Another Week, More Activities of Daily Living

You'd think we spend all our lives being supermodels, given all the pictures Mom has of us.  Of course, we are supermodels, so I guess I'm just stating the obvious, huh?  Heehee.  Another week in the books for us, and we were Very Busy Conducting Our Activities of Daily Living.

There's no zoomies like snow zoomies!

Frisbee time is a very important part of our exercise regimen, and figures highly in our Activities of Daily Living.

As is tug-of-war.

We also did some posing for Mom.  Mostly because she always has treats in her pockets.  Hey, we are supermodels - we don't work for free, ya know!

Mom says this is one of her favorite photos of the week.  I think it is because of all that snow and blue skies!  If only a ginormous snooter weren't blocking the view!  Heehee!

Of course, this is also one of Mom's favorites - which I can completely understand!  Heehee!

Mom likes this photo, too, because Abby's eyes are so bright.  Personally, I don't know how come Abby isn't squinting with the sun in her eyes like that....  Mom says she does squint, but because Mom shoots in 'burst mode' (whatever that is) she can usually get one photo where Abby has her eyes open.  On the other hand, I don't like having the sun in my eyes at all!
Because there was much frolicking in the snow, there was much shaking off of the snow.  Mom is still working on her 'shake' photos.

As a total aside, my sister is a frisbee hog.

We also did some indoor posing because Mom has been moving the studio around.  Something about how where she had the backdrop didn't give her much room to back up and get full body shots of us, so she moved a bookshelf so she could move the bed (since the studio really is a bedroom with a bunch of photography stuff in it) so she could move the backdrop stand, so she could swallow the spider to catch the fly which wriggled and tiggled inside her.  *ahem*

Mom likes this.  It scares me a bit!

This was pre-furniture rearranging.

This is post furniture rearranging (Mom needs to extend the black backdrop out further...).

Mom even felt the need to photograph us she should have put the camera down so we could go on walkies.  I mean, we were already all harnessed up and Mom is still paying with her camera!

Hello?  The stairs are this way!

If I stare at the stairs long enough, maybe she'll get the hint...
All of these Activities of Daily Living can be a bit stressful.  Sometimes we just have to chill out a bit so we can deal with our high-stress lives...

Go away.  I'm de-stressing.

I'm de-stressing unless you have snacks.  Then I might be up for something.
Have a great week, and if you get stressed, take a nap!  It always works for us!
