out!

    Wooo Woooo


  6. Thank you for alerting me to this scam. I know it would have been the next thing my mom would do to get a picture of my cute face.


  7. Amber, you look like you caught mom redhanded. You have a look on your face like you won't be fooled. Very cheeky, that mom is! Dunkin is onto our mom too about those cameras. he only shows one side, the brown eyed side. His other side is his alter ego blue-eyed side

  8. You look bewootiful!

    Kisses, Sky boy

  9. Hi Amber,
    We know how you feel about the camera issue and know that you would be too smart to fall for such a trick. But hey the photo turned out nicely!

  10. When the Human Assistant saw your pic he said, "Do ya feel lucky, Punk? Well, do ya?"

    He said that's from a Squint Eastwood movie.

  11. Hey Good-lookin'

    Glad your mom caught you in the act--aren't people with cameras just dangerous?

  12. Woo do look like you're winking, so cute!
