Talking it over

Over the weekend I decided it was finally time that Duke and I had a talk about his behavior in front of the camera.




I explained that if he wanted to be a part of this blog that he was going to have to be more cooperative about having his picture taken.


He argued that I post all kinds of pictures and very few of them are of me. I cleverly countered with the fact that I was the one operating the camera, therefor I couldn't be in front of it.


He had to think about that one for a minute.


In the end, he made the decision to be a good boy and sit nice for the camera. But...
 
He said he couldn't guarantee that I wouldn't still get an occasional blurry shot.

Well, like any "star" he doesn't like the paparazzi so you'll have to be a little more sneaky about getting shots of him :D

Donna said...

Sharkbytes (TM) said...

Hey- looks like he really listened, for at least a few minutes. He's such a cutie! Nice to see you too!

VanillaSeven said...

I love the way he tilt his head. So adorable :)

Sandee said...

Have a terrific day. :)

Nessa said...

awwww... Duke. He's such a good boy! Deserves a treat :)

BeadedTail said...

Cute, cute, cute! He's such a sweetie!

Lin said...

Tell him there is an awfully cute stripey kitty that poses nicely on another blog.....maybe that would help. Or they are gonna team up and we are gonna be screwed. ;)

earthtoholly said...

Great shots, Ann. Those first two are priceless! I can see the communication there. Very sweet.

SGR said...

Woof! Woof! Great JOB Duke. I know there's a blog competition for a Sit n Stay Command. You should participate on it. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

Kloggers/Polly said...

He's simply adorable .... and he looks so intelligent and well behaved. What a lucky Duchess you are to have such a wonderful Duke!!

WillOaks Studio said...

I want one just like him when I need a new dog..with looks like that, who can resist?! And now that you've convinced him to do better with photos, he'll represent his kind all the better!

Lenox Knits said...

You crack me up. He is a cutie, and I'm really not a dog person. That close up of him tilting his head is a keeper.

FishHawk said...

I just love the last one with his head cocked. Our puppies do that, but I know that they are just acting like they are listening attentively. Whereas, I want to believe that Duke really is. He's got me suckered--hasn't he?

allotments4you.com said...

the last shot is totally adorable!! :-)

Jen said...

Doesn't it make you feel good to win one occasionally? *Grin* You would think that someone with an Adorable Rating as high as Dukes would be more of a camera hound ;o)

Ratty said...

He did a good job this time. But I think sometimes it's his job to give you a few blurry pictures. It wouldn't be a challenge otherwise.

Angela said...

He is absolutely the cutest. I'm glad that he agreed to cooperate!

Sheri said...

Duke is so cute! He knows it too, he's just playing hard to get. How do you stand all his cuteness?

January said...

very attentive huh! adorable Duke!

Buggys said...

Very cooperative, that Duke, And he is guaranteed more print time!

Me-Me King said...

If you ever receive a ransom note for Duke's return, just ignore it. I promise I'll take great care of him.

Grace said...

He's such a cutie. That is the same breed my wife wants next. I will have to send her your link so she can read more about Duke. Hope your having a great day, Glenn

vickie said...

I think Duke has you wrapped around his little paw :p

but so sweetly!

Ann said...

ManOverBoard, Duke would be happy to be the Westie spokesdog

Vickie, I think you are probably right. He's so spoiled :)

Jude said...

I think Duke is very handsome, hopefully Obie will be handsome when he's older and his fur grows out and hopefully he will stop picking on his big sister soon. Bill says Obie is a Mama boy certainly looks like Duke is too.

junezach said...

Duke is such a cute little fella! ;D

fullet said...

He, he, Duke is so cute! I loved this photo-story, Ann, and you'll have to admit he really did a good job after listening to you. Good kid!

Roschelle said...

Duke is totally adorable! I can't imagine you ever being able to stay upset with him for anything he does...too too cute!

Daisy said...

Excellent posing, Duke! Explain to your mom that you will be more cooperative posing if you get treats. Lots and lots of treats.

Swapna said...

Superb commentary....those snaps are priceless :)

Anne said...

He did an excellent job. Sometimes a star doesn't feel like performing. He is one of my favorite cuties.

B Boys Mom said...

He should not be upset being in front of the camera he is sooooo cute.

Ann said...

Jude, Wade says the same thing about Duke

junezach, he sure is

Fullet, yes, I think the talk did some good

Roschelle, get mad, yes, stay mad no :)

Daisy, treats, need to stock up on treats...lol

Swapna, thanks

Anne yeah he does seem to get his diva moods going

BBoys Mom that's what I think, so what's his problem...lol
