Getting the family together for a photo is difficult enough.

Especially when kids are involved.

Add dogs into the mix, and things can get awkward:

#5. You brought me to a meadow, and you want me to stay still?!

“My sister and her fiance took their dog with them for engagement pictures.”

#4. Anybody seen the dog?

“My husband and I wanted to take a Christmas family photo with our dog Rylee, but he kept wandering off.

When we got home, our photographer called us and said, ‘I found where Rylee was.'”

#3. It’s all fun and games until somebody loses a face…

“We were taking our family Christmas photo, and let’s just say the dogs weren’t in a Holly-Jolly mood.

This photo was the worst of the batch, but now it’s a conversation starter.

We keep it right by the entrance of our home here in St. Louis.”

#2. Not Interested

“My fiancé and I decided to take our dog to our annual Christmas photo shoot.

After a couple pictures with the three of us, we wanted a picture of just the two of us.

Our dog wasn’t happy being left out, so he let the photographer know it!”

#1. Jealous?

“This is the 2006 Christmas Card photo that we sent out, with our 6-year-old English Bulldog, Joan.”
