However, unlike most old models that get traded in, he got to stay.
As anyone who's been following this blog will know, 90% of all stories and pictures here are of me, me, ME! As it should be.
This morning, however, Mr Thumper scored himself a photo shoot. He got at least 15 minutes of camera time and that is u.n.p.r.e.c.e.d.e.n.t.e.d.
So here he is, practising his Blue Steel look.
Hey, what IS that? A camera? You're aiming the camera at ME?
Yes, I can do happy! Is this good?
How about this then?
Or I can do serious.
What do you mean I have a turkey neck?
You want to try a prop?
Yes, I thought that went pretty well too.
I have a suggestion.
I don't want to be difficult, but this prop is beginning to taste like...well...rubber. How about something different? A bone maybe?
Just an idea. You want some time to think about it?
