Photo Shoot and More

Thank you to my Scottish friends the Dughallmor Beagles for this lovely award created by Crystal at Memoirs of a Mommy.
It is beautiful.

Well we are a little behind here and so finally Barbara arranged to do a photo shoot for my Christmas card. Since she is not that good of a photographer (as you can see from some of the photos on my blog) she asked my boyfriend Trotter's person Chris to take the pictures. I am always so happy to see Chris as she always makes a big fuss over me and of course when I see Chris I get to see Trotter too.

Unfortunately before I could play with him I had to pose for all these pictures. Very boooooring. Standing and sitting still is so dull when there is a nice big fenced yard to run around in. It didn't take too long and here is a picture from the shoot. I think I look pretty nice and I didn't even have to have a bath! Then Trotter and I got to play for a little while.

My boyfriend Royal's person is a dog trainer too. Her name is Jenn and she was on TV tonight. The local CBS station WRAL had a Bad Dog Challange and Jenn was one of the trainers picked to help a young Sheltie with problems. Jenn really shows how positive training can help. You can check out the video of Jenn and Mali the Sheltie here.

Here is a photo of Royal and me hanging out at the dog park.

I am off to Drill Team practice now. Our team is going to be in 2 Christmas Parades in December and we want to look good.

That was a beautiful picture, Niamh! You may say that your hooman doesn't take the best shots, but you always look gorgeous in every picture!

Hi Niamh,

You have a great photo for your holiday card. Sandi needs to get started on ours!

I really enjoy our drill team practices. It's fun to see my other dog friends and practice our moves.

We watched Jenn tonight on TV, too. She did a very good job helping the Sheltie (and training her person).

Your friend, Ayla

Hi Niamh,

I hate the sitting still for the photo sessions too. So boring, when all I want to do is have fun and play! You and Trotter sure do look like you are having a great time!!!

Your pal,

That's a good picture. Barbara sounds like a nice doggie trainer. When Arrow was barking too much my mom got a man to come over. He showed her how to get him to stop. He tried to teach us other stuff. But we were scared of him. I tried to bite him when he came back and my mom didn't feel good doing what he said-- so we gave up on Bark Busters. We like hot dog training better.

Happy Thanksgiving.

Happy Turkey Day. Hope you all have a wonderful one...
