Stormy and Dave's Photo Shoot

Ha roo, tail wags and meee-ow pups and kit-cats! It's me - Stormy. For reasons known only to us, Dave and I have been chumming around lately. You know, hanging out, napping, that kind of stuff. Together. More than usual. Mom is fascinated with this new trend and decided to take advantage of this by taking some pictures of us posing together. Posing? Ha roo, I think not.

Here's how the session went. Think of this as Cooperating for Photos 2, your next on-line class at the Stormy Zoluschka Kryschtal School of Siberian Studies.

For Photo 1, Mom told us to get next to each other and sit. I did the "next to each other" thing, but I wasn't going to sit. Neither of us would look at her.

Photo 1

She asked and asked and asked me to sit, so I decided I would. Only because I was getting tired. I moved away from Dave, of course. And still, we refused to look at the camera.

Photo 2

Dave wanted to look at Mom SO badly! He hadn't seen her in like 2 minutes and even though she was talking the whole time ("Sit, pups! Please!?! Stormy! Davy! Look at me! Sit!" and other nonsense), he didn't look at her and it was just eating him up. In Photo 3, I was telling him to resist the urge.

Don't do it, Dave. Don't give in!

See how sad he looks? It was hard for him, so I came up with an idea. I told him we should do an Eyes Left, and while diverting his gaze from one side to the other, he'd be able to see Mom in his peripheral vision.

That worked pretty well. In fact, well enough that Mom gave up. Sibes 1, Mom 0. Ha roo roo roo!

Tail wags,


  1. You are our heroes. We work very hard on on our SZKSSS Cooperating for Photos homework, but your mastery is stunning. We will continue to strive for perfection!

  2. Great work! You guys can't look too chummy or someone might think you like Dave!


  3. You still look incredibly beautiful, and Dave is still the MOST handsome boy ever!! LOVE the pics!!!

  16. My HuMom was unaware of this "cooperating for photos" class that I must have taken somewhere down the line. It drives her insane when I look away at the last moment or appear to look wilty in photographs. Now she understands.!

    AO4= excellent example of Sibe world domination! Woof!


  17. You guys are pawesome and a true inspiration!!!! I love photo 3!!

  18. Stormy, You and Dave are a pair. Love that opposite direction looks pose.

  19. What great pictures! Mom says we listen to you'all better than we listen to her. I have to make her post the photos that didn't work.
