Many of you know that my dog, Miles, is a good sport. This past weekend I signed him up for a photo shoot. He wasn’t willing to sit still when we were outside since we usually play outside. Miles loves to play. Once we moved the shoot inside, he was a pretty good boy and smiled for the camera. Here are some of the shots plus a couple of photos I snapped the other night while walking by St. Paul’s Cathedral.
This is my last post for 2013. Happy holidays and I’ll see you in the New Year!

Beautiful pictures, TBM! Love Miles in Santa’s costume 🙂 Happy holidays to you, TBH, Miles and Att! Hope all of you have a wonderful time! Merry Christmas!
Thank you Vishy. Happy holidays to you and your loved ones. See you in the New Year.
Thank you, TBM 🙂
OMG, Miles actually smiles for the camera!! That is hilarious :). He looks very dapper in his Christmas attire, and after all that work modelling, I sure hope you took him for a play in the park! Love the pictures of St. Paul’s too – they’re gorgeous!
Miles loves being the center of attention, can you tell? We just got back from the park and now the storm is settling in so perfect timing. Hopefully he’ll sleep on his blanket the rest of the day. Fingers crossed for your parents and their safe arrival.
Thanks :). What are you getting? Snow, rain? At least it gives you lots of reading time!
Wind gusts (70mph) and rain. I’m sure my internet will go down soon, which gives even more time for reading.
Awwww Miles as Santa Paws – how cute is that!! 😀 Happy Holidays to you and your loved ones too ❤
Thanks! You too!
I love that – Santa Paws 🙂
It’s so cute!
He he 😀
Yes the lovely Miles looks as if he has the weight of the world in the exterior shot! He looks like a love. Merry xmas.
Ah thanks, Merry Christmas to you too. Miles is such a sweet dog and such a good sport to put up with this. Happy New Year!
Miles…. I LOVE you!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Aw, he smiled at that. Animals are just so darn cute. Have a wonderful holiday!
So cute 🙂
Shall miss you both! Catch ya in the new year. Have a good one!
Thanks. You too!
Miles looks very festive! And happy.. 🙂 Lovely pictures of St. Paul’s. Merry Christmas to you and yours TBM!!
Thanks Pix! I hope you and your loved ones have a wonderful holiday!
Miles is very festive looking !!!! I put a little reindeer thing on Buddy and he looked VERY indignant but I did manage to get a pretty decent shot of him before he slunk away. Holly had a cocktail dress that was about 10 sizes too small so she was not impressed at all as her bits were falling out all over the place. Micah said dressing animals up was a no no but it makes me laugh when I see one dressed up. 🙂 Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you, dear TBM!
You are much braver than me. We briefly considered putting the Santa jacket on Miles and then he gave us the stink eye so we stayed away. Poor Holly! It’s hard not to smile when you see how cute they look dressed up. And Miles loves the attention–just not outside. Happy holidays!
He needs the privacy of his own home, huh? 🙂
He just can’t focus when he thinks I have red ball for fetch. He’s a little OCD.
Haha!!! That makes sense. One track mind and all. 🙂
That sums up Miles! I wish I had his concentration.
Happy Holidays to you and your family!
And to you!
LOL.. Miles so obviously has got a modelling career ahead … look at that smile 😉
Have a great time altogether TBM .. See you back here soon x
Thanks Poppy. Have a wonderful holiday and see you soon 🙂
Great pictures! 🙂 Merry Christmas and happy new year to all of you!
And to you!
Lovely Miles, kisses for you 🙂 You are so beautiful. Blessing and Happiness. And Thank you dear TBM, I love you both. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, love, nia
Thanks Nia. You too!
and a Merry Christmas to you and yours, and may 2014 be all you wish yourself…
I hope you have a stellar 2014! Happy holidays.
I love that first shot – he looks like he’s smiling so big!!! Merry Christmas!!! xoxo
He’s like Buddy the Elf, “Smiling is my favorite!” Merry Christmas to all of you.
I like the outdoors Miles. Looks like the friendly little devil was just up to something mischievous!
Oh I can see that. He can be devious!
Miles looks so adorable. Happy New year to you. May all your dreams come true.
Thank you. You too!
Your dog is so adorable dressed up like Santa–TBM–I wish you the best Christmas ever–have fun and see you in a few days!
Miles says thanks! Have a wonderful holiday with your loved ones.
I love it – Santa Miles! Adorable!
Happy, Happy Holidays! See you next year.
I wish you and your family a wonderful holiday and a happy New Year Fergiemoto.
Got to love that smile 🙂 Merry Christmas!
Happy Holidays Letizia!
Aw, Miles is way too adorable! I love how happy he looks. Happy holidays!
