Ziggy and the Photo Shoot

I decided I needed some new pictures of Ziggy for the adoption website and Ziggy's Fan Page, so at the last adoption event I took some photos of Ziggy wearing his "Adopt Me" bandana. The photo shoot went something like this.

Ziggy looks the wrong direction and ignores me for awhile.
I decide to wait him out.

Ziggy turns around but refuses to open his eyes.
More waiting on my part.

Ziggy sits down in order to better show off his stomach muscles.
I think about going home and doing some situps.

I move to the side and Ziggy tilts his head in a pose that would be adorable if he would stop closing his eyes.
I pretend to ignore him so he'll open his eyes again.

He gets up and walks away.
I use the opportunity to fix his bandana so people can actually read it. I wonder if that will encourage anyone to actually adopt him.

I back up and snap a quick photo before he has time to get his eyes completely closed.
I celebrate the possibility that I may finally have a useable picture.

Ziggy sits back down and closes his eyes again.
I wait.

He then lays down and continues to keep his eyes closed.
I contemplate taking a quick nap.

Ziggy then opens his eyes and I take another quick photo before he can move.
I decide the pictures are good enough and end the photo shoot.

Ziggy is rewarded for his excellent  mediocre less than enthusiastic performance with a trip to the Super Storm Drain.

I love that the storm drain is his reward. On a walk Baily love to carry her leash as a reward

I like how Ziggy has figured out that if he can't hear you and if he can't see you, he doesn't have to do what you want him to.

And I likes ALL pictures of Ziggy - always!

Ziggy is beyond adorable, even with his eyes closed! I can't believe there wasn't a line aroun the block to adopt him!

So cute! I like the one with the head tilt and his eyes are closed!

I think he wanted sunglasses so he could look extra cool.

Love, Cupcake

I love them all! He's such a cute little bugger. If I even look like I have a camera in my hand, everyone either stops what they are doing or turns their head. BOL

I love how he is the anti-model. And is that a 12-pack on him?
