Happy Thanksgiving!

One of the best things about Thanksgiving is that Mom has a 4-day weekend, so we get to spend lots of quality time with her.  Of course, Mom's idea of quality time includes taking out the camera (shocker, huh?) and taking photos of us. Since snacks are always involved, I really can't complain too much.

Anyway, yesterday Mom got some photos of us in the morning (and by us, on the first try, I mean the youngsters, as they are crazy and I though snoozling on my couch was a vastly better plan than going outside with the crazies!).

Complete nutters.
Mom also took the opportunity to take some ginormous snooter photos.  Because, well, why not?

GINORMOUS snooter!

Once I thought the youngsters had some of the crazies out of their systems, I thought I would try joining them, but I didn't really completely trust them. I mean, I live with these two - they are nuts!

Fine. I will sit for this photo, but I'm going to distance myself from these two because they are nuts!
Luckily, Mom did not find the need to attempt to make my snooter look anything more than perfect!

Yep - I'm as stunning as ever!
This morning Mom brought out the camera again.  I have to say Lucy-Fur and Daisy are such sisters (the Crazy Sisters).

And then Mom brought out the flashy part of the camera and took more photos (and dispensed more snacks).

Does this look like a sane dog to you? Yeah, not to me, either!

Still completely crazy. (Mom doesn't keep a short leash on her for nothing!)

I, on the other hand, look dignified.

Yep, I'm still looking dignified!
Then, Mom thought she'd go back to her sunburst attempts.  After a variety of tries, she thinks she's mostly nailed how to do it (apparently removing the filter on the lens got rid of some of the lens flare - whatever all of that means!).

I can help, Mom, as long as I keep looking dignified!

Daisy is clearly the craziest looking of all of us!

And Lucy is More Than Willing to pose for snacks!
Happy Thanksgiving, and happy weekend!

We finally got our first 'real' snow of the season.  While I am enjoying it, I am particularly enjoying the fact that the youngsters aren't really bugging me!

Although I did have to show some solidarity with Daisy - how else is the little one going to learn? And no, Daisy didn't actually catch that frisbee, first!
And the youngsters did seem to enjoy themselves.

Crazy snow zoomies!

Her leggies need to get a little longer before she can actually 'zoom'.

I have no explanation for this. None whatsoever.

She is quickly learning the 'looking cute in the snow' thing.
Yep, even I will admit that she's kinda cute!

Crazy Cakes.

Still crazy!

Yep, she's totally doing the cute thing!

For the record, Mom was being mean; Daisy had picked up one frisbee off the ground and Mom through it would be funny to throw another one to her. Okay, maybe that WAS funny!  Heehee!
Today after the morning walkies I was having a slight snooze when the kids went outside with Mom, where Mom became fascinated with the sun. Mom said after she took the photos, she came inside and read about how to take 'sunburst' photos, so she's hoping for clear skies again tomorrow!

Mom is rather pleased with this photo, even if it doesn't have a clear sunburst - she liked the smug look on Lucy's face.

And don't worry that there aren't many photos of me - Mom only took photos outside once today, and I was snoozing. But there will be photos of me, just not today!

Lucy-Fur's Five Month Photos


Yet again, my couch has been invaded by the Demon Dog and her not-so-little sidekick, Bellifluffica (aka Lucy-Fur.... as an aside Abby's nickname 'Fluffica' came from Bellifluffica, which Mom thinks is the Roman name of the goddess of belly button fluff.... I think Lucy-Fur is truly a Bellifluffica, not so much because of belly button fluff, but because she's got a bit of a belly on her!).

Lucy-Fur is five months old today, and so it was That Time Again.

"Scotty, or someone, anyone - beam me up!" And yes, I'm trying to get as far back on the couch as possible.
Seriously, Invasion of the Couch Snatchers....

Here is Bellifluffica's 5 month photo.  Yep, she's a little Lard Butt.  (It's the Prednisone she's finally getting weaned off of from the Puppy Strangles - but it has made her a little, uh, full-figured...)

If you can't read it, she weighs 39 lbs, and can 'beat the puppy strangles and do yard zoomies' and she loves 'hiking, zoomies, Mom and Dad, bitey-ing Daisy, my sisters, and peanut butter'.  (I do approve of her desire to bitey Daisy.)

And the head-tilt photo....

And for reference, here is her 4 month photo...

Good grief! She's gained 11 lbs in a month!!!

Shockingly, I look as thrilled in this photo from last month as I do in this month's photos...
Have a great week, and be happy that I have my couch back!

Yeah, so, it's that time again - time to have our furs stolen.  Admittedly, we were all getting a little shaggy, and Little Miss Tumbleweed was most definitely in need of a haircut.

Here is Lucy-Fur's 'before' photo - a true tumbleweed!

And here she is, as a groomed tumbleweed!

She's still a bit of a widebody (it's the prednisone - she'll lose her pear-shape!), but even I have to admit that she's pretty cute!

Daisy and I are also both looking quite stunning! (Okay, Daisy still looks a little nuts, but a groomer can't do much about that!  Heehee!)
