The Annual 'Christmas Dog Torture'

It's that time of year again - time to force my squirmy pups to sit together long enough to get a photo of them for our Christmas card.  This is quite a hard task, because bulldogs are super silly, squirmy and stubborn. Plus my dad has a short temper when it comes to trying to get them to sit still. One of us tries to pose them, while the other does the photos, then we switch. The car-shaped antique baby stroller is my Mom's Christmas present this year. The doll is one of hers.

 Here, two spoiled and demanding super models try to shrug off the photo shoot.

Boris pulls a Diva act and storms off the photo shoot, is search of a bush to pee on.

Below, Boris storms off set again, approaching the photographer with his thoughts of how the photos should be done, and a request for some goodies.

"We're getting grumpy"

and finally, out of about 20 shots, we get one that passes as good enough for the card!

LOL, awww that is too funny! The card pic looks really great, though. What good pups! I knew a gal who had 5 dogs and 2 hairless cats. She took pics of each of them and put them all together in photoshop. The pic looked great but seeing what you had to go through for a good pic, I think she cheated! :)

Yeah, the last photo does look like they're pretty happy. :-) I showed this post to my dogs just so they'd appreciate me. LOL

hahah! i do the same thing with my pugs and it's so frustrating. dangling food helps, but also promotes a ridiculous drooly face for photos! love this post, it made me smile!
