Anatomy of a photoshoot...

One of the advantages to being married to TOG is that he's great at instigating play. First with our girls, and now with the Chihuahuas. Things start off as a simple photo shoot and quickly disintegrate into mayhem. Allow me...

Cassie had what we call a dangler yesterday. You'll understand if I just say there's a lot of hair in her business area. Occasionally, things don't go smoothly and require intervention. Sometimes quick blotting or sponging can save the day. Sometimes, a full on shower is required to alleviate the situation. After her shower, Cassie is so soft and fluffy and I was getting pictures of that.

Then Maddie got nervous and started grooming (her coping mechanism)...

Somehow we squeezed one more shot out...

During which Cassie closes her eyes, Fiona puffs her cheeks and Maddie's ear drops. I sense...

Guess who's the head howler...?

Cassie's wondering what her role is in all this... Maddie's going vampire...

Howl7

Cassie thinks she better comfort dad... this is short lived.

Howl8

Now Cassie has puffy cheeks.... look out!

Howl9

Let the biting begin!

Fiona is still carrying a tune! Maddie and Cassie are tuning up...

This is Maddie's demon face. She's not truly mad, just being assertive. When you're small, it's all about intimidating your adversary with the look on your face! They never actually bite, they just show off their teeth while howling at each other!

Maddie still felt bossy afterwards!
