No news is . . .No News!

Hi Evfurry Buddy!  Yesterday someone said they wanted a picture of me, I think Mrs. Happy Heeler Mom, and so here is the best we got.  My Mom says it takes about 32 tries with the camera to get one decent picture, but this one is blurry, and she says too bad.  She is too crabby today to spend too much time at it. AND THAT IS TRUE!

So here is one of Goody Four Feets getting the perfect face shot, Then my Mom goes on for an extended time about What a Good Kitty she is and How she Doesn't MOVE when she is trying to get her picture. and how Angelic she looks. ach!  That is just unnecessary, I think, she really doesn't need to say that stuff to Ali Z. at all.

Then she went and looked at the Army of Four getting their pictures with cute patchwork Teddies.  All non-moving, perfect pictures.  My Mom has a Teddy she just loves so she tried to get me to pose with it.  It just happened that I moved a couple of times at the wrong time and so she didn't get any shot of me and a Teddy.  The reason she loves this Teddy is that it has something a little wrong with its nose and mouth, so it looks real CRABBY, like you-know-who!

We got a cute note from a new to us guy, Sparky!  My Mom says she thinks he is just a perfect dog because he does what his Mom tells him to.  Tricks by the Galore!  If you don't know him, go for a visit to
http://sparkybarky.blogspot.com/ and I can promise you it will be fun!

So now we are getting some rains and I think the best thing to do is hit the new bed.  My Mom bought me a new Nylabone too, bacon flavored.  She said I am the first dog she has ever had that liked Nylabones and I already chewed one up she says is too small to keep.  So me and the new bone hit the feathers.

Have a good weekend, evfurry buddy and take care!


Stella, Ali Z and Mrs. Crabbyappleton

Hey there all of ya!
Oh dear..it seems that there are quite a few 'crabappletons' in bloggie land!...It must be the change of the seasons. Stella's coat is still so shiny and thanks for posting the pics. (It's lovely to see you two again!)
Ali-Z is gorgeous (even if I don't like cats...you are the exception of course!)
Take care and lot and lots of warm wishes to Jo.

Hi Stella
So boring when they keep trying to make you sit still! It's best just to pretend you don't know what they want, isn't it Stella? (Although I too would like to see some new non-blurry pictures of you, Stella, as you are so lovely).
Cheers! H.

Stella, just enjoy that bone and bed and ignore the puparazzi. That bear pic can come another day.

Woos, the OP Pack

Hi Stella, we liked your pic - these moms are never happy especially when it comes to us dogs posing!
We hope you enjoy your nylabone - we have never tried one.
We will put it on our list of things we need to try.

It's hard to sit still when you just want to have fun!

Enjoy your new bed and Nylabone, Stella, and have a great weekend!

I think that is a GRRRReat picture of ya, even if it's still a little blurry! My humans get crabby a lot too. Oh well, I guess we have to learn to live with it... I just can't resist cleaning the cat litter box, even if it makes the human crabby.

Oh, thank you so very much your words about me on your blog! That's very nice of you!

I hope you're having a grrrrEAT weekend, those bones sound very tasty, I think I'm gonna make my human go out and buy me one now before she gets crabby at me for drooling on the keyboard!

Ali Z, that is a lovely picture of you. Stella, my mum takes about 40 bad pictures for every good one of me so she knows how your mum feels.

hey Stella - sorry about all the crabbiness going on there and then rain on top of that? Poor doggy. Well, at least you've got a new bone.

Samantha said...

Believe me, it's NO FUN sitting still furever! Mom keeps making me do it for obedience, but doesn't mean I like it and sometimes I even get up. Trouble. Enjoy your new bed with the nylabone. That bacon-flavor sounds totally nummy!

I have about 97 nylabones I can send to you. I think they are boring (unless they are in Pee-Wee's mouth).

I think your mom's hands are shaking from being crabby. Sure you pose most well, right?

Chuckling - if you asked us to do tricks like Sparky, we would have destuffed the dolls the A04 were sitting with.

Life With Dogs said...

Try getting these three in one pic - not a chance. Hey Stella, sometimes no news is good news - don't look that gift horse in the mouth! :p

The Army of Four said...

You babes are both looking good!

Hi Stella, I hate taking pics, especially when they make you sit and sit and sit. Your pic came out great!!!

lotsa licks,

Cloud the Wonder Dog said...

Hi Stella, those are great pictures of you and Miss Ali. My mom likes to take LOTS of pictures too, because she says the same thing about how many photos it takes to get a good one.

And why do moms say such nice things about cats? I don't get it at all. Every single day, mom tells Boomer how beautiful she is. But she says it like this, "The MOST BOO-tiful Boom..." EVERY SINGLE DAY!!! Maybe it's so she doesn't kill us in our sleep or something?

It's okay, Stella. I'm not a good picture taker either. Steve likes to ham it up for the camera, but not me.
