Almost 19 months ago, Mr Thumper got traded in for a new, younger and improved model.
That would be me.
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.
Serious and noble, perhaps?
What do you mean I have a turkey neck?
You want to try a prop?
Sounds good. So what would you like me to do with it?Just play around and have fun.
Yes, I thought that went pretty well too.
You want to do some black and white now? 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?
Okay then. Look, I'm a professional, I'll do whatever you want. Here goes. Z..Z...Zz..zzzzz...
And THAT, ladies and gentlemen, is what you get when you work with amateurs.I don't think I'm going to be losing my position as the supermodel in this family any time soon.
