Dog Day: Fame Has Gone to Their Heads

February 25, 2008

It’s so great to hear from people who enjoy seeing (and hearing!) The Girls in the blog.  But I have to tell you, folks, what with all this attention, and then with the Oscar buzz happening yesterday (yay Daniel Day-Lewis!), they suddenly think they’re celebrities or something.  They’ve even begun to re-enact famous movies. 

For instance, here’s Chaser doing her own rendition of Queen Elizabeth (and believe me, she rules around here, too):


Here she is again, this time as Lucy in Dracula(the Gary Oldman-Wynona Rider version, not the Bela Lugosi version):


Not to be outdone, Elsie went ahead and rehearsed for Bull Durham (though I think she’d make a better catcher than a batter):


And my favorite, their collaboration on Ingmar Bergman’s Cries and Whispers:


I’m really not sure how to handle them with all this puffed-up ego in the air. . . for now, I’ll just humor them and hope it goes away soon.

(“Mum, truly, this is has to be the worst embarrassment ever. . . but, while we’re here anyway, perhaps one of these nice people would like our autograph?”)

    I’m still saving for that camcorder, but when I’ve got it. . . (watch out, Lassie!) 😉

    As soon as I teach them to use the inkpad, it’s yours!

    Astra Libris,
    Thanks so much. As much as I tend to agree with you, I think I’d better wait a while on your request, or it will REALLY be unbearable around here!

    Aww, shucks. Me, too. 🙂

    Thanks. Well, they are certainly the best in this house, too!

    Grumpy Chair,
    Don’t tell them you think so, or I’ll never hear the end of it. But I’ll see if I can get that pawgraph for you!


    Thanks so much. I do get many hours of amusement out of them!!

    Whoops… sent that last comment prematurely.

    Anyway, I was trying to say: Ha! I love those photos. Your dogs are absolutely adorable. 🙂

  13. Ricki Says:

    Thanks so much. Of course I always think so, but it’s so great to hear that others do, too!
