Man's Best Friend

I took this shot yesterday at Linn Park. This man and his best friend touched my heart. My dear Baxter looked just like this one, and I can promise you I loved him as much as this man does his beautiful friend. Don't worry, I gave this pup a scratch behind the ears and told him what a good boy he was! As a photographer , it is a privilege to capture some special moments with my camera. This is one of those times for me.

Such a moving shot. The position of his hands, the angle of his head, the devotional stance of the dog...excellent work, V.

It looks like Fiddo was about to give Tom a lick on the cheek!

Les chiens ne sont pas toujours mes amis , il faut parfois que je cours pour leur échapper

I can see pure love working two ways in this photo.

Mauvais chiens à Chateaubriant? Quelle dommage!

Loves his papa,that pretty boy does! I'm dog sitting my neighbor's sweet shepherd mix this week and instead of camera in hand it was leash in hand for today's walk.
How fun that this pet reminded you of your own dear lad. Cool catch of pure devotion.

What interests me about this is that both man and dog seem to have their eyes closed. It's as if they have to find their way together. They sort of make a service animal cooperative.

This photo made me dream about my dear departed Miss Hogan...

I think it's a mutual admiration going on here - just as it should be as far as I am concerned! People that never have pets in their llives just don't know what they're missing. Love the photo, V. Another one of your winners!!!
