Oh, you don't have to worry about my crew. They don't have to wait for Santa to get spoiled! They get really excited when they see/hear the box of 'dog costumes' come out because they know that means Mama's bustin' out *really* good treats! :ROFLMAO:
Now that we're down to only two dogs, it's almost boring to set up our holiday pose. Back in 2017 when we still had four I actually managed to pull off 'The Muttcracker'. Now THAT was an interesting challenge.

Here we had Charlie as the Nutcracker prince, Beckett as the evil rat-terrier king, Abby as sweet Clara, and Dinah as the Sugarplum Fairy.
We lost Charlie the following year, so down to three for 2018 I went with a Christmas Elf in the sleigh with a couple of beautiful reindogs.

Yes, my dogs are very good sports (and also really, really like rotisserie chicken! lol)

Abby was a bit camera shy in day to day life. She wouldn't run, but I definitely got more 'turned away head' shots of her than nice ones of her looking at the camera. But even she would be more than cooperative when we'd play 'dress up' because it meant getting rotisserie chicken (or something similarly irresistible!) I always make worth their while to cooperate with my silly human games.

that's what I was thinking!! I figured BKH must have a LOT of human servants helping round up and hold all the 'kids'! Not to mention, have a quick trigger finger on that cam!

Ha, I WAS thinking (for a foolish moment) of trying to get our (4) year and a half old cats to sit/lay/lounge/stay in front of the Christmas tree for a pic, then laughed at my moment of lunacy! Yeah, right, 4 cats actually staying in one spot long enough for me to pull the trigger. Hell, even when they DO lay sorta maybe almost on the same bed SLEEPING, by the time I run grab the camera, at least ONE has whispered my intent to the others and splits before I get back!

I applaud your 'puppy training' techniques, BKH; don't suppose you also got Halloween pics, do ya? Do ya????? heh heh :D:eek::oops::rolleyes:;)

Oh, cats are a whole 'nother level of picture skills - dogs are WAY easier! We go slowly, do many short "training/playing" sessions, especially when they're working on a new costume or prop. It took two long weeks to get Beckett to sit in that sleigh - he was terrified of it when it first came into the house (or he pretended to be so he could get extra chicken! lol)
I didn't do Halloween last year, but we did do bunny ears for Easter.

okay, seriously, can you REALLY look at this pic and say out loud; 'my, the kids look happy!' I hope their expression changed when the rotiisserie got to them! :p:cool: And, do you ever wonder if they're thinkin' 'Man! Look how we've got them trained to fuss over us--TWO weeks and STILL getting dem treats!'

Every time they moved the stupid ears kept falling off! They were trying to hold as still as they possibly could (while plotting their revenge) :ROFLMAO:

Sad for the loss of your dog but great you are rescuing a poor pup from the shelter. What kind of breed mix is he?

Had to look that Carlino name up. So they are also called a Dutch Bulldog or pugs. Looks like maybe German Shepherd or Husky markings too in the mix or ?
