I got a new phone!!!..Or, rather, my mom did!!!

I told mom it was my phone but she said forget it & that it was her phone!! Mom finally moved into 2014 – yes I know its 2015 but her phone was new in 2014 – its an iPhone 5. She thought about an iPhone 6 but she wasn’t going to pay the $200 for it! Anyway, the phone takes really great photos – that’s really why she wanted it! The bonus is all the cool stuff a smart phone has. Anyway, I don’t care about that stuff – I care about the ability to take great photos of ME!! Of course, the very first photo mom took was of my nemisis – Toby!! But at least I was the 2nd photo! Here are those photos: I hope you enjoy them! Barkingly Yours, LadyBird

I may have been 2nd in the picture taking but this is my blog so I am FIRST in the line-up!!

A bonus is that these photos are mom's wallpaper! In case you don't know, this is my nemisis - The Orange One - Toby!

I’m not always photogenic!

I know, it’s a surprise, right? I’m not always photogenic. Sometimes I just don’t want to pose for mom and her infernal camera. I’m afraid the flash will hurt my eyes. She’s started taking photos in natural light because I complained so much. So here are my outtakes from the Easter photo shoot. I didn’t want to include Toby but mom insisted! 

Barkingly yours,

I need to give my mom a lesson in photography!

This afternoon we were outside enjoying the nice weather and as usual mom had her camera with her. She took a great picture of Bella – but the ones of me and Toby? Well, see for yourself!  I need to show her how to center me in the lens everyone can gaze upon my beautiful face!

Very well composed and a nice photo of her face.

Where's my head???

Me, again, sans noggin.

At least I'm not the only one with no head! Toby only has 2 legs!

I am a natural, if reluctant, model

Tonight I thought I would share with you the out-takes of my St. Patty’s Day photo shoot.  If you don’t remember what it looked like, here it is: 

I look great, don’t I?  Well it wasn’t easy. No, I’m not talking about the work mom put into it greening it up. I’m talking about the work I put in to posing.

First mom had a friend hold me so I could pose.  I didn’t like that at all.

What am I, a doll?

You do realize I can stand on my own?

Then when I could finally stand on my own 4 feet, I wasn’t in the mood to pose. But finally I relented and held the pose you see on my St Pat’s greeting. I could take a beautiful photo anytime I want to; but I think it’s fun to make mom work for it!

If I have to pose with this crazy bow tie, I guess I can.
