  3. That last shot your doggy peaking through the grass is adorable.

    I share my name with one of your pets. (grin)

  5. Frtiz, My sister's doggy

    I babysat Fritz when he was a puppy. He hated my camera. This isn't a great quality shot, but he is adorable.

    We play soccer together. He is now just over a year old.

    Shelties are great! This is my friend's dog, Holly (she's part Sheltie):

    She loves her ball, it's what she lives for - people throwing the ball for her:

    And this is my dog, Harry.

    ... and this is how he likes to spend his time :biggrin:

    Meow!

    What?! No cats? I'm going to have to remedy that... :biggrin:
    (Great lookin' dogs btw! :thumbup: I especially liked the before and after haircut shots!)

    All of these were taken with the Canon FD 50mm f/1.4 (first two were with the older SSC breech version; I'm now using the "new-FD" mount version.)

    One of my cats, Turbo, by night. Taken with the Canon wide-open; seems like the FD was not the only focusing lens that was wide open :rofl:

    My Dog Milo.

    First shot with 50mm OM lens. Too bad that the edges go soft on F/1.8.
    Tried on a slightly smaller apaerture after this picture, but the damn dog wouldn't lay down :p
    Still, I love the little monster

    My dogs generally take me for a walk everyday if I'm good. We have 28 acres to walk around in so Molly does not have to run into anything.

    Gracey, my Siberian and Molly, a blind field Irish Setter. Taken with A33 and the pretty sharp now that I know how to set it Tamron 18-250.

    p433573601-5.

    p87915563-5.

    p416740053-5.

    Molly is too cute for words! Is Gracey her guide dog? ;)

    Gracey has a little bell on her collar that Molly can hear. They stay a few feet apart when we walk, but Molly can tell where to go by hearing Gracey so I guess you can say she guides Molly. I used to walk them both on a leash, but since I have been training Gracey with a shock/obedience collar, Gracey does not run off anymore and they can both run free in the fields behind my house. It's great fun letting Molly and Gracey run wide open in the huge field behind my house without having to worry about Molly running into something or Gracey running off. Siberians are the worst dog for running off there is and I had to stop that.

    My favorite image of them.

    Cats? No problem! :wink:

    This is Toby. He "adopted"my parents, and lets them feed him and house him when it suits him (He actually lives next door, or used to. Nowadays he spends his time wherever he bloody well feels like :smile:):

    This is Meow Meow:

    [​IMG]

    She stows away neatly in the kitchen :wink:

    [​IMG]

    ... and eats stuff she's not supposed to:

    [​IMG]



    And this is Rosie. Rosie and Meow Meow are sisters.

    [​IMG]

    Rosie is the least graceful white cat that I know. Even when she eats, she's not graceful. :biggrin:

    [​IMG]



    BTW, great shots, everybody! There are a lot of much loved pets here, thanks for sharing their photos and stories. Keep 'em coming!
