Watching out for Santa!

By tonymarq
Hi everyone and hope all are well on EPZ! been very busy so sorry for not being around as finally have some time. We started decorating for Christmas this weekend and had to get some pic's of my two buds who i have been missing for the past two busy weeks and wanted members opinions for my Christmas card as this is one of a few. These two were on the steps while Bridget trimmed the tree and there excitement was so perfect especially our son Ty as he can't wait till Santa comes to Mahopac N.Y. and Tyson our pup was along for the ride on the excitement express as he can't wait to meet Ruldolf the reindeer,lol!will be back as we are going to the mall to visit Santa and any special requests for St. Nick please email to me as i will pass them along!Will be catching up with everyone in the next couple of days!

stay well

A well framed very nice Christmas shot.

I think Ruldolf won't want to meet the dog as he looks a little to hungry to meet

Hi Tony,great to hear from you.I like Ty's tartan Trews.He looks great and all ready for christmas with the red and his best friend on the stairs with him,the way he is holding those bars i don't think you've much chance of holding him back if he spots Santa....At first i just saw Tyson's expression in the thumbnail and thought oh no he's jailed them,but then i opened up and found it was all fine after all.I love happy endings.
Hi to my buddies across the puddle,take care and don't work too hard.Have a great time.

Hi Tony,
Welcome back.
I think this would make a beautiful Xmas card.
The clarity is amazing, the colours perfect, & the smile on Ty's face is just so adorable, & Tyson looks kinda cute as well.
It's wonderful.

Hey Tony, the combination of expressions here is priceless. Haven't seen the other shots, but I'd use this one for cards any day!

Tyson definitely looks like the straight-dog in this comedy duo....
