As you know, there has been a lot of talk around blogville about network nanny cameras - SPY cameras. I am here to tell all of my DWB furends to stop these plans in their tracks!! When my mom first talked about getting the camera, I thought it was so we could spy on my nemesis, as he spies on me.
As hard as it may be to believe, this was not the case. Not ONCE has she turned the camera on him. It's always on us!!

It's even caught mom a time or two. Here she is with Phoeny working on her work computer AND my laptop.
And with Phoenix again - who I believe was dictating her Christmas list at the time.
This next exhibit is slightly embarrassing but I am presenting this as evidence AGAINST spy cams... you never know what your camera will catch you doing! (I did warn Sarge that I was a bit of a lap dog. I hope he's not appalled!)
We've had this eye in the sky spying on us for so long, there's even a picture of us all crammed into the old recliner with Ginger at our feet!
Sure, mom sold me (and papa) on it because it would be a great way to check in on our aging sister, Ginger. (And my nemesis, the squirrel, so I thought!)
And when Ginger's seizures started, this was pretty much the only way papa was able to get mom out of the house.
The four of us, including the elusive Cali Bear!!I can't begin to tell you what a damper this has put on our weekday adventures. We are constantly rescheduling poker tournaments and dogs only happy hours.
I can't open the baby gate to take a walk around downstairs without having to take a peek to see if the camera is spying on me. I can't nap in my crate by papa's chair without that thing whirling down to look at me through the plants. It's no way to live.
Phoenix tried to disconnect it one time to put it up outside for my nemesis.. but it caught her in the very act!!
Mom even convinced Aunt Katie to get one of these spy machines for my cousins!!
They've caught Molly stealing socks!
Getting caught "Cali-Style" - that's not right.
(Notice I didn't include her face to protect her dignity.)
When I wait for my friends to show up for a late night game of darts downstairs, I feel that beady black camera eye staring at me.
She even hooked me up with my OWN camera... click here for that post.
It was fun at first but it was getting out of control so... it died a sudden death. Oops...
I'm not telling you this for your condolences. I'm telling you this so you can help stop this nanny cam movement!!
