Posing a problem?

Some of my friends will know that we have a very special visitor staying this weekend.

Gail and I took her to the seaside town of Stonehaven yesterday.

Gosh, when you have a distinguished photographer* like YAM-Aunty wielding the camera, but when it is Gail whose pocket contains the treats, it can be so hard to know who to pose for.

Life is full of these dilemmas...

*Among her many talents

    Crikey, Bertie lad, you're buttering me up for something, methinks; Gail knows how to get your best side and placement, and that counts for a lot!!! Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  2. Always pose for the one with treats! You can be adorable for Aunty Yam.

  3. Oh wow Bertie - lucky you having Yam-Aunty to stay with you.
    I've never had treats just for having my photo taken ! How do you manage that?

  4. I don't know, I always go for da treats.

  5. Teka is weighing in on the side of the treats, but says that Yam-Aunty has a lovely face and Teka would like to give Yam-Aunty lots of smooches.

    would give

  6. Maybe Yamini should hold the cookies next time!

  7. How exciting that you had a visit with Yam-Aunty! I think you had a visit with her last year as well.

    It's a toss up between treats and a visit with a dear friend. Gosh, I don't really know what to advise in this situation.

  8. I think this is a win-win situation, Bertie.

  9. Amen to *among her many talents!!! She has such a cre8tive eye. Oh Bertie would it be wrong for us to say we are so jealous of you, Gail and Aunty spending time together but on the other hand so very tickled too
    Hugs madi your bfff

  10. How nice to have a visitor and even better that it is Yam Aunty!!! lucky dog!

  11. That looks like a super lovely weekend, Sir Bertie.
    Wag on,

  12. OMD, what a special guest! Please give Yam Aunty a big kiss from me and Jessie!

  13. What's the problem Bertie you have no bad side for the camera! Why the way your tail is cocked I'm sure you have a most wonderful moon.
    Thanks for being a friend
    Sweet William The Scot

  14. MOL Bertie mom must confess to having taken off her coat hood for the photo. It it lined and nearly swallows her head. She told Dad to snap it quick
    Hugs Madi you friend who is happy to have 55 degrees for a high today

  15. How fun that you got to spend some time with YaYa! She gives really good belly rubs doesn't she??

    Keep Calm & Bark On!

    Murphy & Stanley

  16. Dear Bertie,

    Pick the treats over the big black eye, that's what I say!


  17. Firstly of all Bertie, Happy New Year. Lovely to see you hanging out with the southerners and hgy.
    That is quite the dilemma. Quite like when my two people go in opposite directions on walk. I find that quite stressful. Mum usually has treats but Dad shares his sandwiches more willingly.
    Thank you for stopping by after our long absence. We have been checking in on you now and then.bol
