Isn’t he just adorable? He steals my heart almost every day with his gentle kisses and requests for butt rubs. Since Mags gets a blog day each week, I wanted to feature the fabulous collie today. Also, I had this great idea for a posed photo, so I headed out and bought those terrible chalky sweetheart candies. My inspiration was to have the dogs facing each other with their paws and the candies between them.
But this was as good as I could get. While Merlin is the BEST DOG IN THE UNIVERSE, he is not the best at posing in an exact position. (Also? His nose is totally in the way. Poor guy.) Oh sure, he’ll lay down and stay for you all day, but he’ll shift his weight and get comfortable on his old bones. And should you try to make any adjustments to his feet, you get a stern look and the hint of a growl. So this attempt wasn’t going as I had planned.
Luckily, Mags is a FANTASTIC model (stunning, really) and I got this one set up here. I really wanted to redo the heart (more centered) once her paws shifted, but I also didn’t want to press my luck. Maybe next year I’ll be a touch more of a perfectionist. Still, you get the idea. I love these guys :)
