The Exhausting Job Of Modeling

Hu-Dad asks that we post for his camera so he can share photographs with our readers, but we need to tell you about the exhausting job of modeling.

As a working breed, we are accustomed to a strenuous lifestyle. Hey, you, looking at your screen, stop snickering. We do work really hard at our jobs but make it look easy.

Looking pretty in front of the camera may sound like a simple thing to do, but Hu-Dad can take dozens and dozens of pictures until he gets 3 or 4 he can use in the blog. Like it’s our fault that he struggles to keep the camera focused or keep us in frame. We aren’t being uncooperative—we are being creative!

This grass may look comfortable, but this is work.

We just want you readers to understand how hard we work to bring our story to you. Let’s just look at Landon after a hard session of modeling.

    Oh Landon, the life of a top-level model is exhausting but you are so beautiful. We love that you put in so much creative effort to pose for Hu-Dad. You did a wonderful job and deserve your rest. I am sure that Hu-Dad appreciated your creativity. Keep up the good job of allowing Hu-Dad to get such gorgeous photos to share with us.

    Work it Boom! I know, being beautiful is a chore…you do it well! Glad to see Hu-dad got several good photos before you got too tired. My Huskies are worker too…they work begging for treats, surfing the counters, and filling the house with their floof. Guess you all really are a busy bunch! ????????

    POOR Landon-you REALLY work hard at modeling! But you have to know how much all of us enjoy your photos-both you and the rest of the herd! So keep up the great and VERY difficult work! Thanks Hu-Dad for the smiles your pictures start my day off with!
