Default I'm ready when you are!

This is the look King gives me when he is ready to go for a walk. He runs free most of the time, but really loves it when I go with him.

Not bad, you did nicely not blowing out the highlight with all the white, very good exposure on a nicely lite day.

He's got a great smile to match his personality, Robert. Well captured. Getting the WB right must have been a bear.

Robert,

Perfect exposure. Yes, the eyes sure show expectation. I suppose you can get those eyes after your walks too, but then out of satisfaction.

Nothing like making another being happy

Torgny

He's got very fine teeth. How do you make sure they remain that white an clean

Shoturtle, thanks, for three years now, blowing out his fur has been my hardest problem to overcome. White dogs and black dogs, each bring their own difficulties...

Diverdave, thanks, King appreciates all compliments!

Ordo, yes the WB is always tricky with him, sometimes I get lucky.

Gary, he has a beautiful personality (caninality?), he loves everyone, and they love him. Thank you.

Torgny, yes he's happy most of the time. Sometimes I have to leave him for a few hours, and he suffers separation anxiety. I have to make it up to him by taking him to the woods. He could go by himself, but it's more fun when I go along, so he can "show off" and recieve praise.
About his teeth, I clean them weekly, and give him real meat bones to "eat".

Banksy, thanks, and you are so right. Anyone who says they are good enough to get a white dog correct EVERY time would be....lying? It is a challenge.
