- Daily Dog Challenge "269. Neat or Messy" - this was actually the previous day's challenge
Short of using hair coloring, my options were a bit limited on this one. Thankfully, I had an appropriately colored blanket. My idea was a profile shot of one behind the other, hoping they would somewhat blend in with the blanket.
Confusion reigned when I tried to get them one behind the other, a pose I remember doing only once before.
As with most "only once before" shots, I quickly remembered why I didn't do it more often.
My initial impulse was to stand off to the side and call one forward while giving the other the stay sign.
This was clearly a stupid idea, as the boys were dancing everywhere except where I wanted them to be. Neither wanted to be "last", and the result was picture #2.
Luring made things worse, as it created the same effect as #2, with additional drooling.
Finally, it occurred to me that I was making it much harder than necessary (gee, what a surprise.)
So I moved in front of them and asked them to sit with a nice gap between them. I then moved to the side, prompting them to pivot in place. I threw up the stay sign, clicked the remote, and presto, we were done!
And here was today's Daily Dog Challenge: "270. "Feet"
Looks like it's time for the Day Spa!
