I needed a special photo for a mission so we left the girls harrness on and put their leads on and luke was behind the chair holding on ,I also noted that Daisy has Rosies collar on and vice versa and clearly visble if you zoom in are my address and phone number and that of my vets ,again it took 80 shots to get poss 4 or 6 but good fun.

Oh what a beautiful kids you have Brian, they look so well behaved and respectable too. Lovely photo...you have us curious about your mission. THe way they are all sitting at attention they do look like they're on a mission, something serious.

What a lovely photo of your girls! How about making it into a poster?

I have a poster on my wall of 6 golden retriever pups that I have had for many years.

Great photo Brian, how on earth did you get them all to sit in one place for you and pose at the same time?

First I used a prime 35 mm lens so I could get reasonably close to get them all and fit them in ,then I left their harness on and pulled the armchair forward and had Luke go behind the chair ,then I put their short leads on and passed them to Luke who kept tight hold and ducked behind the chair out of sight .So I now had them all on the chair unable to jump off as their lead fixed to their harness was holding them all back and lastly in my left hand I had a container of the small fish4dogs treats which I fed them to hold their attention together with a squeaky rubber chicken which I managed to squeak to get their eyes looking slightly away from the camera and I also used a Nikon SB900 speedlight with the camera .:)

That is just perfect-beautiful shot and no hint of restraints :) although that harness is a teeny bit askew. Your pics are wonderful and the Four look terrific.
