A couple of weeks ago, I had fun at my sister’s expense when the October Photo Challenge theme was MAKEUP. Well today’s challenge is NO MAKEUP, so I give you my little sister, Tallulah Bee, in all of her natural glory. It’s hard for a big sister to say this, but I think Tallulah is a very pretty girl. She’s sweet, too. But so far I have the slight edge when it comes to obedience. 🙂
I cannot wait to show you my weather tomorrow. Autumn finally made an appearance in New Orleans!
This is the LOCK SCREEN on my human mommy/blogging assistant’s computer. Are you surprised that it’s a photo of me? 😉 Mommy took this picture last winter. We’d had a series of rainy, miserable days. And then the sun made a grand appearance, so naturally we headed outside to enjoy it. This photo breaks all the rules when it comes to lighting, but Mommy loves it . . . almost as much as she loves me.
We’ve almost made it through a Friday the 13th friends. Hope it’s been a lucky one for you, and hope you get to do something you love this weekend. Cheers!
A note from Harper Lee’s Mommy: On Day 11 of the October Photo Challenge, Miss Harper Lee is taking a little snooze to recharge her batteries. I love snapping photos of Miss Lee when she sleeps. She’s so peaceful and angelic, especially when she crosses her sweet paws. And I love seeing her in BLACK & WHITE. As beautiful as a Golden Retriever’s coat is in color photos, there’s something about the detail that emerges in black and white that I find irresistible . . . just like Harper Lee.
I’ll let Miss Lee sleep a little longer, and then we’re off to find some fun decorations to share with you tomorrow!
Final Update on the Pet Supermodel Contest
Notice that giant cat just over our shoulders? Well this photo seems appropriate for what I’m about to tell you. The results won’t be official until this Tuesday, but I fear that Tallulah and I failed to win, place, or show in the Impact Advisors 2017 Pet Supermodel Contest. On the last day, at the last minute, we lost third place to a cat–a cat!–that chased us from behind by more than 100 votes and snuck ahead of us as the contest ended.
Oh well, that silly cat may have third place, but Tallulah and I have the best friends ever. Thank you so very much for supporting us!
Tallulah and I want to be supermodels . . . and we want to help displaced animals from Hurricane Harvey. The Impact Advisors 2017 Pet Supermodel Contest is underway and we need your votes to be top dogs in our human daddy’s company competition. If we place in the top three, we’re donating our prize to Zeus’ Rescues, a New Orleans shelter that has taken in animals from the path of Hurricane Harvey . . . so your vote really makes a difference.
It’s pretty simple. Click here. Scroll through the pages until you find our picture. Click the VOTE box. You can vote once every 24 hours from multiple devices (once from your computer, once from your phone, once from your tablet, etc.). Feel free to share . . . and thank you, thank you, thank you!

Remember more than a week ago when I promised you a special Saturday edition of Sunday Sisters with our photo entry for the Impact Advisors 2017 Pet Supermodel Contest? Then along came a certain fella by the name of Harvey . . . as in Hurricane Harvey . . . and our attention was diverted to friends and family in the Houston area. We’re happy to report that everyone we know and love is in relatively good shape, but the story is far from the same for so many. The area still faces seemingly insurmountable challenges, and the recovery will be long and hard, so we ask that you keep the people (and animals) of Texas in your thoughts and prayers. Here in New Orleans, we started feeling the first of Harvey’s rain bands yesterday. Tallulah and I have plenty of food and our human mommy has an adequate supply of wine (as long as this thing isn’t too long or too bad 😉 ), so we should be ok. With all this Harvey stuff, we’re more than ready for a fun-filled diversion. Bring on the Pet Supermodel Contest . . . and get ready to vote!
I present to you our photo submission for the Impact Advisors 2017 Pet Supermodel Contest. The competition is tough and we’re getting a bit of a late start, so Tallulah and I could really use your votes. It’s pretty easy. Click this link to go to the contest website. There are several pages of pet photos, and the order changes every day, so you may have to scroll through a few pages to find our photo. Then you just click the VOTE box. You can vote once every 24 hours through Friday, September 8, at 5 p.m. eastern time. (That means that if you vote at 10 a.m. one day, you won’t be able to vote until just after 10 a.m. the next day.) And our humans have discovered that you can vote once from each device you have . . . one vote from your computer, one from your phone, one from your tablet, etc. We’re pretty sure that’s not cheating. Feel free to share this post with friends, because if Tallulah and I finish in the top three we’re donating our prize to Zeus’s Rescues at Zeus’ Place. They’re currently sheltering pets who were in the path of Hurricane Harvey, so they really could use the help.
Remember . . . vote early and often. In this case, it’s ok. 🙂 And Happy Tuesday!
You’ll have to forgive us today. Tallulah and I are slightly exhausted from preparing for the Pet Supermodel Contest that our human daddy’s company holds every year. Each Winner (that’s what they call the employees at Impact Advisors) is invited to submit a photo or photos of their pets. The voting is open for two weeks and anyone can vote once every 24 hours. The top three vote getters win $150 to $50 in pet supplies or services.
Last year, we submitted separate photos. We did well–finishing in fourth and sixth place, thanks to all of our wonderful friends who voted for us–but we suspect that the separate entries might have split our votes. So this year, the humans got wise and decided to enter one photo featuring both of us. (I mean, who can resist two Golden girls in one picture?) From literally thousands of photos, the humans narrowed it down to four and then picked the one that we will enter in the contest.
These three contenders were the runners-up to the photo that we’ll be entering. Voting begins this coming Saturday (August 26), so expect to see our Impact Advisors 2017 Pet Supermodel Contest photo in a special Saturday edition of Sunday Sisters. And then expect daily begging for votes. (Hey, we’re dogs, so we’re really good at begging.) You might get a little tired of the begging, but we want you to know that it’s for a good cause. If Tallulah and I finish in the top three, we’ll be donating our prize to Zeus’ Rescues at Zeus’ Place.
So Happy Sunday, and get ready to vote vote vote!
