A Rocky photo shoot

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

    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.

    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. πŸ˜›

    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!

    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.

  8. Great pictures. This is the kind of dog you have to rescue.

    He is so so sweet.
