While researching for the trip to Leavenworth I found a few old tyme photo shops. But when in a Bavarian village, why not get a Bavarian old tyme photo taken? While setting up the appointment I double checked with the shopkeeper that dogs were allowed in to the studio. Although I had read on their website that they were, I always like to check prior to bringing in Boomer just in case things have changed.
The shopkeeper and I picked out a suitable Bavarian outfit for me. Boomer would be partaking in the fun as well, wearing a bright red tie with a floral motif. I walked Boomer over to the set and I informed the photographer that Boomer was excellent at sitting for photos. As luck would have it I should have kept my big mouth shut. His behavior went from agreeable to bratty in a matter of seconds. He refused to look at the camera, even turned around and sat with his back to the camera. Trying to move a 70 lb lump of brat while attempting to not knock over the Bavarian mug props that were just at the right level of Boomer’s tail was difficult.
We were able to get a few good shots, even one that will be suitable for our Christmas card. Last year we used our old western photo we got in Keystone South Dakota as our Christmas card and it was a huge hit! Apparently this was going to become a tradition for Boomer and I, to use old tyme photos for our Christmas cards.
We were finally able to get a good photo with Boomer’s floppy ears looking so cute. Gotta love this dog!All images courtesy of Studio 1890
