Practicing for Christmas

Y'all remember how our Christmas pictures went last year, many outtakes in order to get a good one. Well, today we had a little test run on the family pic. Well, part of the family pic.

I had worked on the entry to our place. Bought some mums. Had the husband help me with a welcome sign. Got it all purty and the husband said hey, let me take your pic with the dogs. Okay! Of course, Pepper was too busy to be bothered with a picture. She was no where to be found. Zena, Diesel and Harley obliged me though. However, I couldn't wrangle them all at once. I only managed to get two at a time in a picture. And I had my hands full with just two!

Zena is all about the love.

The Lick


Harley and Diesel didn't know what to think about it.

Group


Then Harley drew the line! Diesel intruded into his personal space!

Mad Harley


Diesel was being such a good boy. Notice the bone. It keeps him from chewing on my arm, leg, finger, pant leg, etc. The rawhide bone is a necessity right now!

Me and Diesel


There may be hope for the Christmas pic. Maybe...

Hee hee! I remember your challnege from last year. I think the Christmas pic should be on of those funny ones of you all.....since that best represents how it really is to pose with the pups for a photo around your place, LOL!

I've threatened to put up our Christmas Tree next month, just so we can do a Christmas Photo, and have it ready to mail out before the 3rd week in December:-)

You did a great job getting the place all "purtied up"!
