I imagine it would have been akin to getting 5 toddlers to sit still for a picture!! They're adorable.

Very true, Sheryl. I've found the best idea for that type of picture taking is not to plan anything. Just take the camera out for the day and have fun, regardless of what happens. Sooner or later you'll get your chance, as long as you don't push your luck or get your hopes up. Just let it all unfold naturally.

David, they are so precious!!! That is a great picture, since you say that you have 5 1/2 dogs I take it that these are the other 5 and Greta would be the half?
Thanks for finding it and posting it for us.

Oh, how cute! I think I like the light colored one the best.

Yes, just my warped humour, which is why I fit in so well here.

I am torn between Flisa and Yllet, and of course Greta.

David, how are they with each other? Is there a dominance with Grandmother to the rest?

How adorable Greta and the rest of the family are! I love that group photo - they are all even looking the in same direction. I know it probably wasn't easy and took several attempts to gain that final product, but you rarely see a family of humans that cooperative so to see it so perfectly depicted with a "family" of pups (even if it was just chance)is brilliant :D

Oh yes, there is indeed an heirarchy, much in the way most of the animal world behaves. And family is family. Borka, Flisa, and Greta know they are blood and are a very tight bond. Borka (Grandma) shares roost-ruling duties with Yllet (the Queen), who is the overall eldest.

Flisa (mama) and Enya (the silver one) will occasionally fight as they are still young, the same age and not related, so they are jockeying for rank over one another.

Grim, the only male, is akin to the King's fool. He is part of the family but has no particular rank as he is neither a submissive nor a dominant. He just goes his own way and somehow manages to live happily amongst a pack of females. :D Grim is also my best friend and constant shadow, even though I love them all.

Confused yet?
