Thin Chance.

A few days ago I tried, yet again, to get a portrait of the three hounds together. I thought a box of Wheat Thins would be the way to go, since all three of them crave the things. So out I went with the bright yellow box, and out the three of them followed.

They stood very still for me individually, knowing that after roughly 4 or 5 clicks they'd get a reward. Here's how their portrait session went…

No-no, Yorkie – don't look at the box. Look at me!

Tp 12

Much better.

Don't look so inconvenienced.

Tp 6

Besides, you look cute with that snowflake on your face.

Okay, I want all three of you together. Together now, okay? Come on, let's go!

Tp 13

Thanks, Tasha.. now you come here too, Yorkie!

Tp 5

Oh, okay.. um, that's great Friday, but I called the Yorkie, and I need you to back up a bit.

Tp 11

Yes, good boy. I know you're waiting. But I need the Yorkie.

Yes! Thank you! Progress.

Tp 14

Perfect! Stay there! (Tasha, why is your eye twitching?)

Tp 10

Okay, Friday, come on over!

Tp 9

That means you have to get up and move.

And don't look so inconvenienced.

Tp 4

This is the best you can do?

I give up.

Tp 7

Did you dogs ever see the Beethoven movie? The one with the killer vet? Yeah, I'm calling him to do your rabies shots.

This isn't over.

    lol! Trying to get people in a picture together is hard enough. 3 dogs? Forget it!! lol! Great pics of the individuals. And great one of the two little ones too! You’re getting there!

    You are way too funny with your cute adorable irrestible loving puppies. Their faces speaks the words that they are thinking…their facial expressions is just way too cute and funny.
    Now Paulette…you be nice to your puppies okay….you give them lots of goodies to eat.
    Don’t be too hard on them when they go get their shots…give them lots of hugs and cuddle them into your arms.
    Take care & Happy Designing/Stitching

    I laughed so hard I was crying! I do understand this! It is as bad as trying to get all my grandkids together at one time! Good try though!
    Thanks for your lovely designs! I love them.
