Welcome to True Colours Thursday.
Our host for today is Miss Blue
and our colour for today is
RED & WHITE together.

Mom had this great idea
that she would get our
red bandanna photos
for Sue and the Porties.

She had visions of us all lined up
in a row on her little red bench
with a few western articles
highlighting the scene.

She still has that vision -
and it's still in her head -
not in print.

She thought it would be wise
to start us out one at at time
before she put the whole crew up there.
She started with Carrleigh -
it wasn't long before Carr knew
exactly what to do when
Mom gave the command,
"up on the bench".

Piper came next -
he would jump up, sit,
and then get right back off again.
He had very little staying power.

Then Mom tried two together -
Carrleigh and Lilly
seem to be discussing the matter.

By this time we were getting fairly worn down
and full of treats,
so we decided we could sit,
but she couldn't get all of us to
look at her at the same time
even if she was holding a treat in her mouth,
our leashes in one hand
and the camera in the other hand.

Finally, she did get us all to look the same way.

Next came the puppies
who are usually fairly cooperative,
but today was the exception.

They either wanted to
push each other off or

go in the opposite direction.

Check out
The Portuguese Water Blog
for the rules and regulations
for their annual bandanna day.

What terrific shots!!!
I can see myself in your post. There are times when I get this crazy vision in my head of what I'd love for a picture of our crew, and despite how hard I try, for me, many times it just doesn't turn out--But then when I'm casually snapping away, it all comes together...Go figure!!

I think the pictures are wonderful and you did a fantastic job of getting the dogs to sit even that long.

Alpha is shuddering at the thought of getting us together. That's just made her very nervous.

You look great though. We may be the blurred bandannas.
