Photo Finish Friday: Dual Portraits

Woo, everypup and everycat.  It's me, Dave.  Have you been following the saga at all about our mom trying to get a "nice" picture of me and Zim together?  I think when we last mentioned it, we were at Team Siberia 2, Mom 0.  We thought we'd show you some more of the process today for Photo Finish Friday.

Here's what Zim and I thought was a nice shot of us relaxing together in the living room:

Apparently that wasn't quite what Mom had in mind.  Something about wanting us closer together.

She thought maybe outside would be better, and tried to get us to pose in front of the Yew bushes.  Hmm.

Have we mentioned there's something in there lately?

Anyway, we ARE close together there, but Mom thought maybe we should actually look at the camera.

"Oh, Mom ... please!"
"I am soooooo bored!"

Sure, she had treats... but sometimes treats just aren't enough!  We totally lost our focus.  And yet ... she tried again.

"Is that a squeaky toy, Mom?"
"Hey ... whatcha got, Mom?"

Yep.  She was holding up a squeaky toy!  She's never tried that one before!  Tricky, Mom!

OK, so she got what she wanted in that last shot ... but I think it's probably Team Siberia 87, Mom 1.  Ha woo.

Happy weekend, everyone!



  1. we think you two are pretty handsome no matter what - but we do like that last picture. go mom!!

  2. Wow, you really made your momma work for that shot! BOL! It's good not to let them have what they want too easily. It forces them to be creative. Now you got a squeaky toy prize!

  3. Well funny guys. Mum had to tie you to the door and resort to underhand tactics like squeaky toy. Me I just pose get it over and done with, have my treats and go for a well earned nap. Treats for old rope I say. Have a fabulous Friday.
    Best wishes Molly

  4. I rather like and MOM agrees, we really like the 2nd to last shot. And I also think it is good to help the mom's be creative. Keeps them, guessing, keeps, them on their toes, keeps them young. Keeps them buying or better yet making treats for us. So really everyone wins.

  5. And TEAM SIBERIA WINS the Match!!!
    Peeps.. they will never learn.. it is just like with them THINKING that they will get some Cards to really COUNT and MOUNT UP.. in December..

  6. Well I'm glad your mom persevered and finally got a nice shot of you two handsome boys. Thanks for cooperating.


  7. Persistence paid off for your mom even though she cheated with the squeaky toy. We love your photos boys!

  8. I must be crazy but I think any pics you guys are in are great.

  9. Hi there friends, I love these shots-you two are so photogenic. I had just decided to take a squeaky toy to dog training to see if it would work. I also just read about special treats that are called puppycrack that work wonderfully.
    Stay inside and warm this weekend.
    Hugs, Noreen

  10. A squeaky toy isn't bad. Wait til she starts talking in a high pitched voice like tis one

  11. My Vickie wanted me to ask you to help your mom out to take pictures of the two of you together cause she wants to see a beautiful close up of both your faces together.

    Especially showing your wonderful eyes, the windows to your soul.....and stuff like that.


  12. You are both so handsome and you have such beautiful furs. It is a really nice picture of the 2 of you at the end. You have to let them win once in a while. It makes them happy.

    Loveys Sasha

  13. Those together pictures are tuffies! Our mom is forever trying to get one - something about a new profile pic! Thanks for the heads-up on the squeaky toy, Dave and Zim!

    Love ya lots,
    Mitch and Molly

  14. Hello there Zimmie and Davey!

    That photo of the 2 of you is indeed a winner! It's funny though how your Mom has tried so many creative options to get you guys to pose together. Piappies Mom has only gotten 3 or 4 of us to stay still in a photo. Still not a perfect shot. BOL

    Shall we see your photos with the squeaky toy soon? Let's go play!

  15. Oh! Your mom is just so smart. I can't believe she finally got one.

    squeee! My Mom would often use a squeeky toy instead of liver treats in the show ring to get just that reaction from her Crusty and Rose...those ears up are pawsome...just sayin'...paw hugs, Savannah
