Finally! A Post!

Mom says that we are to blame for not having a post last week.  She alleges that we held her down and demanded scratchies.  Our attorneys have advised us to make no comment, so while we can neither confirm or deny the aforementioned allegations, we will admit that there is the slightest chance that her allegations are not completely outside the realm of possibility.

So, what have we been up to the last two weeks, you ask?  Well, while the rest of the country has been dealing with Snowmageddon, we have been enjoying warmer than usual temperatures.

Which means lots of walkies, and lots of frisbee action.



Hi Mom!

Very nice ear flappage here!
Because the weather has been so warm, our snow has been turning to slush, which means Mom can throw snowballs for us!

Snowballs are PAWSOME!

In addition to all of the stuff that we have been doing, Mom has started photographing dogs and cats at the Salt Lake County Animal Shelter who are looking for the fur-ever homes. If you want to see some of her photos from her first shoot, check out this post on her photography site.  Mom goes back this Thursday, too, so she'll have more adoptable pet photos.  Because she is trying to get glamour shots to help the adoptable pets find their new homes, we let her practice her glamour shot photography on us.  And while we get a little miffed when Mom spends times with other dogs and cats, we don't mind her spending time at the shelter - she is doing good stuff, and we're really happy that her flashy beast is pointed at someone else for a change is helping other pets find their perfect families!

I don't know about this one - I'm not sure I'd adopt Abby with a photo like this!  Of course, I didn't have much say in her the first time around!   Heehee.  Just kidding Fluffs - I love you!
Finally, Mom has been busy working on her photography business, with getting samples in order, and trying to work with local businesses and stuff.   If you haven't checked out Mom's photography website, go check it out:  - she's got all sorts of pictures and even a blog post with tips on how to get your own stunning pet photos!

At the moment, Mom has her canvas samples scattered around the house as she tries to figure out the best way to transport them to show potential clients how much of an impact a 20x28 canvas of their beloved pet can be.  One of the samples has Abby on it, larger than life (don't worry, another sample has Abby and me on it, also larger than life).  Mom noticed this morning that Abby was in front of the canvas, doing her best to imitate the photographic art behind her!  Heehee!

And while I have a bunch more photos I could have Mom post, I'd really rather get belly scratchies. So just imagine a whole bunch more frisbee action photos here, while I roll over onto my back so Mom can best administer belly scratchies!

Have a great week!

Your mom takes wonderful photos. And wooo hooooo to her for helping our shelter friends. I keep telling we need to hook up for your mom to take my photo. Now that she is done with some school work (she passed by the way, much to her shock) we can set up a time. Enjoy those belly rubbins'. I think I will go get some myself.
