Ok, so there’s a back-story here, but I’ll let you laugh at the photo first.
(click to enlarge)
The dog on the left is my dog, Brutus, and the one on the right is my friend’s dog, Boston (Boss is what we typically call him).
You may recall the previous post where I introduced Brutus to all of you, wherein I explained that I took over the ownership of a dog named Zeke and proceeded to change his name to Brutus. Well, the lady who gave him to me doesn’t know that I changed his name… and she started asking about him recently. She works with one of my best friends, so I got to hear the whole story. To summarize, she (the previous owner) said that if I was going to send out Christmas Cards with photos of the two dogs, she would LOVE to see them. Needless to say, I felt obligated to make a Christmas Card, even if I only gave one to my friend to share at work.
So, last Saturday, I went out hunting for: #1 Doggie Santa Hats and #2 Doggie Reindeer Antlers. I found neither. But I did find a couple of Christmas-y doggie outfits that were good enough. I felt SOOO silly buying them, especially when I was surrounded by 50-yr-old+ women who were looking for outfits for their “little Pookie”. But I pushed onward with my plan.
When I got home that evening, I set up a little studio-type area in my living room. I got the camera, tripod, lights, and flashes ready. I then wrangled the two dogs and got them dressed. And then I took their pictures.
In the picture above, you’ll notice that they’re wearing the same outfit. Well, Boss like it much more than Brutus did. I tell you this in case the expression on Brutus’ face didn’t scream this loud enough for you to hear.
This picture is the one that will actually be shared with the previous caretaker of Zeke. I think I like the Bah Humbug one better, though.
