I'm not sure this one is OK because it's her natural stare, so seems a bit cruel to deem it 'funny' but I think this is all I've got!

If she is eating and no poopies are coming out, then you definitely have a problem, most likely one that isn't very serious if you get it taken care of sooner rather than later. (If you let it go...

Whoever does the photos for your site does a really amazing job!
