As you may have noticed from his pictures, Probert is just about the cutest thing on four legs. Despite his regular bouts of "the crazies," he can be a very well-behaved little guy in front of a camera.
At the time he was adopted, his rescue was working on collecting pictures to be used as Christmas cards to raise funds. I happened to know a great photographer, Lorrie Beard, and took Probert so she could work her magic. Having only lived with us for a week, Probert still behaved well enough to get a fantastic picture for the Christmas cards.
The next week, we were contacted by Little Darling about participating in the first ever Pinups for Pitbulls calendar. We showed up and Probert posed like a little pro with a more experienced pinup by his side. The result was fantastic.
For the 2008 Pinups for Pitbulls calendar, I applied with all of the Brown Dogs. To my surprise, we got in and went to NJ for our photo shoot with Bombshell Mandy of Bombshell Pinups. My friends Carrie and Scott were kind enough to accompany us to help with "dog wrangling" duties. I was strapped so tightly into a corset that I could barely move, so it was a blessing to have them there! Only two dogs made it into the final calendar shot (you try getting these three dogs to sit still for a photo!) and of course Probert was one of them (Wrigs was left out, as he and Maizy were alternating on who was acting crazy). While we will not appear in the 2009 calendar, we still LOVE Pinups for Pitbulls and will be helping them out again this year in other ways.
Anyway, Probert hasn't done any "work" in several months, but he still hangs around the house looking photgenic, so maybe he should get back out there! He loves helping to raise money for other pups just like him!
