September 4th - Puddles



This is Puddles. I'm pet sitting for a friend, and it was really, really hard to get a still shot of this dog. In the background, you can see the blur that is Hudson, a Golden Retriever. Puddles was just as excited, and I had a hard time getting her to sit! She's a sweet dog, and I've known her a long time. It's so sad that she has cancer and most likely isn't going to make it through the rest of the year. :( Couldn't tell from how happy she looks here, though, huh?! :)

Oh, yeah. Sorry about my knee in the foreground, too. From the blur in the background, I think you understand why I wasn't sitting on the ground trying to get this shot! ;)

the wide angle makes his snout takes up a lot of space. Makes for a really fun image. Nice doggie!

It's handy that your phone cam has such a wide angle. Looks like Puddles is thinking about licking that camera! With those two around, I wouldn't be sitting on the floor either!

A cute portrait and it sounds like it was hard work to get. Which makes the end result even more satisfying. Well done.

I like the "real life" feel to the shot. I works here.
Your story about Puddle is heartbreaking, please give her a hug for me....

Well done for even trying to take the shot. It's sad to hear about Puddle's illness but it's good to know that for now at least she's happy.
