Picture Day!

Yesterday morning was a wholly unplanned "picture day" for the Doodle and me. While playing on Facebook last weekend, I commented on a Fido Friendly post and was subsequently asked for a photo to include with my post for publication. Granted, it's a tiny little comment, nothing nearly as awesome as the According to Gus spread, but it may very well be the only time Darby and I are ever in a magazine, so it's exciting enough for us.

The only hitch in this piece of fun was my utter lack of a decent photo of the two of us. I have hundreds of photos of Darby --- happy Darby, sleeping Darby, wet Darby, playing Darby, puppy Darby --- but nearly none of the two of us together. Ugh. I hate having photos taken of me, but if I want our little one inch by one inch piece of photographic immortality, looks like I'm going to have to suck it up and smile for the camera.

We got up yesterday morning and had my husband snap off a few pics of the two of us before I headed to work. I drove off with a bit of trepidation, since whatever was stored on the camera card was what I had to live with, having promised to send the photo directly.

Turns out my spouse grabbed what may be one of my very favorite "me and Doodle" shots. Darby is about as cute as I think I'll ever get on film and I managed to not look like a complete dork, which is harder than it sounds. See for yourself.

He looks so grown-up!

We're on the Hop again this weekend!

That's a great pic! You both look stunning!

Oh what a handsome doodle he is :) (We're partial to doodles in the Nugget house... well, Oscar and I are! Nugget might feel differently, HA!).

Hi Y'all!

Wonderful hard to get the Humans to include themselves with us.

Y'all come by now,

Congratulations on the recognition by Fido Friendly. And you both look adorable.

A couple of months ago, the Anipal Pet blog asked for pictures of "dog moms." Only a very small handful of people participated. Evidently everyone has pix of their dogs and none of themselves.

Pamela, I think it's because we're the ones usually holding the camera.

But I have to admit, for someone who will do almost anything to avoid a photo, I'm quite pleased with this one. Now I need not do it again for years :)

So cute! Definitely worthy of a magazine spread! ;)

By the way... We’re having a raffle right now to raise money for a doggie friend’s medical treatment. Raffle tickets are just $1.00! We’d love it if you’d stop by! (Prizes will be displayed from now until March 12, then on March 13-15 you can “spend” your raffle tickets!)

It's a fabulous photo of the two of you! I can't wait to see the two of you in an upcoming FIDO Friendly issue!!!

I had to chuckle because we had to quickly snap photos too. I'm always behind the camera!

The picture turned out great!
