Taking their family portrait!
Our six dogs are such a beautiful family that it’s hard to imagine that we once had eleven dogs; actually more than that.
But our six still aren’t as well behaved as the eleven dogs in The Dodo article.
Whole Pack Of Dogs Sits Perfectly Still For Their Family Portrait
Their foster mom is truly a dog whisperer.

Anyone who has ever tried to convince even one dog to sit still for a photo knows just how difficult it can be — but one woman has managed to do the impossible with — wait for it — 11 dogs.
“Top from left: Mia, Pancake, Paxton,” Lentz said. “Bottom from left: Benji, Gizmo, Alex, Penny, Donny, Lula, Monroe and Rudy.”
Lentz added that seven of the depicted dogs are fosters waiting for homes, while “Gizmo, Donny, Monroe and Rudy are mine,” she said.
Even more remarkable, perhaps, is the fact that that perfect portrait is far from a one-time fluke.
“I have tons of these photos,” Lentz said.
Sometimes, Lentz even manages to join the pack for that perfect shot.
But how does she get such perfect family portraits — something that’s hard enough even for humans?
Lentz’s secret seems to have to do with the particular relationships she forms with the dogs. One can almost see the bond reflected in the way the dogs look at her as she’s snapping the photos.
“I literally just put them on the couch one by one and they situate themselves!” Lentz said. “I don’t use food [or] treats or anything. I just tell them to look at me.”
