Photo Finish Friday

Tail wags, dear readers!  It's me - Stormy - here with Photo Finish Friday.  Before I get started, kudos to Fiona and Teddy for figuring out Ammy's pictorial riddle.  All the guesses were really great, but here it is - Dad's brother is currently posted in Iraq with the State Department and is coming to visit us for the weekend!  Get it?  Wednesday's photo was Ammy and a rock.  A rock ... Iraq ... ?!?  File any complaints with the Yammer; let's get on to Photo Finish Friday!

Dad was going to take the redheads on an extra walk the other day because it was sunny, chilly and just beautiful out.  That is ... he was going to take just the two of them until Dave and I laid a case of the guilts on him by doing the
Sad Eyes Look.  It's useless to try to resist us; all 6 of us headed out the door together! Mom tried to take some group photos; I've got the best of the bunch for you today!  Let's go!

On the home-stretch, Mom handed my and Dave's leads to Dad and jumped out in front to take some photos. Here's the best that she got:

Left to right:  me (Storms), Ammy, our dad, Zim, and Dave (in front)

Zim was checking for
Calico Kitty.  Dad thought the photo shoot would go better if we went past the house, then came back the other way.  Here's a look at how it went:

We're in the same order for this one; I have no idea what Ammy's looking at.

Not bad. Dad apparently took my
Cooperating for Photos 1 course, as he's totally not looking at the camera. Way to go, Dad!  He's looking at the camera in this one...

... but of course, none of the rest of us are.  

Almost everyone is looking in the general direction of the camera ("
general" being the operative word) in this next one:

I did say "
almost everyone", didn't I? Ha roo roo roo! This was so fun!

OK, OK -- we gave her a good one! Dad walked us past the driveway, then Mom caught us on our approach to go in for water and cookies:

Did someone say "

"Let's GO!"

Happy Friday, everyone!

  6. You all are doing a great job at not looking at the camera. What great pictures. Glad Dad has been trained well...

    Big Sloppy Kisses

  7. Mom can't imagine walking 4 dogs! She has enough problems with 2!
    Your sky is just gorgeous! What a beautiful day!

    Love ya lots
    Maggie and Mitch

  8. We're impressed that you four stay in your assigned spots while waiting for your mom to take photos! Did Zim find Calico Kitty?

  9. Great photos!! We think you are wonderful walking four dogs at one time!! Mom can't hardly handle one sometimes!! Have a great weekend! Lots of love, Holly and mom

  10. We hope your Dad's brother has a safe trip and enjoys his visit...Those photos are really great and beautiful; we are so impressed that you guys are so well behaved, your Dad is able to walk all 4 of you at once=that is really awesome!...We hope you guys have a fun weekend, gorgeous friends...kisses...Calle, Halle, Sukki

  11. Your Dad is soooo good taking you all for a walkie!
    Cooooookies! I want one... now!
    Happy Friday!
    Kisses and hugs

  12. I'm glad you pointed out that your dad was the tall one, because I wasn't sure.


  13. I think those are great pics of controlled chaos!! Haroorooroo!!!


  14. I think those are some great shots. It's hard to take a nice picture of one dog, let alone FOUR!

  15. That has to be the bluest sky we ever did see.
    We know the problems of walking two dogs and getting two dogs to look the same way!
    We can imagine the hard work your mom put into your photo shoot and we loved it.
    You are all looking great on such an awesome day.
    We hope your uncle has a great weekend - not sure about the joke!
    Martha and Bailey xx

  16. Happy Friday :-)

    You have nice sunny weather, not like hear :-(


  17. Good group photos, you guys! It is always hard to get the humans to cooperate. Enjoy the beautiful fall weather.

    Drools and licks,
    Minnie and Mack

  18. Uncle Soldier is in Iraq? Good for him. I hope he enjoys his visit home. Give him a smoochie for me.

    The photo shoot was fantastic! I kind of smiled seeing you all milling about and trying to show your best side for the flashy beast.


  19. The last photo... I seriously LOVE Storm trying to run the "pack"!!! Way to Go Storm!

  20. Yay! Mom's guess was right! (She grew up in Saudi Arabia, when she saw 'a rock' she knew where your Uncle was!) That aside, Mom is Most Impressed with the multi-dog-walking technique. She has enough issues with just me and Abby! ;-)
