Some pups suggested retail therapy to help with my bug phobia, and this is the closest my girl got. She ordered me a pair of Doggles to cut the glare on those sunny days when I seem to be most bug crazy.
Merv has been wanting to get more commercial photography work, so I agreed to be his Doggles model for his debut commercial shoot.
But first, Stella made Merv take some photos of her enjoying a sweet note and treat from her buddy, Petra.
She was totally engrossed in that note.
And of course, she LOVED the sweet tater suckers. (No sharing either.)
Petra, you are such a bud to my sissy, Stella! She LOVES YOU, girlie!
Now, back to our regularly scheduled photo shoot.
You all know I'm NOT a trained model, but Merv is a pro, and he pulled out some great shots I didn't even know I had in me.
With Pat Benatar blasting from the stereo, I completely lost myself in the photo shoot and here are some of Merv's faves.
(Notice the tiny paws sneaking into the photo in the bottom right corner?)
Merv said he liked the emotion Stella was bringing out in me. (It's called annoyance, Merv.)
These are my personal faves.
This last series of five photos Merv calls "Reluctant Celebrity". I really had to rely on some major acting ability to pull these shots off.
