This picture isn't really a picture. Well, technically, it's 3 different pictures that I used to create one. Rosie, the dog on the left and Ginger the dog on the right are my dogs. I love them both very much, but they definitely do not love or even remotely like one another.
Rosie was a feral puppy that literally adopted us and she just does not play very well with others. Ginger was a foster dog that actually got along well with Rosie, until the day my husband and I decided to adopt her and the ink wasn't even dry on the paper before Rosie let us know exactly what she thought of our idea.
I love both dogs and with time have come up with a schedule, gates, crates and enough dog couches to keep everyone happy. Because Rosie was feral she does have a few issues, but she truly loves all people and is extremely friendly. Rosie's crate is big enough for a Great Dane and she only weighs 50 pounds. The crate is set up in our den and Rosie eats in it.
At night when we're watching TV, I rotate her and Ginger out so each of them get some serious couch time. Ginger drags her front paw on the gate to get my attention when she wants to be on the other side of the gate and then I just switch her out with Rosie. It's really amazing how both dogs let me know what they want and where they want to be in the house. No one gets left out and they both get equal attention.
I really enjoy playing around with Photoshop and do so often. The books I have to actually learn it terrify me so I just take my time and experiment with different pictures, which is how this picture came to be. I extracted each dog from a different photo and then noticed how both of them were looking exactly the same way, I resized them (Ginger is actually 93 pounds) and then found a picture of some trees. Basically, I just blended them all together. My goal is to make it look like a real picture, not something pasted together.
I love photography and using Photoshop has really helped me discover an artistic side that I never really knew that I had.
Wow! You did a great job on that! I wish I had those skills. Cute dogs.
Nice picture, however, the dog on the right does not have a body. His body ends where the other dogs body starts.
Cropping above the legs would probably look more realistic.
Other then that, the picture is great. :-)
CaroleeRose, the pic is great, but I'm even more impressed with your dedication to Rosie & Ginger. It can be a huge challenge to have/love, a less than perfect pet. Kudos to you for hanging in there and making it work. I hope many babes have the opportunity to come in contact with a true animal lover such as yourself. This world needs more people like you. Blessings >^.^<
Bless you with all your work and love for these two doggies. Talk to a dog handler, or get a book on dog issues. I had two cats who did not get along, and needed to live on separate floors. Our very social Elsa decided to slowly come to the first floor when our son would visit. Ditto other company too. A year and a half they are becoming friends. Don't give up, just take care to watch them.

My son, Vernon, has been having fun with Photoshop.
In the first picture, Vernon photoshopped his head onto Superman's body. You have to admit, he looks good.
Vernon has photoshopped his head onto the Hulk's body in the second photo. I think his expression is spot on.
This is so great, and very funny. I, personally just love this sort of thing. He looks like the Action Figure. What fun!
I love it! (07/08/2010)
