***
1 precious little boy

2 precious little boy outfits
+
2 very excited puppies
+
1 Mommy with very high hopes
+
1 Supportive Daddy
+
1 bag of puppy treats
+
1 VERY squeaky hamburger puppy toy

Then...
1 precious little boy
+
2 very nervous/hyper puppies
+
Way too many puppy treats
+
2 bags of Backyardagains fruit snacks
+
1 bowl of water
+
5 puppy pee pee accidents (yes, FIVE!)
+
1 very exhausted and embarrassed Mommy
+
1 very exhausted and embarrassed Daddy
+
1 very patient photographer
+
1 outfit change
+
200 bubbles

1 very wasted evening
...made for a miserable photo shoot with the puppies and Q!

Needless to say, we left with...
1 free 8x10 (seriously, did we have to even take the free one!?)
+
2 sleepy puppies
+
1 tired little boy
+
1 tired and disappointed Mommy
+
1 tired and hungry Daddy
+
a vow to NEVER try this again!!!

Oh well...you live and learn...maybe I'll try my own photo shoot in the other cute oufit that he wore! We're crossing our fingers for better luck at our family photo shoot in a few weeks...WITH NO PUPPIES!!!!!

Ohhhh noooo!!!! LOL! So sad, but so funny--how you put it! And FIVE puppy pee pee accidents? Your puppies are certainly very house-broken, so I would have never imagined! Oh dear. Well at least in the pic you got, Kia and Quinn both look happy!!

so you know that last comment was me, right? I hate it when I don't realize until AFTER I type my comment on my phone that it thinks I'm MB. So frustrating, because I can't copy and paste (still can't believe Apple hasn't added this capability) what I already typed, and post it under my login. And I didn't want to re-type it all. So instead, I spent even more time typing this rant. I'm real bright. Well, I guess we live and learn (back to the photo shoot). I'll try to learn from your living in this case. I will say that Ike pooped a big, wet, stinky, greyhound poop in the reception area at the vet once, and I was so embarrassed. :-/.

Sounds like you guys had a lot going on! The picture that you did get turned out cute...you will always remeber the story behind it!

OH my goodness that definitely sounds like a day that needs no repeat performance! At least today is a new day (that does not include a photo shoot)! :)
