When it comes to taking a dog picture, knowing how to hold your dog to avoid moving is the key to have an awesome picture. It is easy if you just own one or two dogs, but if you have 16 dogs or even more, we are sure that you cannot get a perfect photo of them. However, a 19-year-old teenager managed to get all of his 16 dachshunds posing neatly lined up in pairs. It’s unbelievable!
On Friday, Liam Beach, an animal management graduate who lives in Cardiff, Wales tried to set up and capture the adorable shot of his well-behaved pooches in eight minutes. He did it to prove his friend wrong and win the bet after he said that it was impossible to get them to line up and Liam wouldn’t be able to capture such a shot.
Liam told the media: “My friend Catherine challenged me to try to get all of my lot sat on the stairs for a photo. She said, “I bet you can’t pull it off,” so I thought “challenge accepted”. She also promised me a box of chocolates if I managed it. She set me that task on Friday morning and 10 minutes later, I had the photo. It took me eight minutes in total. I timed myself.”
The names of the furballs are Saffie, Daisy, Dudley, Wallie, Diamond, Ruby, Benjie, Buster, Bonnie, Ziggy, Sammy, Kizzy, Kiki, Zac, Duke, and Lottie. They were placed on the stairs by their owner and told to ‘stay’. Liam used a tennis ball to lure his dogs to the stairs and have their attention focused on the camera.
As you can see in the picture, eight duos of sausage doggies” are sitting on steps, posing as if they are professional models and are in a famous magazine.
After getting the picture, Liam posted it on social media. The picture has gone viral and gotten many surprised reactions from people.
“It’s amazing the amount of positive reactions I’ve had because sometimes people are judge-y about the amount of dogs I have. But I haven’t had any negative reactions to the picture at all and I’m amazed by how many people love it. It is really lovely to see.”
If you love this picture and Liam’s dachshunds, let’s share it with your friends and family and don’t forget to let us know your thoughts in comments.
