in her head about the perfect picture.
She often wonders how many of you do it -
your pictures are so perfect
and you actually embody
the holiday spirit.
Mom is neither a dog trainer
or a photographer;
she might as well get that
in her curly little head.
She has dreams of
Java wearing a Santa Hat
and the rest of us sitting quietly about
as he reads us a story.
Or Java with his reindeer antlers on
pulling a sleigh
that we are sitting on
wearing our little holiday scarves
Or a picture of the stairs
with all of us sticking
our heads out.
How do people get these photos?
They must have 2 people per dog,
plus a tripod.
Well Mom needs to start with the tripod
and then we'll see about the visitors.
First, Piper would have to "own" the tripod,
Lilly would have to sit on the lap
of every visitor,
Carrleigh would run under the bed
Java would lick everyone.
Well Mom tries
and here are her failures:Can't get all of me in the lens, can you?
I might try to look cute,
but are you on my level?
Did I drop part of that treat?
