Many of you know that Cody hates to have his photo taken. I have so many photos of the side or back of his head, such as this one. Or, his backside running out of the picture. Come on Cody, pleeease look at me. :no2: Nope mama, won't do it.




So, he couldn't run and hide from the camera, I put him up on the bed. Then, I bribed him with his favorite cookie, a Carob Chip Chomper. He's holding it in his mouth. To get the "somewhat" happy/excited look, I told him "Daddy's home!"

In retrospect, I took him hostage, distracted him, and lied to him! :w00t: I'm such an awful mommy!



Okay, mommy, can I go eat my cookie now?!

I completely understand!!! You did get that gorgeous pic of him with the cookie in his mouth. Hey, I take between 60 to 90 pics to get one good one. My two love to not look at the camera......usually I hold one of their toys or stuffed animals over my head and try to get a shot and they will look....I hate picture taking time but I try really hard to get pics for all of you and of course, I love getting a good pic for myself~~~

Oh no, Suzi, you're a wonderful mommy! It's so funny to see little Cody looking insulted into the other direction, :HistericalSmiley:!
The second shot of him is great! You got him to look in the camera with only one cookie! Compliment, Lol!

:smrofl::smrofl::smrofl::smrofl: You and Cody just made my day!:HistericalSmiley:What great pictures! I love the way he turned his head in the first picture and then was just holding the cookie in his little mouth. I'm proud of him. I DO hope you let him eat his cookie.:blush: Thank you for sharing these.

There he is! I was beginning to think there was no Cody! :LOL: He looks precious sitting there JUST for YOU (and the cookie).
My motto regarding pic taking "bribery is the best policy". :)

When it comes to getting pictures of our pups we just have to do what we have to do. I use the treats and although I always feel bad about the 'Daddy's home" lie :brownbag:....... I use it anyway. Works every time. :thumbsup:
Cute pictures!! :wub:

There is Cody boy <3 it is a pity that he doesn't like to have his pictures taken because he is such a HANDSOME malt!!! I love all the pictures that you took of him, including these two; makes it hard to believe that he doesn't like to have for his pictures to be taken because he looks THAT SO VERY CUTE when he isn't liking it!!!

haha mama, I use that trick very often with Crystal :p she doesn't mind the camera, but I just bring the treat out in order to get the happiest expression of hers.
