A Dog Photo Contest on Valentine's Day

Some of you already know that our furiends at Bark.Sniff.Drool are doing a Valentine's Day dog photo contest via FB. I know, I got it, many of you don't care about the dreaded FB but I'm here to discuss The Photo-Session.
M, short for Momma and reminiscent of Bond, had been complaining today, ever since we got back from the pet store. All we got was some pizzle, some dog food, and IT, the reason for M's frustration. You see, M gets shopaholic tendencies only at the pet store, so she's come up with the term "bling" for anything that is unnecessary. IT was superfluous, IT was redundant. I shall now post some photos and ask you, kind furiends, to tell me, was IT really unessential? M got her answer alright.

We started the dog photo contest session with me. M's time was limited and she knew it. She used IT quickly before I knew what "wrapped" me.

Yikes! What's happening?

That's right, I'm winking. I'm DONE.

Lucky for M, she managed to get one more good shot, but for that, I need a drumroll.
Thank you!
The Shot

Within seconds, I had unwrapped myself, sparing my life. I ran to the adjoining couch as fast as I could but not without observing what happened next. The Brat (yeah, the chiweenie is just the Brat now) hopped on my couch and started posing. What a poser!
And then I had to listen to M: Yeah, that's right, great, you look hot baby, give it to me, tuuurn, excellent, look happy, look down, oh, wow, that's the shot... Should I go on? I think photos speak louder than words.

It was in the middle of the dog photo contest session that M all of a sudden saw the light. She actually put the camera down for a moment and with teary eyes exclaimed: "Sweetie, you love this. I'm so glad I got it!" Apparently, weird looking ITs from another planet are not considered bling any longer at my house.
Oh, How Cute!

Way to go, M. Not a bad dog photo contest shot, Frankie!
Now you know everything that transpired on my couch last night. As for what was going on on top of the pool table, some other time.

Oh my dawg... was that your mom I saw at the "meeting" last night for DUSSAA? (Doggie Unnessecary Stuff Shop-Aholics Anonymous) Cuz i have the SAME disease. Mr. Wild Dingo tries to cure me of it with idol threats "we will be in the poor house." "we won't be able to afford food or pay our heating bill." blah blah blah. he doesn't understand the NEED for these things. but i can stop any time. really. btw: where did you get that IT bling? I think i need one...
wild dingo
pee ess: CUTE shots! great photos!

BRUTUS said...

Hehehe! The hazards of being a photography subject! Just wait till you see what mom did to me for our BSD contest entry...believe me the snake is a better fate! That snake is pretty cute, I must say... Plus I'd looooove to chew off his eyeballs (very similar to the one I ate off the frog a while back!). Glad you didn't get constricted, Twink!!

I think you are sure to win the photo contest with those cute shots!

KB said...

Too much!!! You sure didn't look like you loved it Twinkie, but Frankie did. That doesn't look like a bling to me!

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

brooke said...

hehehe! that is pretty cute! Imagine, I'd need a real life boa constrictor size IT to get a picture like that with Darwin!

NAK and The Residents of The Khottage said...

Oh no!



Frankie Furter and Ernie said...

Darn, I saw the post title and thought you were going to host some kind of neat Valentine's Day Thingy. I'm not allowed to do those FB or T thingys.
Butt, I digress.
I truly LOVE Bling (A.K.A. IT ). You were very brave to let IT wrap you up like that. THIS Frankie would not want any part of IT.
You always have such interesting things going on. THANKS!!!

The Gang at LLB said... all have been BUSY!!

Those are some great pictures!!


houndstooth said...

I think you and Frankie both look adorable! I'm glad you escaped the clutches of IT in time!


Golden Woofs! SUGAR said...

Woof! Woof! You sure did a great job. LOVE your last photo with your paws crossed. Good Luck! Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

Tucker said...

Is Frankie biting that things tounge? I don't believe that these photos are appropriate for my teenage eyes, they can't be PG.

woof - Tucker

Martine said...

That snake was purchased at the pet store?!

You both look really good all wrapped up in the snake... don't think I could get the kiddlets to sit still wrapped in something like that!!!

xo martine & the kiddlets

Unknown said...

Sounds like Wild Ding and my M should both join Petcoholics Anonymous. Thank you for being happy I wasn't constricted, Brutus. Apparently, Frankie's indirectly asking for a Valentine's Day contest. My apologies to Tucker for shocking him. As for Martine: She summed it up pretty well. We did NOT wish to sit wrapped in IT, wise Martine. A huge Thank You to all of you who are happy to see that Frankie and I are still alive.

We think the Twink Wink shot is way better than any of Frankie's.

Play bows, Phantom and Thunder

Pee Ess, we'll try the crossed paws thing if you will too - "they" say maybe some snow on Friday.
