Snooter Hanging, Day One

Greetings, everyone! It's me - Mom of the Ao4. I feel really honored that Stormy turned the blog over to me for the next four days. Thank you, Storms; I'll try my best to do you proud!

Many of my fellow owned-by-Siberians friends have asked how in the world I'm able to get the guys to do the "snooter hanging" as seen at this link. It's really pretty simple, though there are important steps to follow! Let's get started!

Obviously, the first step is to grab your camera. Digital - because you're going to have to do a lot of snapping to get "the" picture. Next, grab some irresistible treats (I recommend Happy Hearts Dog Cookies, made by the mom of Maya Marie, Missy and Bella!) and a gorgeous model.

Step one: camera, bribes, gorgeous model (Stormy!)

Show your model the treat, tell her, "Wait!", and bring the object you want to hang on her snooter close. (In this case, I'm using my newest Hold the Phone! Bag.) As you slip the object over her snooter, hold the treat up, so the object won't slip off. Lightly hold the snooter, too, as your model might not be thrilled with what you're doing.

OK, there's a real good chance she won't be thrilled with what you're doing. Umm...

OK. We need to back up. I'm going to have to change Step One to include camera, bribes, and gorgeous model who isn't teaching her own on-line classes about NOT cooperating for photos! Please join us tomorrow for another attempt.

Thanks for reading! Tomorrow will go better, I'm sure of it!

  1. Awww! Where are the treats? I want to see some treat eatin action!

    I wonder if I can teach my mom to teach me that...

    Love & Licks,

  2. Woo there Storms~
    Nice of you to let the biped have some blog time. Whilst I believe that my Mom will love her classes, I certainly continue to pick up on your brief, but ongoing tutorials on not looking at the camera. I don't know why they think that shini thing with a mouth in the middle of it with one eye that flashes is something that we realli want to look at more than once. I anxiousli await watching you work her for those delicious Happy Heart Cookies.
    Your pal,

  3. Stormy! You are one Gorgeous
    Model! You keep showing your Mom
    just how its exactly done, I think you are doing a fine job!

  6. Oh my, I don't think we could do that here. I would have to stop and kiss that cute snooter a hundred times and I would never be able to leave the item hanging for long. :)

  8. WOO WOO Stormy's Mommy

    Marco and I continue to work on previous lesson of not looking at the camera. We don't think we are ready for new stuff with the Snooter yet but we will stay tuned.

  9. Alrighty then! I liked that course....it wasn't painful at all. I need to find Mom so we can practice. Harrrooorroorooo!
    Pee S: Way to work it gorgeous model!

  10. That snooter is just so cute it really doesn't need any adornments, but anything for a Happy Heart treat:))

    Woo, Thunder

    Pee Ess, Mom says she has some idea of something to hang on my snooter. Rut roh, something tells me I won't like this.

  11. Great job Stormy!!! I thought it was weird that your Mom chose you to be the model. you are very beautiful, but like she said you just taught dogs all over the world how not to cooperate for photos!! hehehe

  12. Are you sure yor mom wont break your blog? Or let squirrels in?

  13. Mom tried to do that to ME -


    The word is TRIED!!!

    PeeEssWoo: You are such a great sport!

  14. I really like the first photo of Stormy, you know, where she's in the background of the photos. I've seen that look in her eye before... right before she refuses to pose for you.

    Maybe you should consider my BPP Zim as a model instead?

  15. Maybe if I get enough treats I could learn that!
    Kisses and hugs

  16. Well, nice try! I am sure you will do better tomorrow ;)

  17. Poor Stormy,
    You do not look happy in the last picture. But for Happy Hearts cookies, I'll do just about anything.

  18. Storms,

    What is the human thinking? Really? We do NOT pose with props. Didn't she type your lessons?

    You are doing a great job! Keep it up. What's a gorgeous model making these days?

    Loving Life,


  19. Stormy look so pawsome always.. I wish I can hang stuff on my snooter too

  20. Strike a pose, Stormy! You manage to look dignified even with the bag hanging off your nose!


  21. Ohhh, our favorite is photo no 2. That is priceless. I hope you got a treat after that one too!
