And now the making of that photo…
Getting the antlers on the dog and getting him in position was pretty easy. He takes direction well, especially when there are treats involved.
Wrestling the cat into the Santa suit was a different story. And getting him into the “sleigh” was nearly impossible…the dog is getting anxious now!
This photo almost could have worked, except it’s blurry, and the “reindeer” is looking pretty emotionally battered by “santa.”
Finally the photographer comes to the rescue, holding the cat “just so” so we’ll be able to digitally insert him into a photo with the dog. And voila! A Christmas miracle shot after 15 minutes of painting an old drawer, an accidental discovery of a pet santa suit at Homesense, and a bag of pet treats! (Oh yeah, and Photoshop)
