Last week, there was a dog theme on one of my photo sites, so I did a very informal photo shoot with Rocky. No flash, no big lights, no reflectors. Just my little dog on
my his favorite afghan.
Rocky’s pretty comfortable around the camera, but he looks a little wary here. Actually, that’s the look he gives right before he bolts. So I talked to him a while, then tried another shot.
I adopted Rocky from a small-dog shelter and he lost some teeth before I got him. That makes it a little harder to keep his tongue inside, so I have to remind him every now and then.
I almost picked this one, then Rocky rolled over and gave me a look that said, “OK, I give up. Just keep shooting, but I’m going to chill out.”
And that’s the one I picked.
Great weekend, everyone!
OMG … you certainly picked the correct one! Isn’t he just adorable. Beautifully captured in B&W Carole. Here’s a link to my favourite shot of Trixie, my smallish dog (she’s a little overweight at 8) but still quite bossy (when she’s awake) http://jpgmag.com/photos/2976564 BFN, Che
Thanks, Cheryl. 🙂 These were originally in color, but I didn’t like the yellow tones, so converted to b/w. So glad you provided the link because I don’t get over to JPG, as you know. Love that you called her The Trickster.
Cheryl’s comment made me laugh and had to look at the Trickster. Such soulful eyes one would never think she is bossy.
Looks can be deceiving. Rocky is pretty bossy too.
Such a little cutie! (And Cheryl’s Trickster, too.) Superb pooch photography here. Kudos to Ms. Pearl!
Such a wonderful shot. They are all lovely but the last one is so wonderful. He is adorable.
Did you ever see my two cats?
They were in a post I wrote last year. My boyfriend took the pictures. The first (the female) with an old and the second (the male) with his new camera.
No, I hadn’t seen them, Caroline. Growing up, I had a black cat just like yours!
Oh Caroline, How could anyone harm a helpless creature? Wonderful post and photos.
Thanks, Cheryl, It’s awful, isn’t it. The misery I saw in that place…
Keeps him from getting into trouble. 😉
Major cuteness overload. Rocky sure knows how to play to the camera. I can’t decide which is my favorite. I think I like the one where his tongue popped out. 😛
I don’t know how you get such great shots! Whenever I try to take photos of Reggie, 9 out of 10 are blurs, even though I tell him, “Stay. Stay. Stay. Sta—“
I can’t get Rocky to stay when we’re outside. He always wants to come up to me. Indoors he’s pretty mellow. But believe it or not, Rocky is around 13 years old!
Oh my! He is such a cutie! I love the one with his tongue out! 🙂
Yeah, I like that one too.
lol, that dog is not shy at all.
No, he is not shy. 🙂 Thanks.
Love the pictures of Rocky. Makes me miss our dog Sven. We had him 13 years and never replaced him because we are never home.
I understand completely. What kind of dog was Sven, Jeanne?
Great pictures. This is the kind of dog you have to rescue.
Thank you. I wanted Rocky, even though he had almost no hair. (The rescue people had to shave him because his coat got so matted when he was on the street.)
He is so so sweet.
He can be when he wants to. 🙂
