Floofyhead Friday - Ray Old Shepherd Dog

Floofyhead Friday


Ray Old Shepherd Dog has lived here for about a year, and no one really likes him. That's because he's a camera hog. I mean really. He'll play dress up for days and hours and weeks on end, he never complains about it and he never asks for any treats. That makes him not a professional, since he doesn't get paid for his modeling jobs.

Happily, he took the Christmas season off, but he was a complete pain for Howl and Scream.


Here he is, pretending to be Captain Barbossa. I mean, look at all that loot! He like being Barbossa because the name have "Boss" in it and Ray Old Shepherd Dog is nothing but bossy!


Ray Old Shepherd Dog make his first photographic appearance last year for Eastern, where he posed as the Eastern Bunny. There was some discussion that the Eastern Bunny was afraid to come to my house, because I might eat him. So Ray Old Shepherd Dog deliver the toys and treats instead. I thought this kind of a rip off.

However, we have worked together many times since then and will probably work together many times again in the future. He is a good size to be in the pictures with me, as we are about the same, height wise. He is much fatter than I am though.

He does have eyes, but you can't see them because of all the fur!

Ray looks like he's enjoying his work. Maybe he does it just for the fun of it?

Parker said...

I think that Ray Old Shepherd Dog wants to be a spokesmodel for the different holidays. It is too bad that he does not want treats but maybe you can get them instead!

Ray Old Shepherd Dog has really turned on the green! Love his St. Patty's Day gig.

ray is very cute. but you are right he's a union buster if he works such long hours for free.

Daisy said...

You are right! Ray Old Shepherd Dog is a big old camera hog!

Cheysuli and gemini said...

I think Ray enjoys what he is doing!

Cecil the Cougar: said...

Ray Old Shepherd Dog is quite cute, and it is nice of you to share your camera time!

Kellie The Orange Cat said...

No one likes a camera hog! Have you tried attacking Ray Old Shepherd Dog? I think if you attack him you will find he is full of fluffy white stuff that you might be able to use in your next art project. Just a thought!

PB & J said...

Well ray may be a bit of a picture hog, but he is very festive!

P.S. We voted for you in the Spring contest, we just loved your song!!!

Monkee said...

We have a camera hog over here too but it's another kitty: Phoebe. Thankfully no woofies over here.

Sunny's Mommy said...

You are not fat, Diamond. However, I cannot understand how he can be fat when he doesn't get any treats. It's one of those things that make you go hmmmmmm.

Team Tabby said...

Make sure you get equal (or more) time in front of the camera than Ray.
Your blog reminded us that Spring is coming - and we must not forget to remind mom to put the clock forward one hour tomorrow.
