Outtakes from my Christmas 'Photoshoot'

Hi everyone!

I'm starting to (very) slowly catch up with your blogs, so please bear with me, my Mom and her laziness as we get ready for the long weekend and festivities! *grins*

This year, Mom has been super late in getting that perfect photo of me for the Christmas Card Exchange. Oh well, better late than never right? We know that we could never outdo other doggies and their families who built great looking sets that sets the tone for the holidays, so Mom made do with what we had...Photoshop. LOLLLL! Anyhoot, she managed to get some pretty funny outtakes from our little shooting, and here are some to share:

Me in a mini Santa hat! The hat was a bit too stiff..I guess probably from the material it was made out of. I looked like those olden days cartoons where they put the naughty children at the corner with a cone on their head..just needs the word 'Dunce' written on it, don't you think?

Then I wondered where did Mom get the idea of putting it on my NOSE??!! I put up with it at first, smiling for the camera...

...but after a few more takes it wasn't that funny anymore. I think I almost suffocated in the process..haha!

Being all washed out from the posing, I took a break.

And when Mom wasn't looking (or so I thought!), I executed a little revenge tactic on the Santa dunce-y hat...mwahahaha!

After effects of the hat...we never used it again. YAYY!

But then, Mom managed to find yet another embarrassing looking 'hat'! Complete with a Santa face and all...*sigh* Oh well, might as well give her a few nice shots, right?

*After take 19786345234623*

Even Kenji was not spared from the horror of the hat! Because it was too big to put on the head, Mom thought it funny to hang it on his back....oh dear!

Poor, poor Kenji...see how miserable he looked?

Mom never got that nice shot of Kenji with the hat...he was SOOO not in the mood (and rightly so!). So, rushed for time, Mom came up with this:

We hope we didn't miss out anyone for the Card Exchange...even if you did not participate in the Card Exchange, please do accept this little ecard from us all! Merry Christmas to all and cheers to a FANTASTIC New Year! *grins*

Christmas Gathering!

Hi everyone!

So sorry for the long silence...but Mom says her project thingy has finished (for now!) so she has a little more time to help me blog! I've LOADS to blog about, so hopefully I can get through all my little 'happenings' by blogging every day...*grins* First up for the day is a pre-Christmas gathering with some of my Schnauzer friends last Sunday! We had it at a pretty park called Desa Parkcity:

Me reaching our destination and taking a paws got wet from the rain (it was drizzling when we arrived, but then it stopped...YAYY!)

This is Toro...his owner Jason is the organizer for the gathering! *grins*

This is Max, a totally cute puppy! He so reminds me to Colin with his bursts of energy!

Another totally cute puppy called Mocha...LOVE the sweet smile!

Then more doggies came, and we said Hi many MANY times! LOL!

The park overlooked some nice lake...Mom didn't do this justice! It's so pretty!

Mom also made some treats to share with the other doggies...peanut butter cups! She made me balance mine first though. GRRR!!

It started to drizzle again after a while, so we all moved to some shade...there I met Kenji, the white Schnauzer!

Here's another cutie pie that just arrived!

Saying Hi to each other...*grins*

This is Bebe...Kenji's (the white Schnauzer, not our Kenji *wink*) big brother!

I also met a cute and friendly long-coated Chihuahua!

After that, it REALLY started to pour, so all of us (owners and doggies included) huddled into that little shade and waited for it to stop...Mom didn't manage to take any more photos after that because she was carrying me to prevent me from getting wet *grins* Me, I was enjoying every moment of it...hehe! We also exchanged gifts (there was a gift exchange session for us doggies) and I got some really cool treats! *licks lips*

Okies, that's about it for the gathering! I've received SOOO many Christmas cards for the exchange this year so I will post about that next...stay tuned! *wink*

Quickie Before The Biggie...

Haha, I know that sounds super weird! Anyways, just a little quick note to say that I will be AWOL (yet again!) for about 2 weeks or so...apparently, Mom was involved in a big project with a VERY tight deadline to meet at her workplace, so it means less blogging time for me. *sigh*

But not to fret, I will be back to post in time for Christmas (paws firmly crossed!) and I have received a SPECTACULAR award from Siku too! Mom will also be helping me to design a Christmas card for the Christmas Card Exchange! YAYY! We still have loads of cards from our printout at the last exchange, so we hope you won't mind us sending it again...waste not, right? *wink* I'll be sending the cards to those who I have not sent before by mail, and the new card will be an ecard...*grins*

Okay, that's about it for now...till then, I will miss you guys!
