As talented as Poodles are, both of these positions are anatomically impossible for dogs to assume.
These are photos for a clever 2010 Yoga Dogs calendar using popular dog breeds and computer wizardry, created by Dan and Alejandra Borris, a couple from Texas. The dogs get as close as dogs can to the yoga positions and Photoshop does the rest. Dan explains:
“There is no forcing the animal to do anything. We will get the dog in a general position but each dog that I photograph is well looked after.” Relying on his wife Alejandra's skills with man's best friend, Dan gets her to hold and coax the dogs into certain positions.
“Alejandra is a former yoga teacher and works with animals for a living,” says Dan. “She works with the dogs while I am setting up lights and she gets them as close as she can to the poses.
Alejandra is photoshopped out of the pictures and more touches are added.
