Un Poseur? Moi?

I can't believe that Gail has just accused me of being "a bit of a poser these days". After all the time and energy she's devoted to cajoling me into standing or sitting still in front of the camera in suitably scenic spots.

There's just no pleasing some folk.

So, what do you think, based on these pictures mostly taken last weekend over at Loch Torridon?
Me, standing proud in front of Beinn Dearg
Me, the first Autumn crocus and Hamish's memorial stone
Me, besides the exuberant waters of Abhainn Coire Mhic NĂ²buil
Me, admiring the ever splendid view of Loch Torridon from the cottage garden
Me, lit by a shaft of sunlight, waiting to be taken outside to do more posing
Me, showing my appreciation of the Torridonian Sandstone
Me, in reflective mood in the cottage garden
Me, in guard dog pose (scared, aren't you, sheep?)
Me, the centrepiece of a stereotypical Scottish composition involving heather and mountains

Me, in the heather again (eat your heart out, Westies!)
You have to admit, I'm getting rather good at this posing lark, even though I say so myself.

Oh what's this? Gail is saying perhaps I might consider modelling some cute wee outfits then, like so many of my bloggie pals.


Quelle horreur.


  1. wow, what a beautiful place! and your so handsome too.

  2. Bertie, you're a wonderful model, but please, leave the clothing to the Heidi Klums of the world. You're perfect just as you are.

  3. Well, I would say you are a Top Modell, a professional one, a good one. So, what does Gail pay you for all this photoshootings? I think you need a Manager.

    Oh, and what was that about Westies....

    Mai the Westie

  4. Cute wee outfits ??? Next thing we know you'll be moving to Morningside and taking tea in Jenners.

  5. Aww....dont listen to her Bertie!! You look fantastic in your poses!! yah NO wee outfits fur you!! YOu just look natural in the furs!!


  6. Is it still OK to bounce back to you Bertie or do I need to contact your agent?
    I say "if you've got it, flaunt it"!

  7. We like you "au nautrel"!! You certainly have some beautiful scenery around you too.

  8. You really are a natural model Bertie, but doggy outfits- NO NO No-that is just WRONG!!!! LOL

  9. Hey Bertie!
    Wow, you are a pawesome pix hound! Love the sunlight one and the guard pose. I say draw the line at bandanas! That seems to satisfy my peeps and keep the dreaded outfits out of my life. BOL

  12. I do NOT agree with Gail at all. I think you are just being your NORMAL Handsome Self!!!

  14. Bertie you sure have got the hang of posing do you get paied for it?

  15. Dude, not the outfits! Luckily my dad person puts the kibosh on those around here.

    You sure do live in a stunning place.

    Nubbin wiggles,

  16. Ach! I've got it Bertie! Gail wants a large selection of pics so when you finally write that scientific treatsie you have been at and it gets published . . .why you will have a selection of photos to send in with it!

    Very smart, indeed!


  17. hey Bertie,

    You can't help being a poser, you are just so naturally beautiful and photogenic, why not flaunt if you've got it? :->

    All the photos are stunning! Both you and amazing Scottish scenery! You are a very lucky pup to live in such a grand area!

    I completely agree with Gail that you should partake in modeling, as you certainly seem to be a pro in posing for the camera (I tend to look away). Not sure on the outfits, but you may look smart in an argyle sweater!


  18. It's not your fault Bertie you are so handsome.

  19. You are a disciplined model, but certainly NOT a poseur! Stand your ground: no clothes, unless it's something that keeps you warm in winter or dry in rainstorms. In other words, for your personal comfort only. Your cottage and garden are so gorgeous!

  20. Excellent photos of you Bertie. You are of course doing as you told and sitting still.

    Good chap.
