I'm Back with Birthday Wishes!!!

August 3rd was Craig's birthday so the dogs and I decided to take pictures and make cards for dad.... It seemed like a great idea and had I had cooperative animals, it would have been a quick process. However, just like their mother, they were reluctant models...


Damn, a Jerry Lee leg is in the background...I could photoshop it out, but I decide to continue.

This shot is NOT going to work. It's not too precious when I am forcing her headshot with my hand...

Finally, Nadine strikes a fierce pose and we get the "cover" shot..... Now, it is time to tackle my most difficult subject-Jerry Lee

Okay...so far, so good. This isn't the BEST shot, but at least he's cooperating....or so I think, so I pray.


He reverts back to his reluctant pose and now I am forced to behave in the worst "stage-mom" fashion...this little "project" is now an hour and 15 minutes in and I am 45 minutes behind in my schedule...


Why look at this, I have caught my darling in mid-sneeze... I will let the picture speak for itself.

And finally, a cover shot is capture and the project is complete. By the way, Dad (aka Craig) loved the birthday cards. I am already starting to think about what we will be doing for Dad for Christmas... Any ideas??

You have got to find dog antlers by Christmas for the photo layout!

Pink-only Jerry Lee would have the most varied collection of pictures. I crack up just looking at him. And, I am glad to be back!!!

Dog-consistency is hard for a procrastinator like myself...

Tanya-yes, Jerry Lee and Kody were seperated at birth...I am totally convinced of that. As for the catered event...I have learned something. Start to take pictures before you consume vast amounts of wine... Let's just say that I had more questions than answers when I actually viewed them. :)

Buffalo-we did have some of those antlers, but I seem to recollect them being destroyed in a canine massacre...

Oh my God! You got much further than I would have gotten with my cat. Lulu would have ripped my throat out as I slept if I tried this with her! :)

Hallelujah!! You're back. I was beginning to wonder if you'd ever re-appear. Love that shot of Jerry Lee! It's hard getting animals to pose, isn't it? Christmas is stressful enough as it is, without trying to get the pets to do something co-operative. I say, put them in a box and wrap it up to give to Dad on Christmas morning. Kinda like "Christmas Vacation" and the old lady's cat. It's easy & I'm sure he'd love it! Who wouldn't want to get dogs for Christmas? I know I would!
