My life as a MEG-A-STAR

Momma Testino *sighs*

August 27th, 2017 · 10 Comments · Uncategorized

So Mum read a book on photography and now she reckons she’s Mario Testino. Seriously. It’s embarrassing. Like suddenly she’s going on about apertures and f-stops and Elsie and I are like YAAAWWWWN.

I’m like why d’you need photographs anyway? If you want to remember something just roll in it. A lifetime of memories I got stored in my coat. Albeit I lost like 15 albums worth when Mum insisted on ‘trimming’ my bloomers. Less said about which the better.

What really does my nut is all the waiting around. Just hold it right there she says to me, like 50,000 times on every walk, so what I do, right, is I wait until she’s got it in focus, and then just as her finger touches the shutter, I move my head, or wag my tail, or jump up, or lie down or zip off after a hare. HAHAHAHAHA! It’s alright for Elsie, cause Else never moves much anyway. Not even her face. She’s got two expressions. Mildly disgruntled and hungry, or mildly disgruntled and HUNGRY. That’s it. That’s the Pie. And Mum’s got like five thousand photos of it. I’m telling you. Seriously.

So just about every photo Mum’s ever taken of me is blurred. And now she’s like. ‘Girls, I need a tripod.’ ‘You already got a tripod,’ I said. And she’s like, ‘No, I haven’t!’ And I just looked at her like waiting for the penny to drop. ‘Oh Meg!’ she says, after like half an hour. Seriously – that’s how long it took. ‘Oh Meg! Don’t be silly… Ooh,’ she says, ‘Meg. Can you just hold that look right there!’

    Hahahahaha! And for the record, I *love* the photos

    Beautiful photos! But then you have beautiful subjects. I must give you credit though because it does take skill and talent to take fabulous photos like these. By the way Meg, Mario’s models are paid big bucks to “hold that pose.” Just saying…

    I love these pictures. I really need to take a class I have a great DSLR that I don’t know really how to use. I use it in Automatic mode how much fun is that LOL.

    And Meg you probably say exactly what Snickers thinks when I take about 50,000 of her sleeping or doing something.

    Clare these are awesome pictures. πŸ™‚

    Clare, Meg & Pie,
    You three girls are a riot! “And now she’s like. β€˜Girls, I need a tripod.’ β€˜You already got a tripod,’ I said. ” – ha ha ha ha!! Too funny.
    Love the pictures of your lovely ladies, makes me love them all the more they are so stinking cute!
    You’re right I swear they know when the shutter is moving, it’s hard to capture but you’ve done a bang up job.

    Meg, darling, how can you be a supermodel without your minions taking pictures of you? You and sissy Pie are gorgeous, and the world needs to know it.

    Really Meg?!? You are clearly the Ava Gardner of your generation. Complaining is beneath you. To have your own Annie Lebowitz in house?!? Start the genuflecting. We should all be so GRACED by your…troubles. Ruby Roo insists that she is folled and obeyed at all opportunities. She is the Liz Taylor and you…Ava Gardner. Maybe Rita Heyworth. Act accordingly so that your mum, AKA Annie Lebowitz can share your glorious visage with the rest of us. Ruby Roo has an entire portfolio. Just sayin’…

    “IF YOU WANT TO REMEMBER SOMETHING, JUST ROLL IN IT!” πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ MEG, MEG, MEG!!!!! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ YOU ARE THE WITTIEST DOGGY EVVVVVER!! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ Not to be confused with being a wise-ass doggy! πŸ™‚

    Your Mom is pushe you and Elsie Pie to the edge!! She removes your bloomers and removes your albums at the same time……she “does your nut” (love that!)……and, the biggest insult of all…SHE WANTS A OTHER TRIPOD!!! πŸ™‚ You poor abused dog!! Just you, not Elsie Pie. It’s because, well, she’s just…hmmmm….lower than low maintenance. Okay, she’s just so unaware and has no desire to “engage” in anything unless, as you said, it’s about food!

    But you Meg, you have things to do, to see, to check out, to chaae, to climb over, to climb under, to climb on….and to roll in!!! To have to sit still so your Mum can do f-stops and sruff…craaaaazy!!!

    I do HAVE to say this though Meg! We….we being your Fan Club….so love seeing the pictures she takes of you and Elsie Pie!!! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ And to make matters worse….and I apologize for even saying this……we ENCOURAGE her to take lictures and videos!!! I know that “does your nut” to hear this…vut it’s true! And…..sometimes I’m lucky enough she even emails me some photos of you and Elsie Pie!!! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ You have nooooo idea how honored I am to get these special showings!!

    We are going to continue to beg for more!!! OOPS!!! That slipped out!!

    But these pictures are sooooop good…..soooooo good!!! Of course, with subjects like you and Elsie Pie, thst have to be EXCELLENT!! πŸ™‚

    These really are BEAUTIFUL and FUN photos!! The close ups and your mug and Elsie’s mug…sweetest things evvvvver!! You ARE posing in that one with the green leaf perfectly placed over the top of your head….ADORABLE!! πŸ™‚

    And the sequence of you digging in the sand with your ball….didn’t look like you had to be told to stay still!! Pretty darn active there missy! πŸ™‚ So your Mum does have quite a talent as an aspiring Mario Testino! πŸ™‚

    Of course, photos of Elsie Pie sleeping…not a posed picture at all! πŸ™‚ Elsie Pie moving? Very posed! πŸ™‚

    Meg, you are are furever smile maker…you znd Elsie Pie…..don’t ever stop!!:-) You (and your Mum of course), are truly the best thing that has ever happened to us!! πŸ™‚ TRULY!!!! πŸ™‚ You expand our ability to love and to laugh! You are magic! πŸ™‚

    Meg, Meg, Meg! I don’t know how I missed this post! I can only blame the evil overlords that are my bosses. So happy to see your beautiful face, it’s been too long! So sorry for your troubles with your mum. You and Roxy could commiserate over your mum problems. She just doesn’t understand why I undo the redecorating she does while I’m at work. Every day.
    Beautiful photos of you, of course. how could it be any other way? And the Pie, well to know her is to love her at least for the rest of us. I understand you might think differently.
    Consider all three of your smushed in a massive hug!
