Wow, Wow... WOW! What a score! I'm in shock! Thanks bunches, folks!

Jack, (a Silky Terrier, CJ) will be so excited when I wake him in the morning to take the kids to school with me and I tell him of his RIBBON!!

Outtakes: Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_850013.jpg and Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_850014.jpg

We had a good time... I love the soap residue on his fur where the bubbles popped on him so often! When I gave him a bath afterward, he didn't require much soap. *smile*

Oh... and I think 21.gif pointandshoot is right. :)

be great if we could introduce jack and katee .. what a pair they'd make .. both, it seems, with a zest for life and fantastic personalities .. !! .. katee is now 9 years old and classed as a senior dog .. but if ppl ask how old she is and i tell them they are amazed .. she must have good genes .. how old is jack .?. he looks like a kid in this shot .. !!

This is the umpteenth time I visited this pic since last year. Every time I miss my dog, I come here and am reminded of all the good things in life. Can't thank you enough for such a wonderfully uplifting and fun photo.

This may be my third of fourth comment on this image :-) I can't tell you enough how much I love it. It's not only technically brilliant, but there is so much more there than a cute dog picture.

Pet photographers note: Now THAT is a decent, interesting, fun, cool, thoughtful pet shot.

I am assuming that no K9 was harmed in the making of this image, which is intended for human entertainment.

Did he burp bubbles for a while? hehe. WD on the another ribbon!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/27/2010 11:01:48 PM

THIS IS SO GOOD
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/27/2010 02:58:03 PM
This is delightful, and it's miraculous that the voters actually acknowledged it with a ribbon :-) In a sea of plastic, technical tours-de-force, this stands out as an intensely *human* (all right, canine) instant in time... I gave it a 9.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/27/2010 02:04:34 PM

01/27/2010 10:50:32 AM
Oh Lydia!!! You're really trying to hurt me, aren't you! That much cute popping out of my screen at one time is actually painful! How did you get all those bubbles flying around? That is freaking AWESOME! Besides bubbles, its one of the cutest pet portraits I've ever seen! Way to GO!!!

Excellent! I love the dog and the way you excluded the eyes! The exposure and lighting are superb, and the B&W conversion looks great. 9

woah that's crazy, nice job on it
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/25/2010 12:54:58 PM
I love the detail of the dog and the lack of color that seems to contribute to it.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/25/2010 12:38:23 PM
This is good
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/25/2010 02:48:21 AM
dog is more of the main subject than the bubbles, but i really like the photo
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/24/2010 11:58:24 PM
LOL! What a fabulous shot. I can't decide if this fits the challenge or not (the bubbles are so secondary to the amazing pooch), but it's just such a great shot. Incredible detail on the fur, and how it pops off the background. High marks for a great photo, dings for not quite a "bubble" shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/24/2010 10:47:03 PM
Nicely done!

The sharpness of the chest and that one can't see his eyes make this photo great,
