But it is not even Thanksgiving YET!!!

I was in the middle of my Saturday Squirrel Patrol when Mama called me inside....

A little busy here Mama!!

What Mama??? You want to take CHRISTMAS PICTURES??!! Mama it is not even
THANKSGIVING YET!! Mama says that we need to take pictures for Christmas
and Holiday cards so I agreed that maybe for "special treats" we could
have a SHORT photo shoot

Can I have the treat now??? I think I should probably have more than one for wearing this silly hat!!

I expect to be WELL REWARDED for this one!

I am soooo not standin next to her with that scary hat on!!!

Mama, I do not think you are paying Bilbo enough.

Tomorrow, Mama is going to try OUTSIDE...
Good Luck with that Mama!
TeeHeeHee.... bring lots and lots of treats


Khyra The Siberian Husky And Sometimes Her Mom said...

Oh well!

I think resistance is FURtile so might as well just let her do stuff!

Lookin' khute!


Stella said...

You guys are just tooo funny, do you know that?


Ashley (the mom), Dixie (the Catahoula) and sometimes Lola (the Pit Bull) said...

Lola and I speak from experience: She's going to do it either way. If you act good, you get extra treats!
Hugs and Tail Wags,
Dixie and Lola

Definetly the GREEN hat. Not the reindeer antlers, put those on Bilbo. By the way, that was some excellent squirrel watching. Did you see any of those turkeys up there?

Jazzi said...

Hi Dory,
I know those pictures are a pain and dont you hate the reindeer antlers?? me too!! but....as my mom says, Jazzi, we can do this the easy way or the hard way, the choice is mine!!!
I have found to just sit there, let her get her pics and it will all be overwith.
Mom was taking pics of me today, did you notice the pink shades on my blog??? Just go with it, thats my best advice and I got a few bits of pizza for my shades pic.

Have fun

Mack and Sally Ann said...

What cute pictures? I thought you were cute in the hat.

Hi Dory,

You are so cute with the antelope hat on... did you get your "well rewarded" treat after the shot?

Licks, hero

Teddy Bear said...

Very nice hats and scarves. Wow, you and Bilbo have your own Christmas tree? How pawesome!!!

Teddy Bear

Mango said...

Sigh. Good thing you started practicing early. Maybe you should put those antlers on Bilbo's hiney.


Mack said...

Mom said we are gonna do our Christmas pics this weekend - it probably won't work out as well as she had planned!

Mickie said...

ROFL!!!!!!!!!!! Not paying Bilbo enough :D That is precious :) I think you should do a whole collage of these pics for your Xmas cards :) They are wonderful!

Courtney said...

What is up with these mamas of ours? Mine was hanging garland and testing Christmas lights yesterday too, and it still feels like summer here. 'Tis NOT the Season YET! Oh well, guess we just grin and bear it!

Santa and Minnie said...

Dip-Dip and The Bridge said...

Deck the halls... falalalala...

Brownie said...

Dory, you look SOOO cute, but I still think you need to DEMAND a higher treat salary!

Benny and Lily said...

Darnalmost got squirrley. You are looking awfully cute in your Christmas Pictures
Happy Sunday
Benny & Lily

JackDaddy said...

I like the Bilbo butt picture! I hope the tree was only a prop!

Martha and Bailey said...

Hi Dory, Bilbo has the right idea! We certainly hope you did get treats!
We thought you looked pretty cool for xmas!!!

gyeong said...

The things that get in the way of squirrel patrol. Hmm. Maybe if mama used a squirrel treat :)

Paco,Milo, Maya and mommy Simona said...

What a cool Christmas pics sweet Dory!!!
We love the one with the green hat!!!!
You look soooooooooooooo cute!!!!
But we know posing for all those pics must be soooooooooooo bored...
Hope your mommy leave you free soon so you could go out to "play" ;-))))) with the squirrel again!!!
Good luck and hope your mommy gave you tons of treats for your kindness with her!!!!

Ginger Jasper said...

Oh my cat your card will be soo cute... HUgs GJ xx

Tank said...

I think Dennis must have been nipping at the eggnog already.

It is way too early if you ask me, but nobody ever asks me. My new motto is "whatever."

Abby Dabby Doo said...

Squirrel hunting is very important. It seems humans just don't get it! Sure hope you got lots of treats for getting all dressed up for the pictures, you deserve them!

Woof! Woof!

The OP Pack said...

Ha ha, you two are so funny, but we must say you look quite cute all decked out for the holidays.

woos, the OP Pack

The Army of Four said...

I hope you were VERY well-paid!!!
Tail wags,

BRUTUS said...

Already got the Christmas spirit there, huh Dory? Your mom better get busy making you some special christmas cookies if she is going to keep this up! I think she may have inspired my mom do the same, so please send any extras here, OK?

And congrats to you Longhorns on their win! Rootin' for your boy Colt to win the Heismann!!

Brutus the Frenchie


Hi Dory,

How adorable! Can't wait to see how your card turns out!

But we think your mommy is going to have to get a t-bone steak for Bilbo if she's gonna get his picture!

Hold out for bigger and more treats!

Riley and Star.

Sierra Rose said...

Dory! Is that a Christmas tree and some presents I see? Already? Or, just props? Our neighbors have a wreath up on their front door, and some fake little trees on the poarch.... Time is flyin'! Didn't we just have Halloween?
Ok...well...blessings to you all.

Hugs and snaggle-tooth kisses,
Sierra Rose

Audrey the Photographer Dog said...

So cute! I like the antlers!

Wild Dingo said...

Oh you know for modeling clothes or silly hats, payments MUST be HUGE! Pay scale, sadly depends on breed. My GSD gets paid lower than my Sibe. Notice here:

sigh. I don't know what your payscale would be, but I'm sure it would be equal!

ocmist said...

Cute pics, but continue to make her work for it! And insist on more treats, too... They really NEED these holiday pics, so they pay really well... DON'T Give in without the proper compensation! OC

Madi and Mom said...

Dory you are so very shiny and white!!! Did you just have a bath?
The red Christmas scarf is my favorite....but then Mom LIKES anything RED!!! Bilbo is just not into this picture thing is he? Tail shot is too funny!!!
Madi and Mom

Murphy Dogg said...

Ugh, the dreaded holiday photo shoot. I can totally sympathize with you Dory. Dog knows what kind of crazy sh*t Mama's gonna make me do this year ...
Murphy Dogg

Anna the GSD said...

Oh...no. Is this what mom meant when she said she wanted to try some "Christmas Piktures" for the holidays?!?!?!

But I do love the last photo. Bilbo's booty is awesome!

Anne-Kathrine said...

LOL that was too cute!

Honeygo Beasley said...

Wow, you ARE way ahead of us!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Elizabeth said...

you look so festive and merry
mum will take my Christmas pictures soon
I was born just before last Christmas
but I was only 4 days old so I do not remember it

love from Buster

chicamom85 said...

That was so fun and there is no way my Mommy is getting me to do that. What Mommy?? Oh no I am not putting that elf hat on again this year!!! Good luck my pals, run away if you can.

licks and sniffs, loveys and growls Sasha

p.s. That was so cute, when I saw Bilbo, I laughed so hard I made Sasha bark lol.

Brind'Amour said...

Personally, I like the antlers.


Life With Dogs said...

You are just precious at any angle!

Madi and Mom said...

Dory I believe you might be right about 'what Madi was thinking'. She does have a sly look in her eyes. HA!!!

Cheryl, Indiana, Shingo and Molly said...

Dory you sure do humor your Moms. Even though you didn't want to, those pictures are pawsome!!

Woofs and Kisses!
