Take the other day for instance. There I was, guarding the bed...
Zzzz... mmm, tuna ... salmon ... tilapia, mmm ... zzzz....
...when in comes the puparazzi.
Can I help you?
Oh, sure. I understand - I mean, I was doing a really good cute pose, but honestly - enough's enough!
Is she still there? I don't even want to look.
Me, rolling my eyes.
See what I put up with around here? Sheesh.
I sent Mom a mind-meld message that unless she wanted to see a little display of my handiwork rearranging the pillows, quilt, covers, etc., she might want to put the camera down and let me get back to my nap Guard Duty.
And that's how you get a little peace and quiet, pups and kits. Just remember - you are the ones in charge, not the puparazzi. Take control of the situation!

Those silly humans. They just never learn when to leave us alone! I bet they wouldn't like it if we disturbed them as much as they disburb us!ReplyDelete

I think the problem is that you are so bootiful!!!! Maybe you should mess with your fur or something???
Lots of Licks, Ruby
you ARE too beautiful to resistReplyDelete
Hi there Stormy!ReplyDelete
Our apologies but we have to say, you're too adorable in all those photos! Very difficult for your mom not to click away. Ok, let's stay focused... yeah, it can be annoying when you are happily zzzing away and you feel someone aka mommy snapping away. We'll try your tip next time.
Were you dreaming of tilapia?! You have some over there? That's really yummy!

Stormy, your eyes look sooooo sleepy, I have to go take a nap as soon as I finish this comment. I think your mom's bed NEEDS rearranging. It'll make it more comfy for you. I mean, HER. Or you.ReplyDelete
You look exhausted! Can't your mom see how tiring guard duty is?ReplyDelete
Thanks very much for the good advice Storm! You is so wise!ReplyDelete
LOL, Stormy you are funny, we shall definately have to try that one.ReplyDelete
Holly & Zac :-0)
We will keep your tips in mind. Thanks for sharing. You are beautiful and look so much like the pup M & D had for a long time.ReplyDelete
Wags & sniffs

guinness is doing just fine ;-)ReplyDelete
Good guard dog, Storm. Thanks for the tips on how to get rid of the papa rotties.ReplyDelete
hehe your a rebelReplyDelete
Woooos! Stormy! I think the guard duty is a little exhausting, but the puparazzi is even more exhausting!ReplyDelete

Hi Stormy, you are absolutely right - we need to be more assertive! How on earth are you supposed to get time to dream of all your favourite things?ReplyDelete
We are going to print off that determined look of yours and attach it to a flag!
You will become our assertive role model - not sure we can carry if off like you but we will try.
love and kisses
Martha & Bailey xxxx
The human puparrazzi are constantly ambushing us too. You do look awfully cute!ReplyDelete
Benny & Lily
Stormy, you work so hard at guard duty and I know you need your rest. Your people can't resist taking pictures of you because you are just so beautiful. I love the picture of you rolling your eyes!! After guard duty, get some rest!!!ReplyDelete
Stormy I know how you feel. But also how can yor mum resist that face.. She just has to snap away.. Hugs GJ xReplyDelete
Thank you for those wise words Stormy. I will try and put those into effect this week!ReplyDelete
Those humans are always interrupting aren't they? Pretty cute pictures though..ReplyDelete

Funny, but when we throw threats around, we get invited OUTSIDE. Now we like it outside and all, but somehow it is not quite the same.ReplyDelete
Excellent tips! I can see in your eyes that you were tired and obviously were not in the mood to put up with any antics. I think I will try this next time I am disturbed.ReplyDelete
I can see dealing with the puparazzi is really taking it's toll on you..you look so tired! Wish i could be there to assist in any way..perhaps pose on behalf of woo..?
Stormy, it seems we share being disturbed from our naps in common. It's because we are so gorgeous the beans can't help themselves I guess. Hope you were able to go back to sleep!ReplyDelete
Thanks for the tips!
But I agree with our friends... you are so beautiful! Sure is not easy for your mom to stop taking your pictures!
Kisses and hugs
I love seeing pictures of you guys, so I sure hope you begin to accept the flashie beastie very soon.ReplyDelete
We do need to talk to Martha and Bailey and see what they might think of a one day per week photo shoot. No more than that and maybe only half a day!ReplyDelete
Uh, Stormy, would you please tell Dave Ali Zophia is writing up Brazil for Saturday.
Wow! Your blog and your dogs are awesome!!! So beautiful! I'm thrilled to read it. I have an award for you guys! Email me at: email@example.com!ReplyDelete
Oodles of Love,
Founder & Keeper
Thanks for the lesson, Stormy! Mom is always bothering me when I'm on guard duty!ReplyDelete
It's like a Sibe mind meld right??? I will have to practice...and tell Bilbo... sounds like he might be better at it than me!ReplyDelete
Happy Birthday USMC!
We suffer at the hands of the pawparazzi here, too. It is not good. Not good at all.ReplyDelete
We can't seem to sneak up on Sam. He sleeps light, waiting for one of us to do something - hopefully get him a bone!ReplyDelete
Well Done Mr. Storm. Take charge of that bed and all other government property in view. And don't leave your post until properly relievd. OBTW: the U.S.M.C. (Happy Birthday; Semper Fi, OOOOOOHRA, etc.) is the only military service that was founded in a bar; seems kind of fitting though.ReplyDelete
PFFF... I don't get it.... my momster will NOT pose for the camera, but she expects me to be all cooperative when she's blinding me with the flashie beast?! Pfff... i'm going to find me a pink pillow to "redesign."ReplyDelete
HOW RUDE! Stormy... the puparazzi have no bidness interuptin' your hard work! threats of any kind under those conditions are completely acceptable.ReplyDelete
