Wanted: Christmas Pictures
Excerpted from the BouvTrain eMail list
with the author's permission

Wouldn't it be cute, I thought, to have a picture of both dogs in front of the lighted Christmas tree, one wearing reindeer antlers, the other an elf stocking cap?

Ok, first step, gather dogs.  Check.

Next step, get them both to sit in front of the tree and stay there.  Check.

Next, put blinking antlers on one of them--Red, as she is smiling and thinks this is pretty funny.

Next, get Kiwi to wear the stocking cap. Put cap on her head. Kiwi grabs cap by the end and flings it, then stands up. "Sit" I tell her. Grudgingly, she does. Go fetch cap from across room where it was flung. Put it back on Kiwi's head. Red stands up as Kiwi is getting all the attention and she wants to know what we are doing. "SIT", I say to Red, who does, but not in front of the tree.

Realign Red in front of tree. Readjust her antlers which are now sideways. Red is still smiling, as she still thinks this is pretty funny.

Move back to get both dogs and tree centered in picture. Kiwi lowers head to let cap slide off onto rug. Red gets up to get dropped cap, picks it up. Antlers fall to floor and Kiwi stands up too.

"SIT! SIT! SIT!" I say.

Both give me a look and sit.  Not in front of tree.

Get both dogs back in front of tree. "Lie down", I tell them. Plop--both hit the floor.

Decide that Kiwi does not think wearing the cap is cool, so put antlers on her, and the cap on Red, who is still smiling.

Red grabs end of cap, but leaves it on her head. Re-adjust cap so it is not in her mouth.

Kiwi pops up to sits and puts paw up to swipe antlers from her head.

"NO! SIT--I MEAN DOWN!!! ARRRGGGHHH! LEAVE THOSE THINGS ON YOUR HEADS" I say.

Both dogs look at each other, both smiling, and then look at me.

Snap! The picture is taken.
