Awwwww pamela, she hasn't signed a press release... 'no comment, no pictures...." LoL.

What about a cookie? Can you make her sit and focus on a cookie and then take the picture? You'll have to hold the picture in one hand. Maybe get a really good cookie, something she doesnt get every day... chicken maybe?

A lot of dogs will not look at a camera (especially a large pro camera with a lens on it). The lens looks like a big scary eye and they don't really like it. Rather than trying to get her to look directly into the camera, try to get her to look just above the camera or just over your shoulder. Get your shot all set up and then either squeak a toy or throw a toy back over your shoulder. That will usually get them to look - especially throwing something.

lol, a couple of mine refuse to look at the cam when Im taking pics. A real shame when you are looking for that lovely headshot. I usually do the sqeeky toy thing, most of the times I get the shot I want now

This is good advice. Although Taffy will look directly at the lens, few animals will. When we took jester's mom's Doberman's pics she threw keys and we got some great shots.
