Will Pose For Treats

Hello, everyone!  It's me, Cam.  Yesterday, I mentioned that for my special time with my mom we walked around our gardens and I did some posing.  She is very happy with these photos, as I am looking at the camera and everything. She needs to keep in mind -- she had Zuke's Skinny Bakes in her pocket.  Lots of Zuke's!  It was awesome.  Let's take a look!

Here I am by the Russian Sage in the Bee Garden:

"Do you have the pumpkin-sweet potato ones?  I love those."

They are seriously tasty!  Sadly, they can be broken in half quite easily ... but I digress.

Here I am in the Friendship Garden, by the Beth Coneflowers:

"I think this pose warrants a whole one, Mom.  Really."

How can she say "no" to that face?

We moved on to the middle tier - and I sat down by the Lavender.

"How's this, Mom?"

That's Mom's new favorite photo of me. And Zuke's pumpkin-sweet potato are my favorite treat. Coincidence? I think not.

By the time we made our way over to the Daisies, I was all smiles!

"Can I tell you something?"

"I love these daisies!  They make me smile!"

... so does getting treats.

Our Purple Emperor Sedum is already getting big, even though Mom had trimmed it way back! Check it out:

"Is this a wrap?"

Mom decided rather abruptly to end our session right there -- except for that front porch pose with Mags.  Why?  Well ... you might notice I'm without my leash.  Mom had it draped over her shoulder for "just in case".  "In case of what," you might wonder.  Well, just as she snapped the photo above, Mom heard something then saw a baby bunny go flying out of the sedum right behind me.  For some reason, Mom decided to it was time for us to go.  Quickly.  I didn't even have time to give chase to the bun-puppy before she hooked me up.  Since she was still packing a few Zuke's, I was cool with that ... but I have to wonder -- whose yard is this anyway?!?

Oh, well.  Great session; great treats!

Cammie!

Porch Pose, Take 87

Hello, everyone!  It's me, Cammie!  As most of you know, our mom is always trying to get us to pose while she takes photos - and quite often it's by the planters on the front porch.  This morning, Maggie had some special daddy-daughter time, so Mom and I had some special time together, too!  Some of that time was spent walking around the backyard.  There may have been some posing involved.  And that posing may have been made possible by a supply of Zuke's treats Mom had stashed in her pocket.  It was very fun!

After we had our special time in the yard, Mom thought we should get Maggie, then us girls could try to pose on the porch.  Again.  Since I was well-aware of the treat situation ...

"Smile, girls!  C'mon, Mags!"
"Cam, are you SURE she still has treats?"
"Oh, I'm VERY sure!  How's this, Mom!?!?"

Maggie is a wee bit on the skeptical side!  We all know Mom is going to keep going until she gets both of us to smile for the camera.  I'm OK with that ... as long as she keeps the treats flowing!

Cammie!

Attempted Cover-Up

Hello, everyone.  It's me, Cammie.  What?  Have I seen Maggie's camouflage Wubba?

"Nothing to see here!"

Now why would I want her Wubba when I'm clearly spending some quality time with Fishy?

...

OK, fine; I admit it!  I was trying to cover for her, and I took matters into my own paws.  And I took the Wubba into my own paws.  Mom seemed to know anyway, despite my attempted cover-up.

When I was done playing with Fishy, I gave Mom both of the toys. This is what the Wubba looked like:

My sister's handiwork

Mom had to sneak it into the pantry to get a shot of it.  A certain strong-toothed, strong-jawed someone wanted it back.  And she wanted it back baaaaaaaad.  

The powers are strong in Maggie. They are very strong!

Cammie!

I Meant "Mom" ...

Greetings to all!  It's me, Maggie.  So there we were at dinner the other day, when ...

"Excuse me, waitress.  My bowl seems to be empty ..."

Apparently, it's not one of those Endless Kibble/Bottomless Bowl deals.  Oh.  And apparently I shouldn't refer to my mom as the waitress.  Who knew?

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher

The Importance Of Cookies

Hello, everyone!  It's me, Cam.  You'd think our mom would have learned by now!  To keep this short and concise, let me just show you the lesson we repeated the other morning.

Before:

IMG_0430MagsCamPose
"Hey, girls!  Look this way!  Girls!  Mags?  Cam?"
"Not feeling it, Mom."
"I don't think so."

And after:

IMG_0433MagsCamPose
"I have cookies!"
"Why didn't you say so to begin with?!?"
"How's this, Mom?"

As I said. You'd think she would have learned by now! Cookies are vital to getting us to pose!

Cammie!
