First, I'm quite possibly the least crafty person ever. I wandered around Joann Fabric looking like a lost puppy. And then I spent probably twice as much money as I needed to because I had no idea what to buy. The plan was grab some wooden numbers, some glue & some twine.
Do you know how many types of glue they sell? A lot. I mean, a whole lot. Tacky glue, Krazy glue, Super glue, Wood glue... I could go on.
I finally bought Tacky glue and Krazy glue, 500 yards of twine that I'll never need again, and some wooden numbers. I glued the numbers on crooked and not evenly spaced and I didn't even paint them so I'm pretty sure they barely showed up in the pictures.
My final brilliant idea? Have a friend who does some pet photography swing by literally 10 minutes after we get home from work (and right after Winnie has been in her crate for 8 hours) and attempt to get both dogs to sit for pictures.
I'm sure you can imagine how that went. Well, it probably went worse than you imagined. For the first half at least. Once Winnie figured out that this was the most boring game ever where you sit still for 5 minutes and then your toy gets thrown once, she was okay. Annabelle never cooperated but we expected that.
Oh, and also, I wore black jeans and of course ended up with the black dog sitting by me. So I'm sure Winnie & I just look like one black blob in most of the pictures.
Soon I should have some pretty interesting pictures to show you. I'm sure there's at least half a dog missing in most of them. And some pretty stellar pissed off faces from Annabelle, the moodiest dog in the world. I'm also certain that Winnie's tongue is hanging out of her mouth in every. single. picture.
So thanks, Pinterest, for making something that's nearly impossible look super easy... again.
