Light up your life...

Since I know that a lot of dogs and humans are sad about Freda I thought we'd share our Christmas Card photos that did not QUITE make the grade...

You guys will probably laugh, but Mom wasn't finding us to be very funny...

She said I could probably look a little bit HAPPY.

um, ya FAIL

Half of us were cooperating...

I do look pretty miserable, BECAUSE I WAS!! I love the card exchange SO MUCH but I hate the picture taking part.

You guys will be seeing the finished product in your mailboxes soon. We will post it on here also as Christmas gets closer.

Cheer Up guys. Freda would have wanted us to have 1,2 1,2 a million more laughs.

This is a great cheer-up post. And I think you guys look awesome in any photo. My ma ape needs to take pictures of us for our card but she says that if you think two dogs is bad--try THREE. She keeps using the phrase "herding cats" but I don't kknow what she's on about. We're not cats.

Joey & Tanner!

Hey, buds! I am catching up on your last 27341 posts... since my girl has been a lazy fart and hasn't been helping me keep up with my friends and their blogs!

You guys have been all over the place ~ delivering candy, making gran's & gramp's lives more meaningful, and bringing some good cheer to all of us who are mourning the loss of some good friends! Glad your parents made it back from Amsterdam in one piece! (I guess they're each in 1 piece so that makes 2 pieces... duh!)

Wally evidently did a fine job Sophie-sitting, and I'm sure she's FABULOUSLY happy to have you back.

I can't believe MARVIN IS BACK!!! I'm going over in a minute to check the dude out! We here in GooberStan have missed him something awful!

You guys be good to your mama and thanks for the Christmas photo outtakes! My girl loves the background!

Goober love & smooches,

Gee, maybe you made that face because the doofus was being, well, a doofus. Look at how he has blurry WHAAAAAATS UUUUUPPP face in the first shot.

Thank background made me a little dizzy.

Blogger Petra said...

I know...picture taking is the worst, especially when there are no treats as rewards for the photo-shoot.

Your background looks merry and bright!

Even though we don't like posing for Christmas pictures either, we LOVE irritating our girl by only one of us goofing up the picture. Looks like you two boys like to play that game too. We can't wait to see how your card turned out.
