Henry: "Hey!"

Henry: "This is my shoot."

Henry: "Move it!"



Well, wasn't that rude.

Dog Blog Post #1089

I'd asked Henry to Park himself on the sofa for today's shoot and guess who goes sauntering by, just in time for World Sauntering Day.

Daily Dog Challenge "597. World Sauntering Day"

Mr. Henry

Behind the Scenes

Yes, of course this was set up.

No, perhaps surprisingly, it wasn't easy. Any shoot where the boys aren't doing the same thing is always a bit (and sometimes a lot!) more challenging.

First it was keeping Zachary from wanting to join Henry on the sofa.

Then it was stopping Henry from jumping off the sofa to join Zachary.

Then it was keeping Henry from moving when I called Zachary toward me. I'm off camera to the left and Zachary begins just off camera to the right, in a sit.

Then it was getting Zachary moving again after I'd just told Henry to stay.

And THEN, after ALL that, and I have the action on cue reliably, I start taking pictures only to find I have the camera on the wrong setting and it's refusing to fire because Zachary is moving.

Reset camera.
Reset Henry.
Reset Zachary.

Haha I love it! I'm not sure if Henry's saying "move it" or "be right there!" Either way very cool, and thanks for sharing about the chaotic shoot - very funny story!
