Lady, if you ask me to smile one more time….

Tonight was the big outing for the whole family. Christmas pictures. Yes, full on holiday, cheeseball, coordinating sweaters, family portraits, and yes, I am that lame. I used to love to get G-man’s pictures done when he was younger. If he were a kid, he’d probably have come back and kick my ass in his adult years.

The Meester has never had an opportunity to have his picture professionally taken with someone. I’m not sure that the whole experience was exactly what he expected. The photographers aren’t exactly William Wegman, and our dog, while he’s pretty well behaved and listens, has major ADD, and the patience of a 2 year old. You throw two adults with ADD into the mix, and I can assure you, that it isn’t pretty. The girl was making all sorts of random noises, and calling out “cookie” to get G-man’s attention. You can’t just call out “cookie” repeatedly to a dog whose whole entire life revolves around food. That and licking himself. I think the breaking point for the Meester, was when the photographer was forcing the dog to put his paws on top of the Meester’s back. This did not fly with my extremely stubborn dog who doesn’t like his personal space invaded, nor is anyone going to tell him what to fucking do. Not even for a cookie


We get to pick up our pictures tomorrow. It should be interesting to see how they turn out.

I’ve been dreading our family photos and can’t wait ’til they’re ready. It’s always a hoot!
