He tried all kind of ways to be in a picture. None of them worked. At Halloween, he found some clothes to slide into and then he tried to creep in the middle of where the family was posing. Christmas found him lying right in the way trying to wrap garland around himself. Out he went! "What do I have to do?", he wondered. He felt like he was part of the family and should be included in family pictures. He kept trying and wouldn't give up. Then he had the chance he was looking for.
The family was in the back yard for a picnic. They lived out in the country, so many creatures who lived in the woods would wander by. Among them was a pair of raccoons. They were so cute that someone decided to take a picture of them. While they ran in the house to get the camera, Merle quickly grabbed something too. Just before the camera clicked, Merle jumped into place!
