Photo Shoot Fail

Well Barbara has been trying to get nice photos of us for our Christmas card and it has been a disaster. Her bright idea was to wrap a big box and have Ambrose and me sit in it together. No way am I sitting in a box with Ambrose and getting his adolescent boy cooties on me.

Then she thought we should sit on the grooming table together wearing our new scarf Santa Claus bandanas from Jing-a-ling Dog Bandanas. But I still had to sit too close to Ambrose. Do I look happy??

On a much nicer note my Golden Retriever friend Amiga came to visit me today at our training center. It is her birthday and she is 14! Even though her face has turned white she is very active and playful.

We ran around together and I let her play with all my toys. We are in the Drill Team together and Amiga still performs with great energy and enthusiasm. Her people adopted her from Golden Retriever Rescue when she was two and have done lots of training classes with her. She is a lovely, sweet and talented friend.

In other exciting news local paper ran a story about Barbara on Sunday. It is a good article but I would have liked it better if they had put my picture in it instead of Barbara working with some puppy. You can read it here.

I know what you mean about those cooties! Ever since our DOHs brought home little sister, I've not exactly been happy with the whole younger pup issue. That is a good picture of you though! Happy Howlidays!

Not to mention she even mentions dumb Ambrose too. Sorry about that up close touching stuff she made you do. Ick.

I love that shot with your flying ears, Niamh!

Too bad about the photo shoot. Your Mom's ambitious! #1 never even tries with us...

Amiga looks lovely!

Amigo sure looks like a lot of fun for 14..
Great story Barbara...

I know your pain! Mum wanted me to sit right next to the rabbit-dogs and Penny for my photoshoot!

It's super cool to find Barbara's photo in the article!!

Happy Holidays!

I love that sli-i-i-i-ight lean in the top photo -- a dead giveaway that someone's having her personal space invaded...!
