WANTED! A new modelling partner...

Where was Kate Moss when I needed her most?

So, there's me, a natural in front of the lens, if I might say so myself.  But when I asked Gail to pose with me, to show off her absolutely magnificent, beautifully designed and really very flattering new tee shirt*, well, this was the best she could do.

Tragic.  Hasn't she even heard of fake tan?

Better stick to being a scientist eh, Gail?

* Tee shirt available from Uncle Eric's Mum's website,


  1. Hi Bertie, we saw Nina with one of these Tee shirts - they are really cool!
    Thankfully Gail had you as her co-model so of course looked delightful.

  2. I love Gail's tee shirt, she looks very cute in it!


  3. Bertie - Is that you on the T-shirt or TinTins friend Snowy ? The resemblance is uncanny ! Modelled with aplomb.

  4. Heeheee! Bertie! Our likeness is showing up all over the world! Isn't it great! (Tell Gail the long-sleeved black one is VERY cool ... we're all fancy in silver on that one! If ya hunt, ya might see NinaGirlie wearing it on our blog!)

    (Gail looks soooooo much better than our Moma. But don't tell her we said so!)

  5. Bertie you crack me up!!!
    Madi and I think Gail did a very nice job of modeling!!

  6. We agree that Gail makes a first-rate model! You both look fantastic and the resemblance is uncanny. Mom just hopes that Eric's talented 2-legged Square Mom doesn't design Cairn terrier pants!

    Your pal,


  7. Bertie,

    Think of it this way - Gail's lack of tan just highlights your own wonderful natural colouring!

    You have trained Gail well to get her wear a t-shirt with a dog that looks just like you (and also like Tin Tin). I think you both did very well modelling as, even though I'm sure she knows the old saying "never work with children or animals", she managed to show you at your very best beside her new tshirt.


  8. Hey there BB
    Weeeeeee! That is a coooool Teeeeee! I want one like that! We'll start the BB fan club. Tell Gail that Maxmom says she is thrilled to see her photo on the blog...great stuff!
    Oh look cute too! You've really grown but I think I'm bigger than you. BOL!

  9. Great t-shirt but the real you is the best looking one ;) (oh no offence Gail I meant between the T-Shirt and Bertie!!)
    Water no, I know what it is, didn't even think about jumping in after them
    See Yea George xxx

  10. Bertie,

    Where is YOUR fake tan? Lashes? Eyeliner? You've set a very natural aesthetic in your photos. Gail would overshadow you if she got all hollywood on you.

    Love the tee!!


  11. With YOU, And you on the tee-shirt, who's going to notice Gail,or Kate anyway!

    XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & Bella

  19. We regret to disagree with you Bertie, but we think you and Gail make smashing models! Excellent views of both of you AND the tee shirt. And we agree with Asta entirely: unless you're a professional ballroom dancer and are actually performing, the spray on tan is truly tacky.

  20. We think Gail looks very cute in her t-shirt, especially with you in her arms. And just like our Mom - no spray tan!

  21. We love the tee! Bertie your model choice is just fine...she got treats for you!
