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.

Wordless Wednesday – we all get old

Turns out at Monday’s routine annual vet visit, the doctor informed me that Izzie, who turned seven years old in March, is now considered a SENIOR dog. Don’t know how that happened when I haven’t aged a day since she was a pup.

Wordless Wednesday – digging for treasure!

These pictures were taken of Izzie on one of her first trips to the beach as a puppy. She found a ball and decided if she started digging maybe there were other toys buried! As you can see from the last picture, she came up empty handed pawed.

Wordless Wednesday – Izzie gets a dog Birthday cake!

This version of Wordless Wednesday is not so wordless, so apologies in advance.

The following is a set of pictures I took of Izzie enjoying her first ever dog Birthday cake I made for her. She turns seven this week!

Come back tomorrow when I post the recipe for this grain free turkey “cake” — I even snuck veggies in the cake (don’t tell Izzie!), plus it had a surprise sweet potato center, and was “frosted” with potatoes, sweet potatoes, and turkey bacon decorations.

Enjoy!
