This is insanity at it's finest.
Every year we gather all of the double-digit hounds together for their senior portrait. It is always a wee bit of a challenge and can often lead to a snarky remark or two between Karen and I. Normally when the leashes come out, that means we going for a ride in the car and the excitement begins. Going out to the backyard to stand still for a picture with other dogs is not fun and Karen usually ends up entwined in leashes.
So this year, I decided to combine a little Photoshop with the photos. 'This is the largest group of double-digits we've ever had. I set the tripod up and placed markers for each of the dogs. One by one, Karen led them out and taunted them with a treat. I made an image of each dog and then layered and masked the daylights out of them in Photoshop.
I now what I'd do differently, maybe in August when Talley turns 10.
Without further ado, here's the gang and their age, left to right.
