Friday Flowers and Phantom Photoshoot

Hello readers, it's me, the Shy Guy. So many of you made such nice compliments about me from Wednesday's post that I decided JUST FOR TODAY to let Mom use the flashy beast on me - I really do NOT like that thing at all.

So here we go . . .

Here I am trying to see beyond the purple flowering liriope.
I think I might see a squirrel over there.

While I take a closer look, here is a glimpse of the knockout roses
and the dwarf crepe myrtle.

Here's TD wondering what I am looking at.

And a closer look at the pretty color of the crepe myrtle.

Thunder seems to really like the smell of the red roses.

Silly boy, those are just leaves.

Peek-a-boo, Mom.

He loves to look all cute and handsome for the flashy box.

So did you get enough yet?

OK, maybe a few more.

No, it is not possible to get us both to look the same way at the same time.

Nope, not here either.

As you can see, I am not letting that plucker Mom get to me, TD seems to like it.

More of the studmuffin.

Sure, the more photos there are of him, the less I have to endure.

As you can see, I hightailed it to the deck.

Mr. Big Tongue after our LONG walk.

OK, last one out here, then I really need a big slurpy drink.

Still not enough? Well, just a few from inside.

Hmmm, still looking for my puppy out the window.

Thinking about my sister, Princess D.

In deep thought. Do not disturb.

Time's up. That's all, folks.

Oh, wait, just one more to give you a smile for the weekend. Here's Baby Brady.

Hello Handsome
Those are our favourite things, dogs and flowers. When you put the two together you have a knockout post - just beautiful!
We think about the beautiful Dakota with every new pink bloom on our pink rose bush - that is now her rose.
Baby Brady is just the cutest - well for a biped of course!
Have a great weekend.

HI P and td
I must tell u Phantom you did a fabby job with modeling. I really like the pouty look up ears perked expressions. That is your winning ticket. As for your hambone parter TD, someone always wants the spotlight. We know who the star is.. right?

Tom, Tama-Chan and Sei-Chan said...

You are one handsome guy, Phantom!

The Thundering Herd said...

Excellent photo session Phantom (and TD). While the flashy beast is a pain, we love seeing pictures of you.

Alasandra said...

Phantom you are such a handsome boy we thinks you should let your Mom take more pictures of you. The knock out roses are pretty but you are the real knock out.

It was nice seeing you too Thunder.

Mango said...

Phantom. You look very nice. I don't think you should be shy of the camera. It appears you are a most accomplished gardener as well.

Reese =^..^= said...

When do you expect baby Brady to start getting his furs??

Scout 'n Freyja said...

Well, for being the quiet and reserved type you certainly did keep your fans happy today! We would like you to know that Freyja gets plucked, too! Momma gets this funny look on her face and her fingers get going and she can't stop!

BTW, the little face at the end was pretty cute, too, even if it wasn't a dog☺

Brian said...

Oh my, you shouldn't be afraid of that flashy thing because you are absolutely ought to be in pictures...every day!

Tracey and Huffle said...

Phantom, you are so very handsome that you should let your mum take more photos of you so that we can see them!

Oh, and mum says we have liriope in our new garden too.

Jan's Funny Farm said...

You really need to pose more often, you handsome dude you.

BeadedTail said...

Phantom, we enjoyed seeing all your pictures since you are just so handsome! It's too bad you don't like that flashie beast more but we can tell that Thunder loves it - a lot!

Honey the Great Dane said...

Oh, Phantom - we could NEVER get enough photos of you! And I'll tell you a secret about that flashie beastie: the more you get of it, the more you get used to it...until after a while, you hardly notice it's there! Trust me, I speak from experience - at least you don't have to live with MY human - seriously, she practically has a flashie beastie as an extra appendage! She is NEVER without it and takes a million photos of me doing boring things...really, I think she has a mental problem! :-) It is something to do with her breed of human, I think, you know like all scent hounds love to sniff scents well, all Asian humans seem to LOVE the flashie beastie!!

Martine said...

gaylen said...

You are very handsome indeed. What lovely dogs and a fabulous yard.

Wanted to stop by and thank you for your well wishes for me. I'm home and doing well. I'm sure it's a bit scary for all that Mom is now in charge of my care, but she loves me best and won't let anything bad happen to me ever again.

Sue said...

Why can't you dogs humor us once in a while and stand together and look in the same direction? People keep asking me for a picture of all ten of mine together and it's impossible.

The Army of Four said...

Wow!! What pretty flowers and handsome boys. I could almost forget I have Sammy to kiss on hug on this weekend. We're in the country with Dachsies Rule. Aunt Mary went with her Dad to the Texas A & M football game so Mommy is doggie sitting all 6 of us. It's gonna be a long night cause it's raining and we been barking our heads off cause we can't go outside.

Oh well, I guess Sammy and I well have to go find a quite corner to go snuggle in.

Mommy was hoping she would find some new pictures of you guys with flowers and look at all the flowers. So can we pick a couple to post?

Have a Nice Labor Day weekend.
