Fur Baby Model Madness


Day 21 of AEDM and it is my 100th post anniversary... which is huge for me... not exactly known for my ability to stay on a single path, and this is two paths I am sticking with thanks to AEDM... so a doubly unlikely milestone... now I didn't actually realise I had actually achieved anything until this morning when the blogger round up informed me... but am feeling kind of proud of myself ... so I am going to do something I have never done before and do a bloggerversary give away...

Really wanted to have Phantom model the wares, but got the withering glare and I did detect a slight flaring of the nostril  and there was muttering about just got into school uniform... I am writing this before school drop off and posting later.... she didn't just get ready for school in the afternoon... so thought better of it and decided to not let sleeping dogs lie... so this is Mushu stepping in and showing us his best model poses... work it baby work it ...


He hung in there really well for the first one, though think he was still a little dazed as he had been tricked into sitting up with the lure of a walk... Can't believe how often this dog falls for that one!!!... and had no issue being cross dressed in the gerbera necklace and ring... he is secure like that... then managed to hold it through the cards and the notebook that isn't finished yet... it will be I promise, but hey I am working this out on the fly...



It finally twigged by the third pic that walkies promises were just a cruel ruse and that he had been duped again.. so he promptly lay down and I got this shot just before his head hit the couch and the eyes closed... he did well though and I am proud of him.... much more pliable model than Phantom and much better at taking direction.... 

So I need you to leave a comment, any comment and I will enter you into the draw and I will call my good friend Tracey Grigic Potter to find out how I do a random draw thingy, because if I have any question in the world Tracey is my go to and she is always right and good and puts me on the correct path, and then on Friday I will draw three names and you will get one of the pressies above... ring and necklace, cards and notebook , or an art print or two.... now they will be packaged nicely and all that but I have all week to get to that right, so you can just imagine how they will look...

Phantom has also asked me to mention that the model is not included in the prize pack... seriously she made me promise to write this... like I would give away the dog... what sort of person does she think I am... just because I regularly offer to give her away, doesn't mean I feel the same about the dog... he is a keeper!!!

Janet said...

Congrats on your 100th post! And love the puppy!

Jaz Higgins said...

Woo hoo! 100 posts. That's dedication! I'm pretty sure Mushu wouldn't appreciate going through Australia Post, so probably best just leave it to the jewellery and art prtints.

While he was acting like a bit of a 'diva' - I think he's got the modelling thing down pat! (pardon the pun).

Cynthia Schelzig said...

I am so glad you are so funny:) Yes, tell Phantom I WANT THE DOG!!! Doesn´t he look sooooo cute posing with the notecards...with a look like...oh holy cow, get these cards off me typelook. I cracked up when I saw the first foto of him modeling the chic pendant and ring. Thanks for giving me my laugh for the day...I feel better now. All I have to do now is win and my day will be perfect won´t it!!! This is one of those time you have to ask yourself...do I feel lucky?...Come on Tracey,,,make my day!!!

Paula said...

Congrats on your 100th post. Don't count me in as I could only use the cards. I never wear jewelry since being housebound and I have no room on my walls anymore.
Congrats, though!! Love your furbaby!! :)

Such a good boy that Mushu! Empty promises.... You are a woman after my own heart. :)

Congrats on all the milestones! Wooo hooo!
