Photo (Outtake) Finish Friday!

Ha roo, pups and cool cats!  It's me, Zim.  Tonight is the season opener for the Kansas State University Wildcat football team!  As you know, we go to KSU for our veterinary care - so when they asked for photos of "pets" dressed in K-State purple for their FaceBook page, we got right on it!

Cammie's never done this before, but I'm used to this kind of  torment  entertainment.  I thought I'd share the "process" of how Mom does these photo shoots with you for Photo Finish Friday - sound good?  Let's let Cammie go first!

Out came the hat and some treats.


Well, that photo DOES show off all the KSU stuff on the hat really well! Not really what Mom was after though, Cam. Let's see that sweet, happy face of yours!

"Honestly.  There aren't enough Zuke's in the world for this."

Um... yeah. Mom decided to ditch the hat and go for a purple bandana for Cam.  I mean, c'mon.  This is Cam's first time!  She's totally new at this!

Let's give that bandana a go!


I hope no one had a mouth full of water when they saw that one.

"Do you REALLY want to know what I think of this?"


No. Better try something else, Mom. This just isn't flying!


MUCH better! Doesn't she look great?!?! And all set to cheer on the Cats!

Now ... about that hat!  Let me have a go at it!

"It's falling OFF again!!!!"

I look a bit startled there, don't I?  Yeah, well, the hat kept falling off!  I don't know what was different, but it wouldn't stay on my head.  Mom thinks my pupils look ginormous there and I guess she's right.  I'm not sure if it's because of the slipping issue or the fact that we had a BRAND NEW batch of Stinky Goodness Treats to reward my excellent modeling skills ... but I was all kinds of excited!

Mom thought we were as ready as we were going to be and suggested we move our party outside.

We ran into the same issue out there.

"Hey!  Who turned out the lights?!?"

No sweat. I'm a pro. Let's improvise!

"How's this?  The jaunty, playful look!"

Mom thought I looked  like the hat would stay on for more than a split second  exceedingly handsome and cool, so she moved out for the money shot.  Here's our final take:


Not bad, huh?

Have a great weekend, everyone, and GO CATS!!!

  1. OMC! You two made us giggle so much today! Love this post since we love both of you and we love the Cats too!

    PeeS: Yay for the Chiefs winning too!

  2. Hahahahah! Whenever our Mom tries to get photos like that of us, she ends up with a million out-takes where we are looking less-than-pleased with the process! Luckily, our Dad will usually rescue us before Mom goes TOO crazy!

  10. OMD those are pawsome!! The last one is the best, but I love them all. Cam, you looked kind of cool with the bandana around your ears only. We are Badger fans over here, so I am fearful for what is next for me. Wish me luck.

  13. Those human hats just aren't made for doggie heads and yet the humans persist on trying to balance them on our noggins and take photos. Zim, you've got the right idea, just freeze in place and get it over with. You're a pro.


  14. So excited it is college football season!

  15. Those are grreat shots! Cami looks so pretty in her bandana. Purple is really her color. But you, Zim... Siiiiiiiiiigh! You're so handsome in ANYTHING!
