Photo Shoot, BRO-style!

Ha roo, pups and cool cats!  It's me, Zim.  So... the other day, Mom wanted us to go out and do a photo shoot with her.  I wasn't all that keen on it (what with all that's been going on around here lately!), but then she said it was for a BRO contest!  Oh, not "BRO" like Dave is my bro, "BRO" like the "Big Red One" - the First Infantry Division!!!  COOL!  (Follow that hyperlink to learn more about the Big Red One!)

Our dad served in the Big Red One for a good number of years, so when Mom said they were having a pet photo contest, I was all for doing a shoot!  So was Dave!  The girls ... not so much.  I think you know how Stormy and Ammy are about wearing anything or posing in general!  Mom let them sit this one out.  Dave and I sure had a blast, though, and came up with three photos for the "got bro?" pet photo contest.  We couldn't decide what to post today, so I thought I'd share our entries with you!

No worries here - the voting is done by an anonymous panel of judges from the 1st ID.  We just thought you'd like to see them!

Here's the first one -

DSCN7122 - Version 4

I like that one. It's like Dave's got my six and I'm asking "got bro?" (That's their slogan right now.)

Here's another one:


Just me. I'm not sure why I look like I'm ready to fall over. Ha roo roo roo!

And here is Mom's favorite!

The 1st ID motto:  "No mission too difficult, no sacrifice too great, duty first!"  

Pretty cool, don't you think? I had a blast.

Oh... I know what you're thinking. Why aren't there more pix of Dave? Was I that well-behaved for Mom the whole time? Well ... the 1st ID patch didn't show up as well on the pix of Dave - Mom might do another shoot with him later. And as per the "well-behaved" bit ... err ... here's one of the "out-takes".


The out-takes were more fun than the others!  I'll let you know how we do in the contest!

Play bows and DUTY FIRST!


  1. You two deserve to win, you both look very cool in your pictures :) prrrrr

  2. You are both very handsome! Good luck in the contest. Keep us posted. I can't believe that there was any misbehavior during the photo shoot...

    Drools and licks,

  3. What lovely pictures for the contest. I bet the judges will be bowled over. I have to say that your mum's favourite is mum and mine too. Gorgeous.. Hugs GJ xx

  4. Fantastic pics! Love them all. You must win! This has an extra special meaning to me...My dad served with the Big Red One during WWII! Sadly, he passed away when I was just 13, but I've written articles on/about him and the Big Red One. My Mom served on the homefront in an arsenal, so as a result of them, I am a total WWWII history buff. Winning wishes coming your way - let us know how you handsome models do! We are out here rooting for you guys! Go Team Army of Four!
