This is "Lucy", our princess. She is a very obedient dog, loving and loyal. She will do almost anything for a treat, including tirelessly sitting through a photo shoot. She kept turning to the side because her tail was scrunched up in the chair, so I would have to straighten her up and quickly take a shot. This is her "are we done yet" look.

Thank you all for the lovely comments and the generous score.
