Christmas Photo Outtakes

We attempted to make our Christmas card picture this morning. Of course we didn't do it the last two weekends when the weather was perfect. We waited till it was windy.

We took the dogs out for a walk, in hopes to get some of their pent up energy out. Then we figured we'd give it a go. Enjoy the outtakes!


I guess I was taking up too much of the bench. Pepper could only get her nose poked out.

So many paws flyin' around, I had a wardrobe malfunction!

outtake 2


I promise I didn't break down crying! Really!

Outtake 3


Diesel and Foxy fightin' under the bench.

Outtake 4


Resuming their fight in my lap.

Outtake 5


Diesel decided he had enough. He ran behind the tripod and laid down!

Outtake 6

Amazingly all the dogs did pretty well. I think we did manage to get a good picture. You'll have to wait for that one though!

Those out takes are so funny - I'm sure that our pictures won't be any easier to do with our Berner pup! As soon as the camera comes out, he's in your face! Can't wait to see the best one!

Just finished reading about Mikey's Casper and came over here. Needed this pick-me-upper! What a hoot!

I was trying to get my Saint and my Shepherd to sit together today for a picture and they were nothing but a couple of uncoordinated hounddogs. I gave up.

Looks like the new dog is here to stay! ;)

Pony Girl said...

We never can do it but I finally got a remote, but I still don't think we can do it with a Jackie Jo in the family!!!! lol!!! your husband is so good natured...mine always ruins the picture...seriously!!!! Our wedding pictures you would have thought it was a shotgun wedding!!!!!! He cried the whole time!

Faithful said...

Ha! Ha! Too funny! That so reminds me of my family after scrambling around tryin' to get everybody to smile at the camera..all of a sudden somebody's had about enough and walks off! You two are miracle workers if you got them all to sit there and say CHEESE!!!

City girl turned Country Girl said...

Does Diesel do anything at slow speed??? He makes me laugh every time I see him galloping off to something.

Christina said...

You are brave to even attempt a picture with so much "energy" running around! Cant wait to see the real picture!
