Photo Shoot

Some friends have asked how our pawrents get us to pose so well for photos.  Mom says the secrets are to learn the SIT-STAY command and the DOWN-STAY command.  She says it also helps to know the LOOK AT ME command (but me and Stanley like to ignore that one).  We had this photoshoot when we found a treasure nearby.

And finally after several "bloopers" . . . 


And in case you were wondering:

The Neighbors - It appears that BOTH Mayas are now gone from the houses below.  The police have come to the home AGAIN and supposedly told them they HAD to help Blackie cross the bridge because it was animal cruelty to let him suffer.  They said they could NOT afford it and another neighbor said he would pay for it cuz he is tired of witnessing the suffering too.  Then today . . . the worst thing happened.  They have another new pup.  And Blackie is still there.  

The New Bandannas - Yes, mom did make a bunch of them.  For anyone who wants to make them they aren't difficult at all.  Here are the instructions:  Click Here!

Saturday's Date Day - I have a date with a beautiful mini goldendoodle girl.  So far Stanley does not have a date.  Dad says he is too young (he is the same age as me!).  So we are not sure if we will both have dates or not.  Since me and Stanley do everything together I hope he can find a mini doodle in time too!

Ah well, if you are looking for mini doodle girls, then I guess we're off the list of potential dates! ;-) We think you look quite stunning in your bandanas!

Doodles you look handsome in your bandannas. So sorry to hear about Blackie. Maybe the police need to stop by again. Awful situation. Have a terrific Tuesday.
Best wishes Molly

You two are model dogs!

We are so sad to hear about your neighbors. That's terrible and must be horrific to watch :-( You two are lucky to have such a loving family!

We hate those stooopid neighbors and can't believe they have a NEW puppy. Mom doesn't like us to feel hate in our hearts but we do.

We love your bandana's alot. Mom got your directions and read them like 121 times we will see just where this is going to lead....bahahahahhaha

We know there'll be a treat at the end of the photo session. Of course we have to go through the 87 bazillion photos though.

Good luck on your date Murphy!

STELLA and RORY from Down Under said...

Howdy Murphy and Stanley, your comments in the photos made us crack up. Thanks for the laughs mates. We're so sorry about your stoooopid neighbours! Poor, poor dogs. We hope somebuddy takes them away from them. Take care. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

Hi boys, Tell your mom she should call the police and report that Blackie is still there and about the new pup. People like that shouldn't have dogs! I love your bandanas; boys I think you should be on the cover of a magazine with how well you do for photos. We are now down to just Hunter and Lily and it is so quiet here. Cant wait to hear more about your date.

Those neighbours are bad people. We are sorry to say that, but they are. It is very sad for us to hear about it.

Wishing Stanley success finding a lady! Lee and Phod

Hi, Stanley! I have to tell you that my mom is the biggest doofus! She gets blog comments in her email and she "replied" to your blog comment on her email. I don't know what she would do if I wasn't here to keep track. Anyway, here is what my reply was:

Hi, Stanley! OMD! I am so excited! I didn't think I was gonna get any dates at all. Not only did Frankie mention me but so did Madi at http://downhomeinnc.blogspot.com/ Madi had the idea of a Date Card for her and I so I hope you would be willing to share with some other doggies and kitties who also were in need of a date. I can't wait to hang out with you, your bro, and his girl! I will have to find a photo of myself to send you. Let me know if you have any particular ideas of what kind of photo you would like.

Looking forward to Saturday!

And, I will also need a photo of you or I can swipe one off your bloggie, whichever you prefer!
