School Pictures

The tall guy told me when he was in school, a guy would come around once a year and take his picture and then his mom would have to decide how many of them she wanted to buy. He said she almost always bought one big one and one sheet with 9 pictures on it. I know, I just about fell asleep when he told me the story too.

Anyway, as you can see above, the tall guy tends to take a LOT of pictures at one time. The ones above were taken in about 3 minutes. I guess it's a good thing my mom doesn't have to buy my pictures or she would have to get 3 jobs!

I also think it's a good thing that the tall guy isn't a school photographer because then instead of 9 pictures you would have a sheet with 40 pictures on it, each one about the size of a postage stamp. I guess each one would come with its own magnifying glass!


  1. My mom remembers those picture's sessions too!
    TG took lots of pictures of you in just 3 minutes and I have to say all of them are pawesome!
    I'd buy 3 sets of them!
    Kisses and hugs

  2. Hi Jack... Ma has 4 grandpeeps. And she has so many pictures of them from pre-pre to almost-college from pix like yours that she doesn't know what to do with them. I totally get it. Except several of yours are pawesome hehehehe!
    Happy Monday xoxoxo

  3. Hey Jack - Shiloh'n Shasta here. Yep, r mom rememberz thoze daze tu altho she sez it wuz a LONG time ago. But she duz the same thing with us - a lot of pikchurz that r not that diff'rent. There r sum good 1'z up there of u. Mom sez she likez thoze kind the best cuz they look the most real. Not shure what she meanz by that - ain't they all real?

  4. Oh yes!

    Mom rekhalls THOSE days too!


  5. News Flash, Jack: They still sell those kind of pictures in school today! And, guess what, huh? You can buy them as stickers! How cool is that?


  6. Where do I purchase these hilarious school mugshots!
    I am a victim of the parent pupparazzi too, its a dreadful job.

  7. That sure is a ton of pictures of your labraface. What is with these humans always with the picture taking. As if they will forget what we look like? Hey! I'm right here!

    I think you need to make sure that everybody TallGuy knows has a Jack photo in their wallet. Or maybe you could sell them to a wallet company as the default photo.


  8. Jack,

    How do you puts up with him? ;)

    Woofs and Licks,

    PeeS Grreat pictures!

  9. OMG!!! I hated Picture Day at school.
    One year my class didn't have their pictures made until after lunch...we had cherry popsicles for lunch!
    Need I say more?

  10. Morning would like to order 100 copies of the first picture on the last row!!! FYI: the check is in the mail.

    TG great job on the pictures. I haven't thought about school pictures in years.

    Madi and Mom

  11. You get more pictures taken then all the kids in a school combined on picture day get :)

    Your TG must either have to delete his camera cards really often or have a lot of them!

  12. Aren't 'us' pooches just plain adorable and the perfect posers! Yep, my daddies are always snappin' pics day in and day out!

  13. Nowadays, you have to pay for the photos before you even take them! No more deciding how many you want after you've seen how they turned out--you just have to go by faith that they'll never be flattering of anyone.

  14. I think I missed picture day at the school I went to. Now Beth says I have to be home schooled and all I get are the pictures she takes. I like yours. The Tall Guy made it look just like the ones Beth said she remembers. If I had some I would trade with you and write something REALLY cool on the back of it!

  15. Same with me. Some people would try to talk the photographer into giving them the ones they didn't buy instead of throwing photos of their little kids in the trash..NOT my mother of course!
    Jack, I like all of your photos. I wouldn't be able to decide.

  16. Jack, BTW, you have two kinds of photos and they sort of alternate.
    Pant and don't pant.

  17. BOL...why you wanna makes me laugh so freaking hard....I gotta go pe now.


  18. OOH!! The many faces of Jack!! M remembers school picture days too. It wasn't her favorite day... We like yours!
    Ernie, Sasha, Chica

  19. Dashing! You're just dashing my friend :)
    Hope mom doesn't try that with me...I might have to snaggle more of her slippers if I see her setting up the multiple sheet of a million pix! :)

    Hugs and snaggle-tooth kisses,
    Sierra Rose

  20. Jack.. great school pictures :) We have school pictures everywhere here.... it is hard to choose just one...

  21. Have TG talk to my TG (tall gal to you). She's just as bad, but every now and then, when I look like a movie star, I forgive her.

  22. Mom says that no matter how hard her mom tried the pictures were always the worst. Have you ever seen the Ellen Show where she shows old school pictures. It ought to be illegal to look that bad for history!
