Moriarty (the cat) is the thief. He does go and eat Corey's food, and Corey is really patient and lets him.

This was extremely difficult to stage, however, when trying to do it alone! Either the dog was cooperating and the cat wasn't, or vice versa! I do wish they were a little closer together. I think it would have improved it quite a bit!

Thanks for the comments!

Oh -- and Moriarty only steals when he's hungry and out of his own food. So I had to add some tuna fish incentive.

Corey really wanted the tuna fish! So I'd have to give him some sort of a treat to get him to stay where he was while trying to get more tuna fish for Moriarty, while running quickly to the camera to push the button. (I really need to get a remote for my Sony!

two wonderful models .. doesnt get much better than this ..
and in my opinion they are the perfect distance apart ..
i can imagine how difficult this was to stage .. just having one animal do what you want can be hit and miss .. mainly miss with me and toddy .... so i take my hat off to you .. your photography skills, your patience and creating this for the challenge ..
many congratulations on an extremely endearing and unforgettable image and top five .. :)

Your dog is very well trained, not sure if he's a thief or patient! Good Rockwellian tones, already voted.
