Photo Assistant

Hello, everyone.  It's me, Cammie.  When we go on long all-family walks, I'm usually the one who walks with Mom, so she can take her camera and not have to concentrate on "training".  With me as her Photo Assistant, we can stop and take pictures like this:

Western Meadowlark in a tree

Or this:

Western Meadowlark having brunch

That makes Mom really happy. Now, the problem with being the photo assistant is you also get this:

Dad and Mags - way out ahead!

"Are you two coming?!?!"

I put that in purple, Maggie's signature text color, but there's a good chance Dad was thinking the same thing.

"Let's catch up, Mom!"

Being Mom's Photo Assistant is tough work, but I'm up for the job.  Of course, sometimes she has treats in her pocket, so there are a few perks, too!



  1. those treats in the pocket are always a bonus and sometimes is nice to just stop a see the birdies :)

  2. Cammie.. We have Meadow Larks HERE on our hill,also. WE love to hear their pretty song. Do YOU?

  3. Mom forgot our treats last night when we were out walking and got caught in a thunderstorm...geeze mom! you weather looks lovely.

  8. Good thing you are there to help your mom and make sure she doesn't get left behind. The work of a pawtographer.

  10. It's worth it to lag behind if treats are involved, Cammie!

  12. Once upon a time, the Momster could walk three at a time and still manage a photo or two. Now we are lucky if she walks two at at time and no pics. And she always seems to forget those treats:(

  13. Oh yes...we know this scenario very well Cammie. Daddy and Arty try very hard to be patient....but Mama and I (and her camera) always seem to be lagging behind. Oh well, at least we get some quality Mama time out of it right???


  14. Dad needs his own text colour for the blog!

  15. It's impawtant to keep your momma safe while she's distracted taking pictures. You Sibes are always working!
