DogsMom Exploring the Blogosphere

Who’s The Boss (of me)

Filed under: Animals — Laura R @ 3:26 PM

This post is being added to the Saturday Pet Blog Hop at Life with Dogs.
Please leave me a comment, then hop over for a SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT.  You can help shelter dogs from the comfort of your own home.

I have decided to replace the post I set up for Furry First Friday
My original post caused too much trouble.  The Newfs and Saints said I used pictures that made them look fat. The cats complained the camera flash made them cross-eyed. The old guys said I showed their bald spots.
As soon as the cats saw all those clean litterboxes they fought over who would be the first one to use them.

So in its place,  I have decided  to show a peaceful, awww shot.

 Often the cats feel that if they do not look directly at me I am not really there,

whereas when I try to take a picture of the dogs they get right up in the lens.

Barefoot and Ponytailed has a Furry Friends Friday hop.
Visit Sweet Shot Tuesday for more Awww shots.

How did I not know about Show and Tail before this?  Held on Tuesdays.

For more great photos, hop over to Say Cheese.

  14. My cat acts like your dog. Since I got my new camera I can’t take a good picture of him ! He won’t sit nicely like your cute cats.

  15. My cats refuse to keep their eyes open for photos. I guess they just hate the flash! Cute post =)

  17. I’m sorry I’ve screwed up my linky party. I’m trying to make it larger thumbnails. I tried to transfer yours, but can’t find your image. If you want to redo it you can. I apologize for the inconvenience. Great photo though. Thanks for stopping by.

    • I am sure it wasn’t you. My computer is old and dying and has its bad behavior days. I had the link problems on another page as well.
