What a wonderful set of contrasts you've captured. That little dog of yours is soooo cute!

Looks like someone is having fun zooming around! My dad's rat terrier weighs in at almost 30 lbs..he's quite tall..between 18-20"...how big is your guy?

Nice action pictures of Cloud. I wish mom could get some of me and Banjo running. They always end up blurry. Maybe we should run in slow motion?

I like the red bird too.

Wags & wiggles,

Thanks guys!

Sarah, that's what I thought too, lol!

TT, Cloud is definitely a "little" giant - he stands about 12 inches at the shoulder and is 17 pounds of pure muscle.

Bijou, the running shot is a technique I just learned called panning - low shutter speed + pivoting at the waist while you shoot continuously at a moving subject. I'm really happy with how that photo turned out!

I just love your pictures. Cloud looks like he's having fun. Tucker would zoom with him, but Bella would have to stay on the porch. She's too pretty for that. :-)

Glad to see Cloud having fun! All dogs should be happy like this all the time. By the way, I just love this photo of dripping water.

I just love that first shot of your little dog!! I would call it "Life in Motion".
And, thanks for your advice about getting another poochie. I would definitely consider an older dog. I LOVE older animals of all kinds and would prefer to not go through puppydom at this moment in time. We had 3 large dogs until about a year ago. Our beloved Molly died of old age in her sleep. Lab/Golden retriever and Toby - a true mutt. We called him our little black dog and he was very pointy. He adored Molly and lasted almost 6 months after she died. He was perfectly healthy and then his heart gave out. I think he missed his Molly too much.
Now we have Annie and she is momma's girl and goes everywhere with me. It's a big decision because her little nose would be out of joint, but it's hard having just one dog in the family. Thanks.

Oh I love the shot of the cardinal. We don't have those here. I wish we did. Love all the other pictures too! That is a fast movin Cloud!
