Lucy and Paparazzi

Lucy loves going with me to take pics.
She sits in her little chair and watches and waits.
 But...she gets real mad when I start shooting pictures of her.
Silly little girl barks and barks.
Does this make me paparazzi?
 Paparazzi /pɑːpəˈrɑːtsi/, /pæpəˈrætsi/ (singular: (m) paparazzo Italian: [papaˈrattso] or (f) paparazza) are photographers who take pictures of athletes, entertainers, politicians, and other celebrities, usually while they are going about normal life routines. Paparazzi tend to be independent contractors, unaffiliated with any mainstream media organization and pictures taken are usually done so by taking advantage of any opportunity.[1] Many experts consider the behavior of paparazzi to be synonymous with stalking, and anti-stalking bills in many countries have tried to reduce harassment of public figures and celebrities, especially in regard to minor children. Many public figures and celebrities have expressed concern about the extent to which paparazzi invade their personal space

She's entertaining, athletic, still a minor and a celebrity in her own mind???
So, could I be considered paparazzi?

Perhaps Lucy is just a drama queen!

Perhaps I am too. LOL mine never seem intimidated.

Ha ha, I do see a bit of Alec Baldwin in that growl.

Debra, Ooh yes! She's a drama queen.

Steve, I don't take good pics, so I'm like that too.

Patti, hahaha...she hasn't punched me yet! But she sure puts up a fuss when I try to take pics of her.

Lucy is adorable. Maybe she likes having her photo taken but just doesn't want to admit it!

Martha, She is the funniest little dog I've ever had.

Remember way back when you weren't all that happy with what is now a celebrity. So the answer is yes you are.

turquoisemoon said...

Fly...hahaha! I guess you're right! And...do you remember when I claimed how much more I like winter than summer??? hahaha

Maybe it's her version of prancing in a photo shoot. Or she's telling you this is not her good side.

Ellen, I have no clue, but she does it every time. Distance shots are ok, but if I get the least bit close, she has a hissy fit. She's the funniest little dog and has such a mind of her own.
