The Making of Batsam Begins

We thought it would be fun to show you some behind the scenes pictures from our making of the April 1 post today. It's all a lot of fun, but every so often I get the impression that Sam's doubting our sanity (e.g. picture #4). 

#7 is a much older picture (unposed, when Sam was just a 3 month pup) that was the inspiration for Batsam. He discovered that he can see out the windows above our front door from that vantage point at the top of the stairs.

    If I could have a dog, I would look for Sam's double. He seems like a perfect gentleman.

    Love this. While Sam doesn't have to put any effort into being adorable, I see that his family must pitch in to create those perfect photos. Well done.

    I see Angie's personality coming through in these :)
    I see what you mean about your dog questioning your sanity....that look! Lol!

  • Firecracker replied 2 years ago

    I love #4: "Yeah, I see you there, Angie, but what's he doing back there??"
    Pictures of Sam are so adorable.
    Hey, we should have a meetup with Sam.

  • Maneera replied 2 years ago

    Angie in the background..tryin to get Batsam's attention and *pose* just right is too hilarious. I'm sure this was loads and loads of fun!

    I <3 Batsam!

    Such cuteness should be illegal! He is absolutely adorable!

  • Ruby Tuesday replied 2 years ago

    Oh wow, I love these images, so much fun to see you coaxing Sam to pose.

  • Louise replied 2 years ago

    Dinner dinner dinner dinner BatSam! Love his doubting your sanity shot! Looks like he's saying 'seriously Dad is this for real'

  • Beth Ann replied 2 years ago

    Such fun!  He obviously is a curious little guy, and seems very happy keeping watch over the world from the top of the stairs!

  • skylurker replied 2 years ago

    Hahaha, not sure what's most funny : Sam's bewildered eyes or Angie dancing around him with treats.
    Thanks for sharing.

  • marianna replied 2 years ago

    I just love him! <3

    Wil wants to be able to run across the back of the lounge to surveil as well... (pity he's a goofy 35kg lab lol!)

  • Brooklyn replied 2 years ago

    These photos are fantastic.  So adorable.

  • chirico (Chiara) replied 2 years ago

    Lovely pics! I like Angie in the background trying to get Sam's attention...

  • CocoLion replied 2 years ago

    You may joke and think it's all really cute but in his world, guarding you and your house from the stair top is really important!!!

  • Summer replied 2 years ago

    Thank you for making my day with these pictures, Greg.  Sam is so adorable, and such a little character.  Picture 6 is the cutest thing I have seen in a long time.

  • Dar replied 2 years ago

    Well how cute is this! I especially love the look on his face in photo #4. Sweet!

  • Debora replied 2 years ago

    This is so adorable! If I ever get a dog it will have to be a yorkie. :) You really should frame photo #6. Beautiful!

  • Janet replied 2 years ago

    Too cute!

  • Greg replied 2 years ago

    Thank you for all the kind words about little Sam.

    And Cocolion, I take Sam's guard duties extremely seriously. So his alertness is important in our world too. But his outfit is a lot of fun. :-)

  • goldenpig replied 2 years ago

    Oh my goodness. Dying from the cuteness. Both Sam, and Angie trying to make him smile!

  • Joy replied 2 years ago

    So much personality.  Sam is a star for sure.  Thank you for sharing these.  I really love 4 and Sam's expression with Angie in the background.

  • shevia replied 2 years ago

    I love how Sam breaks the 4th wall during shooting. He is very sophisticated!

  • Helen11 replied 2 years ago

    Thanks for the behind the scenes! So much fun. #6 is my favourite, too.

  • replied 2 years ago

    So sweet! Are you sure Sam doesn't don his BatSam cape at night while everyone's sleeping? Nothing beats protecting the homestead with a little extra jolt of superpower.

  • Barbara Diane replied 2 years ago

    So sweet! Thanks for sharing. Sam posts always bring a smile to my face.

  • cheryl replied 2 years ago
