19-year-old Liam Beach was over the moon when he succeeded in capturing the near-perfect picture of his sixteen Dachshunds lined up in pairs on the stairs. Liam’s friend earlier had said to him that the feat would be impossible to achieve.
Liam accepted the challenge from his friend because he was pretty confident that his well-behaved dogs would be able to follow his instructions. Liam just placed the pooches on the steps of the stairs and told them to stay.
The dogs named Duke, Saffie, Kiki, Zac, Kizzy, Ziggy, Sammy, Bonnie, Buster, Ruby, Benjie, Wallie, Diamond, Dudley, Lottie, and Daisy obediently followed their owner’s order.
Once all the sixteen canines were at the desired spot, Liam used a tennis ball with squeaky sounds to keep the dogs attentive towards the camera. While the Dachshunds were focused on the camera, Liam took the picture and completed the task within eight minutes.
Liam’s friend had promised him a box of chocolates if he could pull off the task which she thought was impossible to achieve. Liam was asked to perform the feat on Friday morning, and he took just eight minutes in total to get the picture.
Liam, who feels he has a special love for Dachshunds, posted the picture online. The post was able to collect plenty of likes and comments. People loved the photo and were amazed by the discipline that the Dachshunds were showing in the picture.
Liam is an animal management graduate and in addition to the 16 Dachshunds, also owns a black Labrador. Liam says sometimes he gets negative comments about the number of canines that he owns, but he did not get any such comments on the picture where the pooches were made to sit on the stairs. Everyone seemed to like it.
