This picture was taken with my Pentax istDS and Tamron 28-75mm XR Di 2.8 lens and used the onboard flash. It is my first shot of him and I am sure I will continue to have many, many more.

He is a Pembroke Welsh Corgi and his name is "Kawika" (cah vee cah) which means, "David" in Hawaiian. He is nine weeks old and will be a handful for a while.

Second one was the same as the first in set-up but somehow forgot to save the exif for it.

This is with my adopted neice holding the new addition.

Mate, I miss my woofer, she was put down about 5 years ago after getting cancer. I love dogs and sometimes their expressions are almost human.

He looks like a little bundle of fun and a good subject to shoot. I shot this one last year in Tonga.

Thanks for the post. Kawika is adorable and that first shot is great! You can't help but love him! I look forward to seeing him grow up!

Nice looking dog there. I always had a soft spot for dogs. It took me quite some time to get over the loss of my dog previous to "Kawika". I am glad I decided to try again, its been too long and I miss their crazy antics and undying devotion to the owner.

Their facial expressions are priceless and I hope to capture some of them as we go along.

You are definitely a boon to dogs as you are to this forum. I enjoy the posts of information and ideas, you share some great insight.

Love the picture, "red eye" and all. I would love to see more here or a link where I can view them. I'm sure you have before but at that time I was not contemplating having a dog in my life again and my interests were only "sports" oriented mostly.

It just hit me one day a while back and I wrestled with the notion to make sure I can make that commitment I had before and well as you can see I am glad I decided on bringing the bundle of rascal joy to my home.

Roy, can we get to see a follow-up photo of Zoe and Zander? Are they still in your home?

Tom, you've bought yourself a lot of trouble, enjoyable trouble and everything is forgiven and forgotten when that puppy looks into your eyes and says "did I do something wrong?"

We are waiting for a puppy this summer, so our Cookie gets a playmate.

It's amazing to me how that puppy with the big face and eyes will eventually have a body to match (notice I did not say legs, I'm familiar with Corgis, wonderful dogs). I'm another one who decided not to replace my faithful hiking buddy, a Golden Retriever, when he passed away a couple of years ago. I'm waiting until retirement before I get another - we are just gone way too many hours during the day. Luckily I had the Sony during most of his life, he was my favorite model while hiking so I have many pictures of him. You are SO lucky to have him.
