Christmas Photo Shoot: The Outtakes

Ever try to wrangle three dogs into a Santa sack (heads sticking out, of course)? Yeah, it’s not easy, especially when one of the three—Dusty, of course—finds it comfy and decides to lie down.

Oops--have to lower the treats!

Oops–have to lower the treats!

All in all, in our attempt to get one good picture for our Christmas card, we took about 250 pictures—and the dogs weren’t in the Santa sack by the end.

Cora's the wiggliest one. She's always moving, and her tail is almost always wagging.

Dusty was very well behaved. During each of the three photo shoots (we gave them hours-long breaks between), once I said, “Stay,” he wouldn’t move. So I have about 80 pictures with Dusty in one position in all of them, and Cora and Hogan (both of whom we clearly need to work on “stay” with) in different spots. He was such a good boy!

This would've been the winner if Dusty's ear hadn't been inside out! (There's always something.)

Merry Christmas, everyone, from Cora, Dusty, and Hogan!
