A Very Annie Christmas


I really wanted to get a photo of Annie with a Santa hat on.
But I knew this wasn't going to be easy.

Hey, Annie, come here, girl!


I enlisted some help.

Donny, my 11 year old, tried to put the hat on her while I took photos.

But, the photos look strange with him holding it on her head...
especially with his alien green cast.



But, Annie didn't like that hat, no matter how may treats we kept giving her.



It took about 50 photos to get this one.
This one was good.
She's looking right at me.
and the hat is on.
BUT, she's not smiling.



Here we go, here's the smile.
But, darnit, Donny's hand is in the photo.



I think we're going to have to go with this one as the best...





But, then there's this one.
The standout photo of all the others...



Oh, Annie.

What a sweet girl! I've only got cats to torture, and it's no fun when you're getting scratched to death trying to dress them up! :D

Rudee said...

She may hate the hat but it looks like she loves the attention. What a sweet faced pooch you have!

Your EG Tour Guide said...

I'm impressed that the hat stayed on long enough for you to get the photo! LOL

Justine said...

I could never get tired of looking at that cute fuzzy face! Poor Annie, the shit you put her through for photo ops!

Justine :o )

I love the picture you chose for the Christmas card, even without the smile. Just adorable.

how cute! You've got more patience that I do, I gave up with the pet christmas photo years ago :)

Blissful Babe said...

OMG that is so funny! So cute, too! What a good girl, Annie!

I would try doing that with my cats, but, I would prefer to leave my flesh ON my body. Not under their nails...

Shannon said...

I don't think I could get Izzie to do that... she's so skittish, the doofus dog freaks out when the wind rustles the leaves... I don't know what she'd do if I tried to put something on her head.

Seriously.

Reader Wil said...

Wonderful set of photos telling the story of the dog and her hat!

Carletta said...

The Christmas card is wonderful.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Rose said...

I am with Annie, I don't like hats either! But she is adorable in it!

Momo Fali said...

She's so cute! She looks so much like my lab, on whom we tried to put reindeer antlers. She had none of that though! I didn't think about a hat!

fishing guy said...

Rhea: You certainly kept trying until you got a neat photo for christmas.

I'm sure Annie thinks she is just too dignified to be seen with a silly hat on.

Shes adorable :)

Annie which way you look at it, that's a great effort, Rhea!

BJ Roan said...

Reminds me of the year I tried to take Willie's picture in a Santa hat. I finally got one, too, but he wasn't smiling either. Great series!

Gretchen said...

Our Aphrodite doesn't like wearing hats either. She'll wear the reindeer headband for about two seconds then rip it off. Cute series of all you went through to get the shot. Have a wonderful Sunday! :)

Annie does put up with a lot of shenanigans with you guys :-) Especially like when you decide to hog tie her.

You could have picniked her hat on...
