Lights! Camera! Freaked out puppies!

Twas a few weeks before Christmas/ and all through the land/the dogs were like, “What the f*ck, dude? /What’re you doin’ to me man?”

Haha!!  Easy’s first experience in front of the studio lights, with wearable accessories.  I think I blew his tiny little mind!

But, while he may have been slightly startled by this turn of events, he was a lot more professional than SOME dogs I could mention.

After 13 years, you’d think she’d be a little more pro about the whole thing.  I’m not totally sure, but I think that was DSL (Doggie Sign Language) for “Go pork yourself, Box Face.”

Fae always goes to her happiest place / makes her sad clown look when I’m in the mood for Holiday Torture of Dogs.

But nothing was as bad for poor little Faedles as when I made her wear a reindeer outfit and sit on the lap of a half naked man during our “Sexy Santa” photoshoot fundraiser.  She’ll be in therapy for the rest of her life.

Notice Addy is all “Yep, this is the life I deserve.”  Self confident little booger.

“Aye aye, Cap’n.  You know it.”

You know a woman has confidence when she thinks the world owes her a hot dude even though she’s going bald.  That’s right, I said BALD.  Addy is balding!  She is losing all the hair on the top of her head (and on her tail).  Apparently she has hereditary adult-onset follicular dysplasia colour dilution alopecia.  Also known around these parts as Captain Picard Disease.  It’s because she is a blue Italian Greyhound, so the blue hair is falling out and probably won’t grow back.  Even worse, the white hairs are unaffected so she has a sprinkling of wispy white hairs across her bald head.  It’s why she is wearing a hat in these photos.

I recently got a wireless trigger system for the lighting, which is why we were playing with them today.  I was having a lot more fun than the WooTWoo were.

But, as in all things in life, Dexter enjoyed himself immensely.  He even modestly covered his wiener with his tail (unlike TWooie, who covered his with fat and Wootie who, if you look closely, didn’t cover his at all!)

I even got Gemma to play.  She is totally deaf and almost completely blind now, so really had no idea what was going on.  It’s almost her two year anniversary of coming to The Food Lady’s house for “palliative” care.  Longest hospice stay in history!

If you want Christmas photos, come join us again this year at Triple Tree Nurseries in Maple Ridge for pictures with Santa or Bumble!  Check out our facebook page for all the info you need, and please remember to tell your friends!

  1. Loved this! I was totally Laughing Out Loud at the comments about Dexter and TWooie and Wootie. LOL. And yay Gemma. Sorry that Addie is going bald. Love your dogs and your blog!

  2. You always make me laugh

    Okay I had no idea how tiny Fae and Addy were until they were in Hot Guy’s lap! I think you should always provide a Hot Guy for scale when adding photos of new dogs to your website. For informational purposes only of course.

    <3 your woofs and your blog as always!

  4. Laughed at Fae’s sad clown face: check.

    Drooled at Hot Guy: check.

    Fae is ungrateful. Can I sit in his lap instead?

  5. What Zee Lady Bug said! I ❤️ Dexter….and so wished my crew and I lived closer.

  6. Bwahahaha! These photos put a big smile on my face. So many tortured souls… *giggles*

  7. So wish they hadn’t put that entire continent between us! Would love to have you photograph my boy, you do beautiful work!

  8. Ahh, sweet Piper – telling it like it is! And the Woo-Two, I love those boys!

  9. Fae is adorable and the Sexy Santa isn’t bad either. Actually they are all pretty damn

  10. OMG Gemma is still alive! I sort of assumed that she’d, you know, gone on to her reward (as we all expected her to do TWO YEARS AGO) when she hadn’t been on the blog in a while. All your dogs (and all your posts!) are wonderful, but boy do I love me some snarky-bitey-tiny-still-kickin’ Gemma Bean.

  11. Piper is saying she has done this too many damn times and she is tired of it. I don’t think I even want to know why you had a half naked Santa but he sure is a hunk. Great pictures as always and kudos to the dogs for putting up with it and being so adorable.

  12. Maria Shanley says:

    Thank you so much! I needed to laugh. We lost our 11 year old Aussie Rose to leukemia the day after Thanksgiving.

  13. LOL I just want to know how much to sit in Hot Santa’s lap?????

  14. Seriously, is Fae even a real dog? Merry Christmas to you all!

    See, Dexter has grown up…I remember a time when every picture of him sitting seemed to be an immodest proposition!

    These dogs are so cute! I love how they are all decked out for Christmas! They are really feeling the holiday spirit.
