For many of us, our pets are a huge part of our lives, and we love
photographing them right along with everyone else in the family.
Today's picture features one of those cherished "family" portraits.
Here is photographer Ron Trees to tell us about it:
"Now you tell me, have you ever seen a more pitiful look on a

online gallery where you'll find many of the photographs he has
taken over the years.
This last weekend, my oldest daughter and son-in-law came to visit
us bringing their dog, Riley, along with them. Our dogs are somewhat
used to getting "dressed up", as it does happen from time to time,
but for poor Riley, this was possibly his first time ever.
He was enjoying life as he knew it when he was snatched up by my
middle daughter and taken away. No one even noticed that he was
gone, but when he returned, this is what we saw. He pretty much
sat there, not moving a muscle and you can see that he really
not happy with the situation at all. He was pretty excited when
was all removed. Just wait until mom and dad find out what was
just before leaving to go back home!
Our pets truly become part of our home. They are part of everything
that we do a lot of the time. I hope that they enjoy their time with
us as much as we do theirs. I am sure that in this case, Riley was
wondering what was wrong with his humans as they were acting pretty
silly. I sure hope that I do not need a model release for this one,
am sure that he will not sign one.
We get lots of excellent photos here at TodaysPhoto.org that I so
thoroughly enjoy!! My goal here is to bring a smile to your face
Actually, I think it is Riley that has probably already done

That is too funny, Ron! Itís probably a good thing your pets donít
have opposable thumbs or you might wake up from a sound sleep to
find yourself wearing a bunny suit! Thanks for the chuckle.

We know all about that dressing up of the pets. To this day Amy
still puts on some weird looking outfits on her dog
Maya and she
always did on
I'm betting that Sage is up in heaven laughing at how funny Maya
looks and thinking "Oh wow, better Maya than me". We do miss Sage
and all those outfits and I'm sure he is happy to know that he
wasn't the only one to have to look goofy at times.
