Do the "jimmy"

If you haven't tried it, you must learn how to "jimmy", a modeling pose named by the famous Pug (formally, Puglet Baconator) of The Daily Puglet.  I have found the "jimmy" to have treat giving powers that my parents and most humans can not resist!  Not only that, but it's great practice to get ready for my modeling shoot for 1000 Pugs!  You see, Pug's human has started this awesome campaign to raise money for pug rescues across the US and even Canada!  I really, really want to one of the 1000!  I bet you do too!  So here are a few pictures of me doing the "jimmy" to get you inspired.

The straight forward "jimmy":

at home
The profile "jimmy":

waiting for dad to come home
 The outdoor "jimmy":

Long Grove Village IL
The side saddle "jimmy":

in my Bowser Donut bed
The orb "jimmy":

Treat, PLEASE!  Pretty please with whippy and a cherry on top?
 The I'm not too sick to "jimmy" "jimmy":

at local emergency vet (for ear infection one or two months ago)
The irritated "jimmy":

Get that camera out of my face...or else!
The traveling "jimmy":

Hotel Monaco, Chicago IL
I'm not as polished as Pug is (and have never done it on command), but practice makes perfect!  So come on everyone, let's do the "jimmy" together!

Oh Payton you are the cutest "jimmy" ever !!!!!!!!!!!! love every single pic!!!!! The irritated jimmy is the best hahaha :) I can wait for your modeling to Puglet's Human, and for the book, so I'll "have you" in my home like forever :) Pucia also can do jimmy, but I call it "leżeć" which means lay down. I taught her in like 10 minuts but treat must be involved :) have a nice week Payton :)

I can't decide which is my favorite. I'm leaning toward orb and irritated.

I do the jimmy on command, but don't have the depth you bring to the trick.

Minnie and Mack said...

Hi Payton! Mack was gaga over all the cute pictures of you! We are also excited about 1000Pugs and hope Puglet and his human come to the Washington DC area so we can participate. No one posses like Puglet but you are a close second.

We are going to practice our "jimmy" posses to get ready.

Drools and licks,
Minnie and Mack XOX

I think we should call this the "Payton"!

Salinger The Pug said...

I agree with Lola! This is DEFINITELY the "PAYTON"!

I keep trying to perfect my many faces, but they all come out looking like I just got tragic news (that's what Aunt Sarah says about me anyway).

I'll keep trying! Maybe mom needs to bust out better snackables!


Mia said...

Payton, you do the "jimmy" so well!! I've never done it on command and when I do finally spring it on the momma, her camera is no where to be found!! hehehehe!! So hope you get to be one of the 1000 Pugs!!!



Noodles said...

You are queen of the "Jimmy." I do it once in a while but never get results. Now when I smile or look intrigued (whatever that means cuz I do not know) that is another story.
Love Noodles

A Day in the Life of Pugs said...

They are ALL fabulous poses - you should be a model! Good Luck ... you make a great "Jimmy"! Pug Hugs, Zoe, Peyton, Webster and Liberty

Tiffy said...

Who knew you had so many Jimmy's in you? You look totally adorable in all the poses and Momma is all oohing and ahhing over the pics. I cannot Jimmy or Payton or anything else. Maybe I need to come up with the Tiffy, whatever that is.

You are definitely going to be part of 1000 pugs!


Lola said...

Oh Payton, you really have your "jimmy's" down! My favorite is your Irritated Jimmy!

Frank The Tank said...

I Love your "Jimmy" photos Payton! My personal favorite is the 'Im not to sick to "Jimmy" Jimmy' so cute and adorable bless you! I'm doing a "Jimmy" right now, I can do them on command! I agree with Tiffy we need to do our own poses, so other pugs can do the 'Payton' the 'Tiffy' and 'The Frank' it would be pug-pose-tactic! Love and pHUGS Frank x x x x

Hank said...

OMG......the irritated Jimmy!!! LOL!!!!!!!

Tweedles -- that's me said...

You are an expert!

Keep it up Payton.... humans eat those kinds of poses up. Guaranteed to get you lots of cookies!

Meredith LeBlanc said...

We just read on Puglet's blog you need lots of Juju ~ so we're sending it your way to you and your family.

Can you feel the juju? We love you!

Meredith & Scarlet

Suzy said...

I love the "stink eye jimmy", lol. Noodles said you needed some good juju so I'm sending bunches & bunches of it xoxo

Gracie the Agility Pug said...

Here's my juju. Hoping your ear turns out to be nothing, and you're back to jimmying in no time. Hugs, girlfriend.

Archie and Melissa said...

hi payton!
oh sweetie! we are just getting caught up!
we are thinking of you!
your photos made us smile and we are sending you huge hugs and off to read your previuos post!
xoxoxo said...

Payton, you are a pro at the Jimmy. I hope you got LOTS of treats for that expertise. My parents make me do Jimmies to get treats so of course I do them on command - only if a treat is guaranteed first. I love that in some of the photos, your arms are completely tucked under your body! How do you do that?!

And what's this I hear about needing some good uju? I hope you are doing ok. I'll send all the Easy Coast good juju I can your way.

Suki said...

Hi Payton,
Still concentrating on the positive juju!
