Christmas Card Photos – These will not make Hallmark Cards

While I’m home recovering from surgery, I thought it would be the perfect time to take my Christmas Card photos of Charlie and Orso and get the cards ordered. Well I forgot the most important part of the whole task. You have to have dogs that will sit still and pose for me. Those two can be quite difficult when they want to be. It’s doesn’t help not having good range of motion on my part, but I think they were being cantankerous on purpose. Stinkers! Anyway below are some of the faces the brats made for me.

Charlie is definitely not happy to be part of picture.

Charlie with the crazy eye look he gives us all the time.

Orso – what more can I say?

Orso trying to get me his best face, what a goof.

      • He’s lovely :) Is he the better worker of your two? I’m asking because he has such an intelligent face.

      • He just likes to be where I am. He doesn’t particularly like hunting, just likes to follow Charlie in the field, he doesn’t care much for swimming, but adores boat rides, but Mitch still has hopes that will change. Orso is 7, I don’t think he’s going to change.

      • Nah, he’s not going to change! Okay, he just is a gentle giant! Is Charlie older?

      • Yeah Charlie just turned 9 on Halloween. Satan’s baby for sure. He is a real stinker.

      • He’s got that stink-eye that my Neko has! “Whyyyy are you bothering me?”

      • Yep that describes it perfectly. Sometimes we tell him to dial down the psycho dog.
