Yorkies are Tea Partiers too.

This is a real dog, not a stuffed one, despite appearances:

And here I am, down on the ground with a professional photographer, trying to grab the dog shot:

But who's taking a picture of me? Oh, it's you!

Stalked by my own husband, who took many pictures of me before I noticed he'd found me in the crowd.

Yorkie: *swoon.*

Shout out to edutcher.

Woof!

I kind of hope that's not a real dog. It looks like it has an antenna extending from it's rear end.

Joan said...

Adorable, all of you.

Very excited to go with my family to the Phoenix Tea Party this evening!

Titus said...

love your dress, fab.

Deana said...

So gorgeous!!

And really, who WOULD want to tread on something so precious?

policraticus said...

To my cat that dog looked... delicious.

You mean Meade? (As in "Don't Tread on Meade.")

Kirstin said...

I want that dog! But what do you say about the decision in the National Day of Prayer case?

yo pete said...

As a photographer might say, and maybe some other folk may, Meade's got a great eye.

MadisonMan said...

Is the pro taking the picture the one who took your engagement picture for the New York Times? I can't tell from the angle of the picture.

PatCA said...

No, I want that dog! He is too adorable.

Great pics. I couldn't go to our tea party--too much work/traffic, too little time. So thanks to all who made the trek.

Lawgiver said...

Woof, woof.

vw: culte

James said...

Is he really a "professional photographer" or just a guy in a photo vest with a DSLR?

I don't know too many pros who would put a Stofen Omni-bounce on a flash outdoors since there are no nearby surfaces from which to bounce the flash.

Ann, that picture just got The Blonde's unconditional and unwavering approval of you. Looks for all the world like Mrs. Hudson.

PS Woof right back, Irene

"Looks for all the world like Mrs. Hudson."

What? Sherlock Holme's housekeeper?How is that cool.

Trooper York said...

Plus Meade was only interested in photographing men in shorts!

Just sayn'

Freddy Hill said...

And to think that some claim that the tea parties lack diversity!

OT to anyone but Irene,

We submitted an application to adopt a Labradoodle who is being fostered by a Labrador rescue in Cincinnati. Please ask your poodle to cross her paws for us. We are really ready to have a dog again. And we have had bad luck so far: every dog we have been interested in at a pound or rescue has already been spoken for. So we need all the help we can get.

Moose said...

Well, except that professional photographers don't wear drapery...

Irene said...

@knox: A good thread always can wander into pup talk.

All paws crossed here for, human and canine.

Labradoodles are wonderful; there are several in our neighborhood. Their smarts and loyalty are exquisite. I often see a twelve-week old pup walking late in the afternoon. The way he connects with is owner is remarkable.

BTW, speaking from experience, one dog is plenty. Until recently, we had three. There is a wise old saying: "If you have one dog, you have a dog. If you have two dogs, you have half a dog. If you have three dogs, you don't have a dog."

Good advice for polygamists, too.

Please excuse the typos. I got excited by doggie talk. Pant, pant.

Landlady, please. Her father is Sherlock.

You and The Blonde both.

Calypso Facto said...

Does that make the Yorkie a "doggie bag"? ;)

Hazy Dave said...

The Milwaukee paper got a picture of him, too. His name, evidently, is Fido.

Irene said...

@Hazy Dave: "Fido," or "Fidelius" also was the name of Abraham Lincoln's dog.
