Photo Shoot

Hi everyone! I am back. Yep I have been gone for a few days. We have been kind of busy. My kids tend to keep us very busy with school, festivals, blahball games, homework......oh that list goes on. So I asked mom.....when is it just going to be about ME!!!!
Well......on Sunday I had a photo shoot. This really cool lady who lives in Michigan named Teresa came to my house. She took a bajillion pictures of ME!!! (ok those kids snuck in a few of them too darn it....oh and lets not forget about Miz Pilar!!) I got to run and play and frolic and just about do whatever I wanted just so she could get the right picture!!! Do you see that picture above? That is one of them!!! My mommy loves black and whites so she did this one for my mommy. Teresa takes boootiful pictures of black doggies in black and whites (well in color too).
I got a little cranky and didn't want to mind.....so mommy made me take a time out. Can you believe it??? So during my time-out....a much needed one according to mommy, the hoomans talked!!!
Teresa shared with mommy that she works with a rescue group here in Michigan. This rescue group takes the doggies that nobody would rescue, yep that is right the ones headed for the bridge before their time!!!! Cool isn't it! These pups do get forever homes too!!!
Then mommy got to educate Teresa (my new pal with good treats) on the Airedale breed and all their colors. Not to mention when she came in the house I went right over and sat on her lap. I just thought she was there for me to use as a chair. Another hooman......another lap...chair...whatever!!!
So this is just one of the many pictures. We call it the teaser picture!!! teehee Miz Teresa is a very busy lady.....smart too. We should be able to see the pictures in a few weeks when the bajillion of them are done! We will also put something up on our sidebar so you can go to her bloggy and see me and all the other doggies!!! We have a feeling that once grandma sees a few of the pictures of me and my kids......well ya know....she will be buying a few!!!! It is just because we are all so darn cute!!!! (love ya g-ma)
Well this is Willow signing out for today from the Compound. Advising you all that if someone says......can I take your picture. You just might want to say yes. You will make a new friend and have fun......not to mention all the treats you will get!!!

Ooo, major handsome picture dude! We like the black and white photography - very art nouveau (whatever that is!) We like your photographer, too bad we live so far away. Maybe we will make Mum take some froo-froo pictures of us tonight.

Love, Dozer, Dottie and Cooper

Oh Willow. Not only are you beautiful in that pic(but that is redundant, bcause you are always beautiful) but it has a mystical, ethereal quality to it. wow,Sunny here.
Scooter here: i dunno whut she jus sed. she iz alwaz doin that. *shakes head* bootiful i got out of all those werds. an i grees!!! u r bootiful!!
Jamie's turn: well as usual, Sunny said it perfectly. It can be hard having a dog with an IQ that rivals your own. *sigh*
I will say I have become enamourd of the black dale. Maybe someday....
It is gorgous. Can't imagine the rest of them. And can't wait to se thm!
Hugs & Hi 5s

Moco said...

What a nice picture. We are looking forward to seeing the rest. What other purpose does a human have than to be a pillow or seat for us. Grammie says if people don't want to sit on dog hair or have dogs sit on them then don't come to our house.

Just guess a day between August 1 and October 31. There is a day in there that I was rescued by the girl called Shalon from the pound in Florida. It is my gotcha day. It may have already gone past.

Bolo said...

Willow dont you worry about bein busy my momma is so stinkin busy nowadays with college AND high school! But sorry to hear about your time out, I get those when LuLu and I play too ruff hehe!


Kirby said...


You are like a professional model now. Woooo hoooo! And how could your Mommy make you, who is so perfect, take a timeout? So wrong I tell you, so wrong.

Your pal,


Woof Willow

Holy Puppy Poop!!! We can't believe we forgot to pick you up for Gucci's pawty. We are so sorry. But when you make it to D.C. you just need to find the plane near Gucci's house. It should be easy because it's surrounded by the Feds.
Anyway, that photo is really terrific. You look good in Black and White.

See you in DC,
Desert Pups

Deefor said...

That is such an artsy picture of you. You look very serious and peaceful. Like you found a good smelly spot and you're trying to decide if you want to dig or roll in it.


The Girl said...

What a beeWROOtiful picture, Willow! Sorry you had a time out... usually The Girl just has to ask me if I need one, and I behave myself!

Can't wait to see the rest of the pictures!
