Posing your puppy for a Christmas picture - Rachel Teodoro

Posing your puppy for a Christmas picture

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Walmart. All opinions are 100% mine.

Our three year old Golden Retiever Sophie is a part of our family.

It didn't even cross my mind that we wouldn't include her in our impromptu trip to the park to try to take photos for our Christmas card.

My husband set up the tripod and got the camera ready while we all tried to pose and hold his spot.

Unfortunately, Sophie didn't get the memo that you are supposed to turn towards the camera, smile and look your best.

We ended up with these pictures of Sophie.

She's looking at the camera, but we can't get her to sit.

Here she is sitting, but the kids are all laughing because she isn't turned toward the camera.

Our attempt to just let Sophie chase squirrels in the park, left her to actually photo bomb us at the last second.

Trying to get a family picture for our Christmas card with her in it, just wasn't working.

If only I had remembered that she will do anything for a Beggin' Strips® treat.

Sophie is partial to the bacon and peanut butter flavored kind.

I just take the bag out and she immediately sits and is ready to do anything I ask of her!

Behind the camera, this is what I am holding to get Sophie to sit in position for Christmas picture attempt 2.

I ended up getting this very dignified looking picture of her by the Christmas tree. 

Man, why didn't I think of bringing the Beggin" strips® along to the park when we were trying to get a family picture?

Live and learn.

Next year, the five of us and the dog will be gracing the family Christmas photo card.

Of course, I'm stopping at WalMart first so that I can have Purina® Beggin' Strips ® in my back pocket!

While I was at WalMart picking up this package of Purina® Beggin' Strips® I picked up a few extra bags to add to Sophie's stocking.  Does your dog have a stocking?  What do you include?

Do you have any good tips or tricks on getting your whole family {it goes without saying that your dog is part of your family!} included in a family picture?
