I have been trying to get out to this site for the ten days. I finally had the chance today.

Over the winter an Oak tree went down due to rot in the center of the trunk. I notice the fine looking opening a couple of weeks ago when I was walking the dog with my wife.
I placed my camera down in the stump and used the self timer. I know this first shot is a little over-exposed. I didn't use the flash however, I really like the texture of the inside of the stump.
Thanks for looking,
Steve

Some other people were walking their little dog and I asked them if they would mind holding the pooch up to the opening for a shot. They were happier than the dog.:lol:

Great shots, Steve. I like the second the most. It's hard to tell if that dog is happy or ready to take your hand off!

Ha, me too. That little gal was really friendly. I don't think she quite knew why she was being held up to a hole in a stump, but she was a good sport.
I don't remember the breed name but she was the size of a chihuahua but looked like a little Doberman. Maybe a miniature Doberman? Makes sense.

I don't know what breed that is, but I sure don't want to get close to it with those teeth.

Good job, Steve.

I believe that's a Rotweiler.

I agree that it does look like a Rotweiler Cal. However, let me give the picture some perspective. I don't think there are miniature Rotweilers.
I did chuckle at the thought though.

great shots!

The dog really looks BIG in the second shot. Then you gave the photo some scale by including the hand with the dog, and now we see he's really not large at all!

I hereby request to change my vote. It is a "MinPin" or miniature Doberman Pincer.
