Picture Day...

Hi everydog, sorry I haven't blogged for a few days. Life has been busy, and can you believe it, sunny. For the last few days the sun has decided to come out, and all the clouds are gone! Yes, that means no more snow, but it also mean no more rain! My toenail doesn't bother me anymore (though it still has a big crack in it, and we're not sure if it'll ever completely heal over) and it feels great to run outside again!

Today my human Lizzy decided to take me outside to get some pictures of me. It was such a beautiful day, I thought, "Why take photos of me when you can play with me instead?". So, of course, I didn't cooperate with Lizzy very much.

She said, "Sparky, smile!"

How about I stick out my tongue a little bit instead?

"Sparky, stop tilting your head! You're gonna drop the cookie!"

Exactly my plan, Lizzy. Drop the cookie, then pick it up and eat it.

"Sparky, pay attention!

Why can't we just have some fun and play ball?

"Sparky, hold still!

Yawn. Just put the camera away, Lizzy...

"Sparky, stop rolling your eyes at me! Look at the camera!"

Ugh... Would someone just please take that camera away from her....

"Sparky, I've had it with you! Stop goofing around! What I want it a nice, sweet smile! No rolling eyes and no tongues sticking out! Do a nice smile for me, Sparky. I deserve one. After all, it is my birthday!"

What?! Oh man, you're right! Sorry Lizzy, I forgot it was your special day. I'll cooperate with you just this once. But for the next 364 days, we'll do things my way again.

Here's a smile for you, Lizzy.

Happy Birthday to my human Lizzy, who now has 15 candles on her cake! (Er, I mean 15 candles on what was her cake. Burp!)

Hi Sparky
You're a super dog model. Nice smile. Glad you have some sun. Longer walkies.


Reba & Shadow @ Reba's Run said...

Hey, Sparks ole buddy!! Tell your Lizzy "Happy Birthday" from us, ok? Sorry we're a day late, but we both had to have naps, whoof/meow.

So anyway, this is the thing. We're tagging you for the Message in a Bottle Meme. It's kinda fun, and easy too. You can have White Cat help if you like. We've joined forces and do the blog together. Was too much work for one dog that wanted to play and nap... so the cat stepped in to do some of the work.


You sure have lots 'a critter friends here, so won't have a problem passing the meme on to others.


Reba & Shadow @ Reba's Run said...

We came back cuz when we were here earlier we go so excited 'bout Lizzie's birthday that we forgot to tell you how much we like your photographs. You looks real good in 'em.

parlance said...

Sparky, wish Lizzy a happy birthday from Penny and me. You look great in all the photos, not just the smiling one.

Happy Birthday Lizzie, and Sparky, I know how you feel about moms and those silly cameras! Why do they always want to take lots of pictures? Don't they know that we don't care and all we want to do is play, play, play!!! Silly humans!!

Mom read the blog post that you sent-Very interesting!
