I have a feeling this is not going to do very well. My background was a mess, but I didn't have time to spritz it and let it hang out before photographing this. Not to mention, this was SUPER hard with my helper who is away at college. He ALWAYS helps wrangle the beasts. Thankfully Sawyer (the pup) is super treat motivated so he won't too much trouble. Scooter (the cat) was not super excited about being pulled in to model. Tried bribing my son to drive the 2 hours home to help with this (and other ideas) but the gas prices were just way too prohibitive, and he would have to go right back down.

Thank you ALL for your kind words/comments/votes. Yes lydiaI did have to cut and paste the cat and the dog together. IF I had my helper I could have pulled it off but Scooter pawing at the box would have totally distracted Sawyer (the dog) and it would not have had the laissez faire / defeatist attitude I was going for.

So cute!!

It was extended editing, so you could have pasted them anywhere you wanted them... if they didn't cooperate so well!
