The Temperamental Super Model

I take Mabel Lou out to a nice sunny spot with a lovely busy green backdrop and no poop in view for her review for  Mr. Chewy and Fromm's Four Nutritionals Grain-Free Lamb with Cranberry Recipe Dog Treats in yesterday's post. Naturally, she had other ideas! It went like this:

I ask her to sit in my perfect spot. She finds another...my left thigh:

She won't move... I can't get a nice product shot from this angle:

I beg and plead and get her up, ask her to sit again. She chooses...my right calf! OY!

I beg and plead some more, get her up and she plops down... not in front of the lovely green bushes but with the mucky pool in the background. And a tree coming out of her head. And there's some poop... I get up and scoop and settle back in. I place the product next to her and...she won't look at me:

The chew shots go OK because she was eating....

I then want a smiley or something...licky lips... to close. I call her. She looks left.

I call her. She looks down....

I call her. She looks right....

Finally, after much begging and torturing her with a lamb and cranberry cookie over the camera,  I get a licky lip and

A happy beauty shot!

I swear, photography is rough when your model is so demanding and wants to direct the shoot!

Creekhiker was not compensated in any way for this review. Mabel Lou was given a free bag of dog treats to eat - or not - by MrChewy.com

Your telling of this photo shoot sounds just like me trying to get some shots of Millie in her Halloween costume/ball gown. She will let me photograph her when things are all casual, but try anything formal and she is all shy and acts like she is being punished.

Personally, I think independence is an attractive quality. She's a cutie, that Mabel!

Nice camera evasion Mabel!!! OMD, Ma always puts a liver treatie in her left hand right aboves the camera and takes the pic with her right hand and it usually results in lots of drools and me (kinda) lookin' at the camera!!
Since shes been bribin' me likes this since I was a wee one, I knows the drill and just puts up with it. Who doesn't want a treatie anyhu?! Right?!
You just have to remember to make the peeps work for it!! hehehe