Miles is usually a happy boy since he usually gets his way. I can’t say no to his cute face. Happy Holidays!
Brilliant – need costumes like that for mine! All the best to you, TBH, Miles and Atticus from us here 🙂
We could do a group photo…oh my, we may need several bottles of wine for us to deal with the shoot. Happy holidays!
Did I ever mention that I just adore Miles – and he actually really does smile for the camera.
Have a wonderful Christmas and New Year.
Miles loves the camera. I wonder if he was a model in a former life or a movie star–maybe from the 40s. Have a wonderful holiday Lynn!
Santa Paws!! love it. he’s so cute. he smiles and sits better than my kids did at our family photo shoot. Merry Christmas!
Oh it took some coaxing to get these shots and the better half was behind me with a toy. Bribery works well with Miles. Happy holidays!
Happy Christmas to you, TBM! Miles is too cute:-)
Thanks! Hope you are having a wonderful time! Happy New Year.
I love these pictures The Cathedral is definitely beautiful but Miles is awesome looking. He definitely puts me in the Christmas Spirit. Hope you have a great Christmas my friend!
And I hope you and your family had a marvelous time. Happy New Year to the Guat family!
Merry Christmas to you and yours! Have a great one!
Thanks! You too!
Cheers to all … and thanks to Miles for the holiday colors and smiles! Happy Holidays to you and yours.
Have a wonderful holiday Frank. Hopefully you’ll get to dance on New Years.
That’s the plan!
too cute! Merry Christmas and a Happy New year.
Thanks! You too!
Happy Holidays TBM! Miles in a Santa suit could melt the most Scrooged of hearts.
Ooo the next time I run into a Scrooge, I’ll test that theory. Happy Holidays!
He is just too adorable:)
Thanks. He knows it, which makes it harder for me to resist his charm.
Beautiful pic of Miles…and the lights 🙂
Merry Christmas and happy Holiday TBM 🙂
Thanks! I hope you had a great trip!
So funny. He looks cute in his costume.
Thanks. He was a good sport. We briefly thought of putting it on Att, but one look from him and we left him alone.
So adorable!! Happy New Year. Wishing you all the best in 2014!
Thank you! And happy new year to you!
what a patient wee lad Miles is…hope your Christmas was jolly
Miles is patient, unless it involves playing fetch. Just throw. I tried sitting outside yesterday to read and play fetch. He insisted I stop reading since I wasn’t fast enough!
Our Christmas was lovely. Hope you had a blast and wishing you a wonderful New Year!
It was lovely just hanging out with The Daughter. She is coming home for a bit on New Years Day so looking forward to that. I hope 2014 is a wonderful year for you my friend. Chevvy said to tell Miles she hopes he gets to play loads of fetch.
I love quiet holidays. The Better Half will be home soon and we plan on making a nice dinner tonight and watching movies. Have a wonderful time, Jo. And I wish you the best in 2014. Miles would love to play with Chevvy. Does Chevvy like to play the chase game? Miles is really good at that one as well.
The one where they go down on their haunches, tail in the air wagging, bark and then run around looking quite silly and cute…oh yes she does.
Yes! That’s the game. I don’t quite understand it, but Miles loves that game. They would be so cute together, but two terriers can be trouble. I know for a fact that Miles outsmarts me every day.
Miles looks so adorable!
I’m amazed, though, that he actually agreed to let you dress him up like that. Still, it was definitely worth it:-)
The pics of St. Paul’s were also beautiful.
Happy New Year!
Miles is patient, but when I took the jacket off, he rolled around on the carpet. He loves to be naked.
Happy New Year!
Miles looks adorable! He’s such a cutie. Happy New Year, TBM.
Happy New Year Patti. Hope all is well with you and your loved ones.
Happy New Year!!!
You too Frank!
Love all of them! Hope you had a good New Years Eve and have lots of travel and fun planned for 2014!
Thanks Geoff! Wishing you a wonderful 2014!
Oh Miles, you are the perfect Santa Paws.
Now I need to find him an Easter outfit!
A fun, magical holiday full of everything bright and joyful. Happy New Year to you and your family.
Yes I still believe in the magic. Thanks and you too!
More than 2 weeks without a post… What happened?
I took time off for the holidays. I actually just posted. Happy New Year! I hope all is well on your end.
Oh, well, hope you had a jolly good time!
Thank you! And I hope all is well at my end too. 😛 And at yours, also. 😀
We had a wonderful holiday, thanks. I do love this time of year and spending quality time with my loved ones.
Wishing you a wonderful 2014.
Thank you and the same to you too.
A little late but happy new year! Have a great 2014! Miles is a cutie.
It’s never too late. Happy New Year! And Miles says thanks.
