Amber & Possibly the Worst Santa Ever

Postby Rory's Dad » Sat Dec 07, 2013 8:09 pm

But...she actually loved the Grinch. Maybe it's an indication of her true temperment.

Great photo!! Amber sure has grown and looks great. Who the heck has the Grinch and a bad looking Santa? As for her temperament, you'll just have to adapt to it.

She actually posed for the photo? What a good girl! I have to grovel to get my Chestnut to stand still for a picture.

Our Grinch is actually less creepy than this one. He wears actual movie prosthetics and makeup. I'm trying to get the pictures of us with him to post now.

Funny actually, but the grinch actually sought her out in the store. He was looking for Amber while other dogs were in line for pictures. Santa was wondering if she was an Akita????????

She was fine posing for a bit, but in typical Amber (chow) fashion, she was done after about 30 seconds. They did well to snap the photo before she was done with Santa.

Thinking i want to really test them next weekend with Rory. He takes a much better photo, but has less patience with the pomp and circumstance.

Amber is such a cutie, you can really see the mischief in her eyes. Cocoa won't be going to see Santa this year, last year she was at the end of her leash trying to get away from him :shock: so I decided to skip it this year. She will of course still get a stocking full of treats!

As far as worst Santa ever I think ours give yours a run for their money.

2011

and last year with Cocoa as far away from Santa as she can get:

Have to say 2012 was a better Santa than 2011.

I don't have a digital copy of her puppy Santa picture but he was even worse, skinniest Santa I had ever seen. :D

LOL Cocoa, you may be right on the Santa Quality. It really was funny though to be in the middle of Petco and we have Santa asking if Amber was an Akita...Personally i dont see any similarities among the breeds. If he wondered if she was a Pom on steroids i could follow...

We are going to bring Rory up next weekend. Don't really need any photos of him, he is like a 1st child and we have hundreds of good pics of him, but it's still nice to timeline them. Amber is different, we dont try quite so hard and she just doesnt photo well for some strange reason. Rory is very cam friendly and its hard to get a bad one. Go figure...

Next weekend is a down weekend for Rory. No show until Jan 4th, so we will get him out and about to meet the adoring public (LOL). Actually that does happen, more that they are chows rather than individuals. They are so unusual here (except for everyone that used to own one or had a cousin that bred them,etc) they are instant rock stars everytime we head out.

Same here, when we are out walking with other dogs Cocoa gets all the attention and rock star is always what I call her when that happens. And oh yeah the number of people who have "used to own one, had a relative/neighbor who owned or bred them and of course the I/my sister/friend/etc. was bitten by a chow". Funny thing is that in the over 20 years that I have had chows (and I have been living in the same area the whole time) I can count on one hand (with fingers left over) the number of chows I have met or seen here. :?

Yep, us to. We have lived at same address for 17 years. Amber and Rory are our 3rd and 4th chows. Never seen or met another in town. Must be Ghost Chows...or chows that never get out in public which explains the bite stories. We spent over a year trying to get Rory some show pts and couldn't even get competition in that arena until i made some associations in the next state over. Amazingly (we missed it due to scheduling conflict), but a recent show had 27 Chow entries.

Wow,Very obedient Amber! I think the Grinch isn't that scary and you'll just have to get use to her temperament. She's a cutie anyway!
