But inevitably, one of my brothers (usually the one with the beard, but sometimes the other one, too) wants us to do something silly. And we always do.
Naturally, some of these silly pictures are the ones we cherish the most.
I recently took Molly Wolly Doodle to the groomer to get her spruced up and I thought it would be nice to have a picture of her. But because it is almost impossible to get her to sit still long enough to get the picture taken, I decided to recruit my dearly beloved to help me out.
He is normally quite reluctant to have his picture taken at all, much less to allow me to show it to anybody, but indeed he did this time.
And it started off OK...
but then, well, this happened…
And he did it all on his own. I think he loves this family he married into very much.
