Rory is out of hiding.

Howdy Everybuddy, we had fun reading all your guesses as to why Rory was acting like a great big sooky guts.  Well, a lot of you will now know why and sympathise with him.  

Yes, it's that time of year again.  The dreaded CHRISTMAS PHOTOS.  Last year we were only little pups and gave mum a heck of a time hehehe.  These were mum's pitiful attempts.  I had a ball trying to wriggle out of those antlers.


Mum never managed to get one of both of us, hehe, and had to join two photos together.  She said it just COULDN'T BE that hard to photograph two dogs together.  Couldn't it mum, couldn't it?

Anyhoo, she thought she would be organised this year and start early.  She enlisted our sissy Tess to help and these are the bloopers she managed to take. 


Tess, I think mum meant this one for Rory!

I look ridiculous don't I!

I'm not coming out, not even if you have treats!

Who would have thought mum could climb into our house
 and get my tie on?  I didn't know the old girl was that flexible hehehe.

 I might come out if I can have just one more treat.

 One more mum, then I promise I'll come out.

No really, I will come out.  Pleeeeease, just one more.

 I wanted to send my friends some Christmas slobber.

 87 treats later.

 Nearly the final photo.  Rory, open your eyes mate.

Tess, I think I'm going to do the heave ho!
Well after eating 87 treats, I would think you would
  you greedy little buggar.
Not greedy Stellie, just smart!
 Oh Rory, I've underestimated you.  You are a genius!

Hope your photo shoot get you lots of treats too mates.
We had heaps fun making mum crawl in the dog house, getting her and Tess to wave their hands in the air,  make silly sounds and generally act like idiots.  It was worth every minute.

We'll show you our finished photo closer to Christmas.  Mum says she's already looking forward to next year's photo session! hehehehehehehe.

Hope everybuddy is having a grreat weekend.
No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

  11. *BOL* you're a clever guy Rory! There is a rumour going around that mom bought us antlers and that our photo shoot will be taking place soon...I hope for mom's sake, it is just a rumour 'cos there is NO WAY she is putting anything on our heads!
    Wally & Sammy

  12. Uh-oh! I heard my peep saying something about ordering "funny hats" I hope she hasn't got something like that planned...

    Also, we hear there's fire down your way. Hope you guys are okay!!

  13. Wow! You are organized! Doing the Christmas shoot in early November! Mine will wait until Thanksgiving when we did out the decorations from the attic.

  14. Rory you are sooo clever...87 treats :-)
    Stella you are so patient waiting for him, hope you got lots of treats too. Really grrreat photos!

  15. Stellie....that tie might be a tad bit too big for you, hehe good job Rory got to wear it in end. Sorry about having to go through that ordeal....good job on milking the treats though.


  16. Hahaha, we love your bloopers! You two are not daft, are you? 87 treats - wow, that beats ALL our records, congrats!

  17. Oh goodness how we know the pain of the Christmas photos. It's always a pain in the neck for everyone. Mommy cheated with ours this year and just went with a fall theme.

    Hope the peeps got what they wanted.

    Lily Belle & Muffin

  18. Oh, that makes sense. And furthermore, we're with Rory!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  19. We need to follow your lead and do some holiday pictures now. Smart move and great pics!

    Katie and Coccolino the mini pig

  20. What a gorgeous header! Looks like a poster for a movie with a Tall, Dark & Handsome leading man and a cute blonde leading lady.

    We understand our mama used to be well organized like your mum, but fortunately for us, she outgrew or overgrew that by the time we came to live with her, thanks to her arthritis and just plain oldness. Can't wait to see your winning Christmas photo!

  21. your mom gets an A* for effort trying to get your christmas photos took. i cant wait to see the final shots. really looking forward to that :)

    i dont even bother trying to dress stormy up or he just puts his miserable face on and wont smile and who wants to see that eh :D

    lots of love

    Charlene and Stormy

  22. Hey Stella & Rory!
    Wow, I know it's a real pain in the butt, however, I gotta bark that you two look great! Perfect holiday outfits. I always insist on lots of treats if I have to face the flashy beast. Cheese works pretty well. Anyway, great pix!!
    Grr and Woof,
    Sarge, COP

  23. You has the right idea, Rory, make the peeps work fur those howliday pictures, BOL. Wot we do not has to do to humor them. Sigh.

  24. You had a WAY different photo shoot than we did on Sunday. Yours sounds like lots of laughs and treats and we love the holiday spirit of the shots.

  25. Hey guys - I hope you use a blooper one for the final shot...... He he he. Mum took my Xmas photo last year for this years cards..... We just had them delivered this week so we are good to go! Oh and we just saw that picture of Rory sitting on the chair under the carport....OMD - that was priceless!!!

  26. Ha!Ha! You guys did pretty good in the end. I cheated and used a pic from last year! LOL!

  27. Good grief - you sure gave your mom a hard time, didn't you? I don't think I'll try that with Blueberry! Good job though - you both look marvelous!

  28. It has to be said you are both scamps....but very clever ones! Deccy x

  29. Taking the pictures is what makes the memory fun, with all we go through to get the picture. We can't wait to see the finished photo, they are so cute.
