Christmas Card attempts

Mom tried to get some pictures for our Christmas card. We didn't really feel like participating...

I am trying to see if Doofus is sucking up and posing nicely...

How about winking, is that acceptable?? (Mom said she thought I was winking at Sophie, but I am keeping my mouth shut!!)

Argh, I have other things to be doing right now!!!!

Even the Doofus participated in the picture ruining, he learned something for once! (I am still afraid of that creepy wandering eye of his!!)

Don't worry, Mom got a good one so we will be shipping out our cards very soon!!!

Tomorrow...Monday night football has MY Steelers playing the PITIFUL Dolphins. If the Steelers lose I am not getting out of bed until next weekend!

LOL....We've been through the same thing at our house ALL day today!! But the good news is that Mom just uploaded our finihsed photo to the printers....Yahoo.

We don't watch football at our house so we are hoping the Steelers win just for you all.

Love, Seadra and Zoe

Being a model is certainly the toughest job on earth. I am glad that your mum has got some pics that she is satisfied with and you do not have to pose for too long. Are you going to show us your christmas cards?

Hi Joey,
Can you believe it.. I still don't have a paw-fect pic yet (hey, and I always thought any pic with me in it will be pawfect).. I think the torture session for me is sometime this week.

Lots of Licks, Ruby

Hey Joe, I hope your Steelers win because it's so great when your team wins. My team won tonight. They won the Grey Cup, which is our version of the Super Bowl, but with a smaller budget. It's a huge deal in Canada, and maybe is for some of you guys since most of the players are American. My team ROCKED!!!!!! They kicked butt! They were awesome. Woo hoo!


P.S. Thanks for the wink ;)

Hey Joe Stains, want to make your human feel better? Tell him that our Manservant is an Eagles fan!!! Dawg, he was cussin' in his sleep all night last night.

If treats are involved in the photoshoot, keep making funny faces so they keep doling out the treats! Works like a charm.

Hi Joe!

Great pics! So is Tanner really a Santa's helper or does he just sniff & pee on Santa when he comes down the chimney?

Haha , I like your outtakes - if they were that good, then the real one must be great! Lol...
Anyhoo, looks like you had fun at Thanksgiving too, and the toys on that baby's seat DID look cool!
Love Clover xo
P.S. She is a very cute baby, too!

Hi Joe - I see that Tanner's "bib" says that he is Santa's Helper. Does he get to help Santa eat all those cookie and milk's? He looks like he as been eating some cookies already.

I'm telling ya.. We were (as mom says) PILLS last night. I thought it was funny, myself. Any other time, we would have loved to get our pictures taken, but she had all that stupid crap on us.

Oh well.... I think she photoshopped something and said all we were getting is coal for Christmas. We know that is not true. Grandma will get us something good!

I like the first 2 pics of you 2. Posing can be tiring on us doggies until our mommies are satisfied wif the results. Our mom is always trying to get the right pic of us 2together. We wuv her truly, but we love messing wif her when she pulls out the camera. Looks like from yur previous post that you had a great Thanksgiving.

Have a good night

Hee hee, your pics remind me of something a photography teacher said about puppies and ducks being the hardest things to photograph. I wonder why that is??

We're looking forward to seeing the results!
