10 Dogs in a Row!

We went for a picnic last Sunday, but I couldn't blog about it because something went wrong with my M's computer.

So here's the long awaited photos...

Helios was the star of the day as my M wanted to take lots of pictures as he is growing up. So she made him play fetch....

But he decided other dog's toys seem more interesting, although he couldn't quite keep up with them...

Helios: I'll get it when my legs get longer!

Joey: Your legs are longer than mine but you still can't get it... ngak ngak ngak

Lolo: Are you getting the ball?
Helios: What ball? Don't see anything.

Scuba was so happy that there's no need for him to swim that he jumped for joy.

Scuba: No swimming! Yippee!

As for me, I was teaching Helios the art of begging.

Just look hopeful

Even Huskee joined us and exercised a bit.

And he finally got to see the 'behind the scenes of group dog photos'. It took all of us at least 5 minutes to get the shot.

behind the scene: crew and models getting ready

Why did the group picture take that long? Because....

...Rafv kept wanting to run back to the shade

I need shade!

... Tommy kept wanting to go back to play
I need more play!

... Huskee kept wanting to run back to his humans
I want my Daddeeeee

While Helios, Lolo and Chewie kept fidgeting. What I'm trying to say is, I'm one of the best behaved dogs in the group.

So this is the final result.

L-R: Chewie, Scuba, Lolo, Tommy, Helios, Me, Joey, Jack (f), Rafv (b), Huskee

Actually, that's not really the final result. My M had to do some 'cheating' with photoshop. This should have been the final result... with such a huge gap in the middle that we could have squeezed an 11th dog, if we had one.

Rafv: My imaginary friend's next to me!

I was so good that I only ran off after the group photo's taken.

I'm a good boy!

I think the humans are planning a beach trip next. I wonder if they'll attempt a group photo in the water. That will be Scuba's biggest nightmare!

Helios is only a puppy. Give him time and I am sure he will be faster than Tommy and Joey (poor Joey).

I much prefer land than sea and (hang oooooon), did you say going to the beach!!!!! OH NO

Where can I go for a stayover?

Hi Herbie,
I think the 'Best Behaviour of the Day' award definitely went to you. I heard my mom telling my dad 'aiyoh, look at Herbie, he's so samrt.. he's been sitting there looking in the CORRECT direction for a long time'..
I love the group photo.. u notice that the 2 dogs at each end are looking in opp. directions?? Oh.. it's me.. oopps...
Tell your M thanks for taking such great pics!

Wowie! Looks like tons of fun...wish I could go too! Problem is, my Daddy's busy with exams around the corner so i gotta be a good boy and not ask for too much attention. Btw, I'm awful at photos...can't sit still unless i'm so tired...


Rafv said...

The big gap thingy, sorry about that! That space designed me to sit there, but since I was such a run away boy at that day,(hey, freaking hot, u know)Dad put me behind Jack, the rule maker:)
You think I dare to jump over him?
Nah, forget it, I scared Jack will be mad if I did.

Beach trip? You think no Tsunami this time?

Puppy Helios is cute!!!!!

I'm not a puppy kinda dog and i tend to shun them unless they're quiet puppies (wait, isn't that an oxymoron?)....

Love the pics....more please!

Duke said...

Amber-Mae said...

Love the art of begging photo.
Btw, just wondering what did you apply on Helios to prevent ticks/flea? Thanks.

Joe Stains said...

that group photo is funnnny!! I especially liked the commentary :)

Herbie said...

Scuba: No place you can go for stayover... coz we're ALL going to the beach!

Huskee: I lurveee your mom!

butchy & snickers: yup.. we have regular outings... good for socialization, for the humans I mean.

benny: You'll need to keep still if you want more nice photos!

Rafv: Ya.. NO ONE dares to cross Jack. I don't think there'll be any mini tsunami.

pacco: Scuba's a springy MBT!

fufu: I always try to be good *acts modest*

Chester: But I'm cuter! Aren't I? erm... I am, right?

Amber-mae: I don't have a lot of toys... because I don't like playing with them

anon: My M feeds us garlic, and adds the yucky smelling neem oil into our shampoo for tick prevention

joe: Thank you~~

I don't get how all of you actually sat still for the photos, that's just AMAZING and it looks great even with the gap!

Handsome group of dogs I must say.

Love nibbles,
