Sittin' Pretty

I love being a model. I will sit and pose and act anyway I need to for the camera BECAUSE the camera means TREATS - and lots of them.

Here are some of my most recent PHOTO SESSIONS:


Me and my Sisteroids. This took a lot of PATIENCE!
















This was at the dog park. It is one of my best.
















SEE! I'll do almost anything for a treat.

Chit Chat




HI Noodles, how're you doing today?

That's how Mommy always starts our conversations. And then she waits for me to answer her. . . and answer her honestly. Because my Mommy is like that. When she asks how you are, she really really wants to know.

So tell me about your day, did you play with Molly or just sleep the day away?

This is the follow up to how I am. And again, she expects an answer to the question. So I tell her about snoozing until 10am and then tossing a few toys around with Molly. Then we play a vicious game of Bitey Face, I tell her, and then we nap until you get home.

Doesn't sound like too much fun, she tells me. . . ah, but it IS Mommy, I tell her back.

What would you like for dinner today?

This always gets my ears bouncing, my step steppin' and my tail/butt wagging. Did you just say FOOD, I ask? Why I would like a bowl of delicious kibble, please. And if you still have those frozen haricots verte I would like those as well. Maybe cut them a little smaller so I can savor them longer.

Noodles, are you my GOOD girl?

I wouldn't have it any other way, Mommy. Not for the world.


HAPPY THING #49: Chit Chatting with my Mommys

Like a Colorful Carpet



I did a lot of this over the weekend. Sitting and waiting for Mommys. They were out and about doing their things while I waited and waited.

When Mommy #2 came home she smelled faintly of flowers - wildflowers. She had gone to the Sunol Wildflower Festival and hiked around trying the identify the myriad wildflowers everywhere. She said it was such a wonderful day and the weather was perfect. She had thought of bringing me but did not because she thought it might be too warm for me. She also mentioned some scary things like ticks, snakes and tarantulas. I suspect they scare her more than they scare me.

Mommy's LAME photo of  SOME flower

As usual, Mommy did not take her camera. She says it takes lousy photos and besides, she was meeting Auntie B and SHE takes wonderful photos. As LUCK (??) would have it, Mommy and Auntie B never actually FOUND each other although they both spent the majority of their time looking and waiting. So Mommy took a small hike with a group of strollers and family with small kids. She didn't think it would matter, at the time. The people, although friendly, were not really interested in listening to the docent speak about the flora in the surrounding meadows. In fact, they were only excited to SIT in the meadows and have their family photos taken while surrounded by said wildflowers (and ticks, I might add). And she cannot tell you how many fathers let their wee ones PICK the flowers. . . all in all, there were a lot of starts and stops for waiting on toddlers and not a lot of wildflower hunting. Of course, one did not really need to hunt them at all for the flowers carpeted the hillsides so completely and colorfully. It was halfway up the hill when Mommy realized she wished she had a camera. So she took the first flower picture on this page with her phone - which was no good for anything else since there is no phone reception in the park.

 Auntie B's photos, shared on the left, are very different from Mommy's. She used a REAL camera with big lenses. The colors are so rich and it almost seems like you can reach out and pick the flowers. And Auntie B took off on a hike by herself where she found a lot more flowers than Mommy did. That was fortunate.

Finally after NOT finding Auntie B after 3 hours of looking, Mommy headed back to our abode.

When she got home, she spent a lot of time with me cuddling and snuggling. She made up for abandoning me for half the day. And the B-A-T-H? Yes, both Molly and I got one which actually made me feel a lot better than I thought it would. And the pawdicure made walking a lot quieter.

Sunday I spent ALL DAY out in the back yard SUPERVISING Auntie T doing yardwork. Someone needs to let her know how far back to trim the bushes! The weather was nice and warm but there was also a cooling breeze that kept it all so FINE.

T.G.I.F.

It's FRIDAY!!!! Whew! I thought the day would never get here. You DO know what Friday means, right?
It means tomorrow the mommys are home and I get lots of extra CUDDLES and ATTENTION. I heard a rumor that I will also be getting a B-A-T-H; but that is another worry for another time.

Do you have any big plans for the WEEKEND? I plan to

  1. Look for Butterflies
  2. Sit in the morning sun
  3. Watch my Mommy try to knit with me on her lap
  4. Smell the yard
  5. Feel the breeze ruffle my fur
  6. Go to the Dog Park
  7. Greet people at the door
OMP! The list goes on and on. Have a great weekend EVERYPUGGY!
