I wouldn't even think about taking it. Just curious, but is the blue on the tip of the nose and along the right hand side of the picture (dog's left side) a reflection?

The blue on the tip of the nose is a reflection. I did not see it until you pointed it out. The blue on the left side of the dog is his collar.

What a fine portrait of a great pet! Very sharp and detailed, and very expressive.

What an expressive face! I've seen that look before, it's such a typical doggy look.

Really lovely dog - very natural colours and good exposure.

If I may add a little C&C, the composition could do with a little more consideration as a shot taken straight on often looks a little flat (not talking so much about the dog shot !) and positioning the head (or main subject point) right in the middle of page is generally a no-no too.

The rule of thirds is a great place to start (Google is your friend) and so is just scanning through magazines and seeing how pros position their subjects.

My mate (a full time Pro shooter) gave me another valuable tip too - shoot wider than you need and crop to the composition you want.

Nice looking dog and nice shot, I bet you could take the bone looks like a nice pet. I do agree with Frogfish on the composition but with the FA43 that could have been difficult indoors.
