Here is a dog in a hat. Mort doesn’t mind getting dressed up for photos like these. In fact when I bring out the props, and a bag of treats, he is actually trying to put his self into the props because he knows it will get him attention and food (two of his favorite things). He wasn’t always this way, it is definitely something he had to learn. But now that he understand what I want, and what gets him tidbits of food, it’s much easier to take photos with props.
