Mom took this pic while she was out for a walk with Hershey on a beautiful morning... She thought that it was quite 'artistic'. Initially she only wanted to take the shadows of Hershey and herself, but silly Hershey was too eager to proceed with the walk and kept pulling ahead.

They came across some pretty flowers and mom wanted Hershey to pose nicely next to the flowers. Unfortunately, the 'model' was not in a co-operative mood at all. ('Pssst Hershey, I think mom wants you to pose next to the flowers, not INSIDE the bushes!!') After like a dozen or so failed attempts and getting numerous pitying looks from some people who were out for their morning stroll, mom surrendered. All the pics were of a 'headless' Hershey with half her body inside the bushes...


We are here to shamelessly solicit for votes again. If you haven't already voted for October's Awesome Blog Award, you can vote for me (or the very handsome Max from South Africa) over at The Bone Zone.

The polls will end on this Saturday, 31 Oct (only 2 days left!!). Your vote will mean a lot to us, so please go over there now! **muacks**

Oh my,
We wonder why humans love to take our photos when we're not in the mood.
It's annoying, right???

Hi, Huskee!

Kisses and hugs

Dear Huskey and Hershey,
There are a few things we would like to say...
That is a really lovely photo! - the shadows tell it all and the bushes...well that's where a doggie likes to be!
We wish you all the best of good luck (truly) with the voting! From what we have seen, you are a worthy winner!!! You have been a true inspiration to many bloggers this year despite all the hardship you have been through. At the end of the day that's what blogging is about - inspiring others - and I hold you in awe.
Have a wonderful day and lots of love and licks to you all.
MAX & the whole clan in SA

Teddy said...

Hee hee, I guess Hershey is still a puppy, and puppies just don't like to pose. We like to play!! Maybe when she's older, you'll get more pics.

Kasha said...

BONKERS is the perfect description of my neighbor. Ha Ha! How are you doing these days? You are always in my thoughts. That is a wonderfully artistic picture! Love you guys!

JB's Big and Small Worlds said...

We think that first shot is really cool! Definitely artistic.
How is your mom doing?
Purrs and hugs,

Comet said...

We like the shadow picture. With Hershey in it, it looks like she is being walked by just a shadow.

We just voted for you (and tied the score).

Deefor said...

You do have an Awesome Blog! And that's a very awesome picture. We don't pose very well either. Usually my mom gets pictures of our rear ends.

Moco said...

We went to vote, but guess we were late. The crazy old bat is behind as usual. You are winners to us all the time.

i said...

Poor you Hershey. I know how that's like.

Good luck! We think both of you have awesome blogs no matter who the winner is!

Agatha and Archie said...
