I thought it was a brilliant idea. Put a cute jingle bell collar on Beau and get him in the Christmas picture with Jacob. Seventy pictures later, I have one decent photo of him actually looking at the camera at the same time as Jacob. The dog just is not made to sit still, especially when there are cars, people and other dogs in the neighborhood to distract him.
Jacob thought the experience was hilarious, and so half of the pictures are of him laughing at Beau. Another ten photos have me laughing so hard that they are out of focus. One even has my finger pointing at Beau to sit. Next year, if I even suggest that we get Cocoa and Calico in the shot, too... just show me the photo above.
On the bright side, I thought the ones of Jacob alone were adorable.
