Quincy and Bentley Do Not Cooperate
The boys got new sweaters from out awesome friend Jill, and they wore them on our outing to the plant nursery. This particular nursery goes all out for the holidays, so it’s always fun to browse, and there are a lot of great settings for pictures. Just inside the main gate I found a nice spot to take a picture of them. I figured I’d just have them sit real quick, snap a picture, and we’d be on our way. (Ok, stop laughing. I was being terribly optimistic)
Of course, it’s never that easy. Quincy and Bentley do not cooperate. What I imagined would be “sit, stay *click* good boys!” turned into “Bentley sit, Quincy sit, good… Bentley sit, Quincy… Bentley get back here. Quincy sit. Good boy. Bentley sit…. No, Quincy, sit… Ok, crap, I mean… (“ok” is their release word) Sit! Bentley…. Come back here… Quincy!”
At this point I heard giggling behind me. I looked over my shoulder and there were no less than TEN people standing there watching this circus. TEN!
I hurried to get them sitting and snapped a couple quick picture, then stood to flee in embarrassment. Someone from the crowd called out “did you get it?” I called back “yes, thank you!” and ran away to hide.
I tried again a little later, and they cooperated a little better! And this time we didn’t draw a crowd, thank goodness! As much as I enjoy having someone admire my dogs, a crowd of people watching me struggle with these little goobers is a bit much!
