Posing for the Camera

Ha roo, pups and cool cats!  It's me, Zim.  I hope all of you had a wonderful Christmas!  We had a great day, chock-full-o walks, play time, naps, snacks - the usual, only more festive!  Anyway, Mom has been trying to get a "good" (?) picture of me and Dave by some of the Christmas decorations or tree -- you know - together.  Sitting still.  Looking at the camera.  That kind of thing.  It's asking a lot, but after one of our afternoon walks, we decided to give it a go.

We decided we'd pose in front of the fireplace.  Check it out!

I thought that was mighty good, but Mom said she wanted more of a close up and besides, there are marks in the carpet where she had moved the ottoman. (You see what I'm dealing with here, right?)

We let her move in a bit - oh, yeah, did I mention she had treats for us?

"Treats?!?  Mom's got treats, Zim!"

Mom thought we looked way too serious there and asked, "Oh, come on, boys!  Can't one of you smile, please?"  Then she mentioned the "treat" word again.

I flashed her my best...

"Treats?!?  Mom's got treats, Zim!"

...but Dave was kind of singularly focused.  On the treats.  Did I mention Mom had some?  Ha roo.

We each got another treat for our pose - then noticed they were the last ones in Mom's hand. Hmm.  Must mean the work session was over.  All that holding still was mighty difficult - and we were ready for some down time.

"Let's play!"

We hope you enjoyed your day as much as we did!

Play bows,
Zim

  7. We don't get that posing or sitting still bit either. Isn't that why the flashy box has a sports setting? We do like your pictures, though, Zim! Be careful, Dave, you will bore a hole in your readers' heads!

  8. Davy, those must be really good treats! You both looked very handsome in all those photos and we're glad the photo session ended in play time!

  9. We have the same problems with our boys. Sam is more than happy to sit, but Monty requires a house full of lawyers and several contract negotiations before the photo shoot actually happens!
