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!

We are alive!

Mom has been a little under the weather (she's better now), so she's been slacking a bit on our bloggie.   Sickies or no, her camera has still been working away, so there are plenty of photos of us. And for those of you who are interested, Mom did together a little post with some tips for your humans who want to get better photos of you.  She'll be doing other posts with other tips, so stay tuned for that!

When Mom hasn't been working on building her business, and doing her day job, she's been spending lots of quality time with us.  Today was the best, because while she was recuperating from her sickies, we had a huge snow day, and we got to spend lots of time in the snow!

Happy snow dance!

This was our first new snow in a while, so we had a grand time with it.  But we managed to get in plenty of frisbee action last week when we had warm, slushy snow.

Yep, the Doodle Launcher still works!

In addition to our action photos, we (of course) posed for Mom.

And there was some indoor posing (with lots of treats for us...).

Mom says this picture makes it very clear that one of us got more of the Golden Retriever genes than the other of us.  I say one of us got more Goofadoodle genes....
Have a great week!
