A few days ago She Who Controls The Biscuits (I think I'll call her Biscuit Controller, or BC, for short as typing is hard when you're a dog) made me participate in something like a photo shoot (only a lot less professional and with far fewer biscuits) for a competition - something to do with Pets on Quilts. She kept muttering could I just please, pretty please ignore the lifelong rule of no
Anywho, BC finally persuaded me that I was going to be allowed on the quilts (albeit for a ridiculously short time) if I would consent to have my photo taken and entered into the competition. Now, BC doesn't usually ask my permission before getting the camera out so I know she must really want me to enter. Question is...what's in it for me? Maybe a nice treat like a jumbone or chew stick? (By the way, have you seen my doggy double on the Dentastix advert? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G9HEdK_LChc about ten seconds in, or so I'm told!) Or an extra biscuit a day for the next week? Yes, I think the latter will be perfectly acceptable - I'll let you tell her!
So, do you want to see the photos? The poses are all my own work (it's not as though BC knows what she's doing so someone's got to take control) I think you'll agree they're impressive. A masterpiece almost. And, unlike those rowers, mine has been twelve years in the making *wink*
Here you go then...
|And it's definitely OK to be on this quilt? You're sure?!|
|I'm sure there's a catch somewhere - I'm going to remain dignified in the face of any silliness|
|You're not cross because I rucked it up looking for |
|All this looking handsome is tiring you know...time for a wee rest.|
|I may as well make myself comfortable...still not convinced by the pink though.|
|I was hoping for handsome and dignified but I'll settle for cute.|
|Do you know, I think this may be my best side.|
|Now I look plain daft - I have no idea how I got myself in this position, time for evasive action.|
|Right, that's your lot...I'm having a nap!|
Right, it's time to go - BC needs reminding that it's almost time for my teatime walk and I don't care if it's tipping down, we're going O-U-T.
Edited to add: Team GB has just won a gold medal in the horse jumping over things event - I wonder if that means extra biscuits for all four-legged friends? I mean the people seem to be getting gold postboxes and special stamps, what do the horses (and their furry supporters) get?! Diddly squat, I'm guessing.* Maybe I could start a campaign - what do you think?! **
Oh, I nearly forgot! I'm going to get BC to reply to your comments - it's nice to keep her involved and give her something to do 'cos she sure as hell isn't sewing. It's been just over a fortnight now, I think she's forgotten how!
* The lovely Clare Balding has just said that the horses get to participate in the medal ceremony and get 'decorated' and written into the history books - is that as good as extra biscuits?
** As I typed that the power went off after a bit of lightning...seems like I've got one signature for my campaign *wink*
