Behind The Scenes


A typical day of work always involves the Scotties.

Whether they are laying in the room near where I am working or right at my feet, they are a constant part of my work day.

Anyone who sells online knows that the lighting and staging is an integral part of making your photos just so. There is a certain part of the day that the light is good in certain parts of the house. This morning it is in the dining room.


Duhgall was very curious as I took photos. He climbed up on the stool and was nosing around this little vignette.

“Hey Duhgall, would you like a treat?”



“Well, my little boy, you have to jump and get it and I will take a photo of you!”


Duhgall gives it much thought.

Fiona says to him that if he doesn’t get it, she will.


With that bee in his bonnet, he decides to go for it. “Step aside, Fiona, I am the boss dog today!”


Yes, little Fiona did get a treat, too. How could I give some to one and not the other?

Ok, they are content and laying down now so I can get back to work.

Time to edit the photos….and look what was left behind…….


…..yup…..a tasty morsel.


Back to a second shoot….

Better now.

Where are the dogs? One is in a chair and the other is at my feet while I edit my photos. They are the perfect team to have around to help…and they don’t ask for a paycheck either!

Hi Becky! It took me a while to find a way to leave a comment on this post... not sure why. Your dogs are so very adorable! Mine are laying here near me.. waiting patiently for breakfast, which I am running late on, having blogged too long. Have a great weekend!

Hi Becky!
What great little helpers you have.
My kitties always keep me company in my sewing room and they love to grab the threads and ribbon!

What would we do without them.

I am chuckling as I read this tonight as we are keeping Murphy overnight and he is very busy taunting Jackson! They have a love/hate relationship.

Scotties have it hard, there are so many things that must be checked on. Pippi is wedged into the chair with me as I write

Becky~ I sure hope you got that
last piece of treat off that two
tier snack tray before you have
two legged guess over.LOL. Doogs
and Finoa are sooo cute.Always!!!
In 1966 I ironed clothes for my
sister's friend to earn money to
be able to buy my Mom one of those
at Fed Mart in Houston,TX. I was
16yr.old. Funny huh. O.K. that's my 2 cents.":O)
