I'm LOLing at all of the comments about me 'getting him to pose'... etc.

This is a puppy. I tried and tried to get him to 'pose'... gave him treats for wearing the glasses... and still he wasn't happy, although he LOVES treats.

So, this is a quick snap amongst many attempts. And he didn't learn a thing from the book. *grin*

Buster and I are LOVING this score!

We had a difficult time coming to an agreement on what to do. He was mostly okay with the glasses thing, but... oddly enough... did NOT want to put his foot on the book.

I tried and he was uncomfortable, so I took him and his brother out to run in the yard. When he came back in, he was exhausted and lay down. I put the glasses on (rubber band keeping the stems together) and then... at the last second, slid the book under his paw.

Done deal. He got a good treat for both sessions. Good boy.

Love the expression - although I'm guessing that it really is closer to, "Why are you doing this to me?: :) Very nicely composed as well!

OK how did you get your pup to wear the glasses/pose like that. I love the lighing...I love the subject, and this really works great as a black and white.
