Deck the December

. . . with a woofy Santa dog . . .
Time is Golden.
And my furs are golden.
So without further a-woof
my golden furs are all ready
for my photo challenges:

This is our old family portrait taken sometime in 2003 when I was a year old with my late Mumsy Pica on the right and my Popsy Sumo on the left with paws on Keeper's legs and me hugged by Keeper in the middle. Not much has changed.

And this is the complete shot with my late brother Bogart on the right who hates posing for photographs. This was a candid shot taken by our former housekeeper Myrna and is Keeper's favorite shot even if it is blurry.
It is good for both Portrait and Nostalgia.
And it talks about Time, and Motion and everything
that is Full of Life and now woofy gone . . .

But here's a good shot for
. . . with my late brother Bogart who loves to sing!

But that was then
and this is now . . .
There is only old me and my old father
watching and waiting and sleeping
as TIME slips by . . .

And talk of time
when I was always
Taken last December 2010.

And me in December 2011:
And Popsy this month:

And Keeper said I should not wear a beard
because I look like a comic on TV with my grumpy look:

And before I grumble further . . .
. . . Keeper gave me a massage!

But of course
I am

And I can make several MOTION
with my tongue, Ashley:
. . . woof the hounds with bowls of drooly . . .
lalalalala . . . la la la woof!

But Keeper said
the best portraits are those
when you are all smiles
and less grumpy . . .
. . . which is best done
by a perky 8 year Sandhya
who made my pawtrait:
I think I should start doing my adventures
on serial comic illustrations.
That way I will always look good
instead of sleepy and grumpy, Lisa!

. . . exactly like the card I made:
. . . purrfect for Lisa's

and before I woofy furgit
Happy Birthday
to Keeper's brother Joey!!!
