Do supermodels have to be bribed with cheese?

Sometimes my dogs are uber photogenic and actually behave when I want to take their picture.

Then there is the other 99% of the time.

Typically Maddie is my go to dog for taking pictures with products, etc. Izzie doesn’t like having her picture taken. It’s quite possible she might be in the Schnoodle witness protection program, and I’m just not aware.

At any rate. Cheese. You know how photographers say “say cheese” to get people to smile in a photo? Well, with my girls, I just need to say CHEESE, and then back it up with, you know, actual cheese. I wonder if this is what they do with supermodels?

Below is a drawing I was given several years ago when both of my dogs attended a doggie Halloween party at their doggie daycare. For years, I’ve been meaning to take a picture to match the drawing. This week I finally did. Sort of.

As the small amount of cheese I had dwindled, they quickly grew tired of the whole thing, and/or me.

By the way, to follow up on my prior post regarding the EPIC Halloween costume I had planned for Izzie? Well, life happened. I got so busy this weekend with obligations that the materials never left the fabric store bag. I’m sure Izzie is relieved, although I still have the materials, and maybe next year I’ll start the whole thing with more than three days to finish it.

My Dog: The Paradox – now a book!

Fans of awesome writer/illustrator Matthew Inman, otherwise known as The Oatmeal, will be familiar with his love of dogs via his comics. Last year, his comic entitled My Dog: The Paradox was circulated so widely around the internet that it got re-drawn and turned into a gift book released this week!

My Dog The Paradox Oatmeal My Dog: The Paradox   now a book!

This book is a MUST for anyone who loves dogs and has a wicked good sense of humor. It’s a combination of laugh out loud funny, and bittersweet when you stop to think about the limited life span of man’s best friend.

The book can be read in a few minutes and it will be a memorable few minutes. Then the next day you will want to read it again, and you will, and you will laugh again. How many books can you say that about?

The book is not necessarily for children, due to language, unless they are used to hearing you swear up a storm in your own home (no judgement). My Dog: The Paradox would make a great gift for any dog lover in your life.
