Behind The Scenes

Tail wags, readers - it's me, Stormy.  I loved reading all of your comments yesterday on our Wordless Wednesday post.  Many of you hit the nail on the head about what was really going on - I was giving Zim orders.  You see... Mom wanted to get some pictures of us "sitting nicely together".  Ha roo roo roo.  Like that's going to happen unless I want it to!  Zim started to cooperate - he can't help it:  he loves the camera and knows how to work it.  But I told him this wasn't the time.  Here's a little glimpse behind the scenes...

Don't do it, Zim!  Don't look at the camera!

Then Mom asked nicely.  So ... sure ... I'll look at the camera.  How's this pose?

Fine... I'll look at the camera...!

That's my grumpy face; pretty good, isn't it?  Thanks; I've worked hard on it.  Oh, but then I saw something across the street:

Fortunately, Zim was looking the other way, so it wasn't what Mom was going for.  Even so, it was more than I'd planned to give her, so I decided to jump Zim:

We had fun rolling around on the grass, doing the "arr-arr"s, and jumping on each other.

Gotcha, Zimmie!

And then... he had to do it!  He... he looked straight into the camera!

Hey, Mom!  How's this?  Going for the blue-eyed side?  

...so I had to do this:

I told you not to look at the camera!

Ha roo roo roo!  Oh, we had such a great time!  Even if he didn't quite follow my orders completely.  That's half the fun of it, though.

Tail wags,


  1. We knew our Stormy!

    PeeEssWoo: AND we knew our Zim!

  2. Hi Stormy
    We think you guys are very good at getting your pictures taken!
    You are right to be in charge though - you cant have these humans thinking they can just take pics when they feel like it!

  3. I thought Zim was too Zen to take orders from his Sister. And it looks like I am mostly right!


  4. That's our Stormy, always keeping the troops in line.

  5. ahhhh--no matter what poses you guys are in, they always look fantastic and we are so happy to see your beautiful faces!

  16. Zim just cant help himself. He is definately a mommas boy. Not that there is anything wrong with that. Mom gives us food!

    Your buddy,


  17. you two are a riot, I am always posing for the camera. he he

  18. Thanks for sharing the story behind the scenes!
    Kisses and hugs

  19. Poor Zim. It's a good thing he has you in his life, Stormy. (still, that belly shot of him is awfully cute. . . )

  20. We've been thinking....someday you should very cooperative and post for your mom. That would really confuse her and may result in a lot of treats.

  21. I was totally wrong about what was going on! You guys are a hoot!!

  22. Ha-roo roo roo! Great "grumpy face", Storms! I love this post - a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do to keep those boys in line!


  23. It's great to see the making of a post revealed :) Glad to know we all take a pile of pics to get the right shot - I thought I was the only one blowing my paycheck on camera batteries!

  24. Stormy, I think I need to take classes from you. Mom always gets me looking straight into the camera.


  25. Boys! They are just such trouble makers. They always want to look at the camera and be good for moms. Boys are lucky they have girls around to teach them how to behave properly.
