Puppy Portrait Session

Do I really need to explain myself? LOL.

Okay, okay...

I've been wanting some portraits of the dog, I needed some photography practice, and I *really* need to play with my background stand and seamless papers. SO - since my dog is 11, and as you know, that is getting into the senior citizen years in a dog's life, I thought I'd better get moving! All things considered, this went pretty well - I had the treat jar ready, and basically, just kept clicking and handing out the treats, lol. It ain't rocket science!

These were a few of my favorites!

HAD TO get one in the teacup!

Is she sticking her tongue out at me??? This one is my fave - I love the feathers!

Is it just me, or does she look really annoyed here? lol...

Have a FAB Sunday, people!

Happy Birthday Schmoopie Sue!

Yep. We are *those people*.

You know the ones...they dress up their dog in little outfits, talk to her like she's a person, and then once a year, have a little birthday party and spread peanut butter on a biscuit and sing Happy Birthday.


Our baby turned ELEVEN on December 5. I can't believe she is 11 already! It really doesn't seem that long ago that we got her - she's really part of the family (as you can see, haha!)

Being a toy poodle, she was shaking like a leaf with all the "goings on" - and she was positively QUIVERING about a dog buscuit that was slathered in peanut butter.

We made her wait until we were all done singing Happy Birthday!

And finally - here is the whole family.

I think she snapped up this buscuit in one bite!

I can't wait to scrap these pictures, and of course I have to add this in to my December Daily album! I am working on my photos today, and will be sharing my first weeks pages soon!

Thanks for stopping by - have a FAB Saturday!!!

P.S. YES we know this is a strange name for a dog. The Schmoopie part is actually an obscure Seinfeld reference (it's from the Soup Nazi episode, in case you are also a fan) and the Sue part is after my mom, lol. Don't ask...

OH MY GOODNESS - It's DECEMBER! Are you (like me) wondering WHERE the YEAR has disappeared to??? Aaaack! I don't even want to THINK about how fast Christmas will get here - I am NOT READY! EEEKS! We've done a lot of shopping for the kids, but NADA for the extended family yet.

It's the first, so you know that means it's time for a new desktop! Here is my December desktop - courtesy of Dianne Rigdon. I just love that it's Christmassy, but yet it still has PINK in it!

I hope you had a fabulous weekend - it is back to the "rat race" for us this week! After a long weekend, it's going to be a busy work-week, so I better get crackin'! Thanks for stopping by, and have a FAB MONDAY!
