how to take a group picture





... it all started like this:
There is no set up in this photo. 
My usual morning routine is ... after feeding the dogs, we will go into the garden, have a little play and do a bit of training. I always start the training with Sipzie and these boys have to STAY on the decking until I release them.

and little did I know, here comes the sneaky kitty ...

... trying to tease the boys
look at how well-behaved these boys are, they weren't distracted by the naughty kitty at all. 
They only have their eyes on their mummy!


then, I realised this is a good opportunity to have a group photo since everyone is out and my camera is handy ...
I have asked Seagull and Sipzie to join the group, there is no particular set up but these two dogs just slot in between the three boys


of course I noticed Samber is missing, so I went to fetch her ...
all the boys were patiently STAY in position but Sipzie came with me to fetch our little girl, then I saw the gap between Sing and Seagull, so I put Samber in and Sipzie decided she wanted to be in the gap too!


just as I ready for more shots ...
I saw the kitty sneaking from behind Saturn, GREAT! 
This is our The KNIGHTS Shelties + kitty family photo!


sorry, I don't train cat, especially a naughty one like her ... all she wanted to do it to tease the dogs to play with her

FANTASTIC picture, and I love the kitty in the front. Maybe you could get a group shot of my pups, they are pretty resistent to the whole process, they are really good until they see the camera come out...LOL
