Still Sizzling in September (and Voting Continues)


Audubon Park Willow Tree // September 25, 2016

Each month this year, Tallulah Bee and I have joined our humans for a photo session in New Orleans’ Audubon Park. We pose on about the same weekend each month (the third or fourth weekend), at about the same time of day (early morning), and at the same spot (in front of a little willow tree that stands next to a pond). When we finished our August photo shoot, we really thought we were saying goodbye to the miserable hot days of summer. Wrong. A few days ago, with tongues hanging out, Tallulah and I did our best to look cool for our sizzling September entry. The weather humans have confirmed that this summer has been unusually warm hotter than blazes: 43 nights during which the temperature did not drop below 80 degrees, shattering the previous record of 13 set in 2010. Enough, Mother Nature. We’re ready for a cool, crisp photo shoot in October.


And a little more about our monthly photo sessions in the park. Mommy never ever gets “the shot” on the first try. Tallulah is easily distracted, so it takes a little time and effort. Thank goodness for digital photography!


Just a quick reminder that voting in my human daddy’s company Pet Supermodel Contest continues. Thank you so very much for all your votes so far. As I dictate this blog post to my human mommy/blogging assistant/typist, I’m in fourth place (with 156 votes) and Tallulah is in fifth place (with 147 votes). Our chances of catching the leaders are pretty slim. (A couple of cats are hanging on to first place with 555 votes and two dogs are in second and third, one with 546 votes and the other with 241 votes.) I’d cry foul and ask for an inquiry into voter fraud, but they’re all pretty cute, so I’m sure the vote count is legit. Anyway, we have a couple of dogs in an inflatable boat who are gaining on us, so remember to vote early and often . . . totally legal in this case.

Remember: One vote per pet every 24 hours and voting closes at 5 p.m. central time Friday, September 30. Thank you!

  1. We got our vote in today. Your tongues say it all on the tree picture. *pant pant pant*

    Love and licks,

    • If you think our tongues were long, you should have seen our humans. 😉 My human mommy’s trying to think of some nice air conditioned place to do our 2017 monthly photos. Thanks for the vote, Cupcake. We really, really appreciate that!

    You girls are so fab! Amazing how your fur doesn’t get frizzy! (does your Mom use spray?) We voted for both of you again! Looks like it will be a landslide! MHL Rules! xo

    • No spray. Sometimes, when it’s super humid, our ears frizz. Humans have been known to pay a lot of money for that look! Thanks so much for your votes. We really appreciate your support. 🙂

  3. We voted! Thanks for reminding us. What do you think about Les Miles? : (

    • Thanks so much for your support. My humans were stunned and sad when they heard that Les was gone (they were in a restaurant and got a text from a friend). He is such a good man. Mommy always said that if she had a son she would be thrilled for him to play for Les Miles. It will be interesting to see who comes next. He might be a better coach, but I certainly doubt that he’ll be a better person.

    Voted! And will get a couple more in before deadline. 🙂

  5. Completely adorbs but I’m surprised you haven’t won this contest yet! 😉 We’ll do our part to correct this injustice.

    My mom always says if we still had film and developing, we would either be broke or have very little photography going on.

  7. Voted and shared. 🙂
