In Which I Have A Mini Photoshoot, And The Hound Has Other Ideas

You may have noticed I have a fab new photo up on the blog (and Twitter!). It's all thanks to the uber-talented Stacey MacDonald, who blogs over at beautebelle.blogspot.co.uk. Last week we did a mini photoshoot in my back garden, and I'm really happy with the result.

However, someone *coughTheHoundcough* wasn't quite so pleased when he found out what was going on…

Well hey there, Hound fans. Aren't I gawjus?
Huh? What's going on over there?
WHAAAAAAT? You're having a photoshoot? WITHOUT ME??
'Scuse me.

Wait, did you take the lens cap off that thing? Excellent.
How about this? This is a good picture, right?
Actually, over there looks better. Can we go over there?
Now THIS is more like it.
Whaddya think? Is this my best side?
Uh-oh. Drool overload. There's only one thing I can do…
LICK!
 (You wanted your face washing, right?)
Aaah, yeah. Just a little more to the left…

    1. Thank you, Abi! Le H sends a big sloppy kiss right back to Miss M. He's missing her…

  2. LOL I have the same problem with Dylan the Dog. Whenever I'm photographing flowers or vegetables for my blog he HAS to push in and have his photo taken! Just to prove that not all dogs want to hog the camera - on holiday last year I saw a man trying to get a picture of his dog. The dog would sit and look at the guy but the minute the camera appeared turn his head away. Camera went away, dog faced his owner again, guy tries to sneakily take photo without lifting camera to his face, dog knows what's going on and turns away. I can understand people being camera shy - they don't like the results - but a DOG!!

    1. Ha ha! Actually, The Hound *can* be quite camera shy… if we'd tried to get him to pose deliberately in any of those shots, he'd've been outta there! Luckily, he's so nosey, he just HAD to get involved. :D

  10. Emma, I love the new photos! And I think it totally appropriate that the Hound be present. I don't blame him for being outraged at the thought of being left out! x
