great job on your top 20 placement....what cute pups you have there....oh yes and the kitty too
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/22/2006 12:21:06 PM
Congrats on the POD. From the expression on the cats' face I suspect you might be receiving a little gift amongst the bed sheets one AM. ;)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/21/2006 12:14:05 PM
Jeeze Linda what Do you do - threaten? bribe?
I love the face on the cat - Looks a tad disgruntled - like it is doing you a big favor and there will be pay back in the future.
Way to go.

Great photo...

That is fantastic. How you managed all those animals for the photo is beyond me. They are adorable, excellent work.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/20/2006 10:52:21 AM
Great shot Linda. I agree with Shez here, this would make a fantastic print. Congrats on your top 20 finish.

Great shot - I thought it would be on the front page? Congrats on an awesome shot and a great score!

Oh man!!! This was so one of my favorites in this challenge. I was hoping to see it with a ribbon -- but in a challenge with this many incredible photos -- 13th place is really an honor!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/20/2006 05:57:50 AM
Definately one of my favorites re this challenge and I gave you a "10" Linda.....
I loved it so much, and it would make a wonderful print.....
Your pugs are part of the DPC family, and now with that precious little kitten pf yours, your family is just perfect.....

Great finish Linda! How are the Puggies liking the snowy north?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/20/2006 01:32:37 AM
These DPC family members certainly have grown on us.
Congrats on your top 20 Linda!

This too deserves a ribbon. Congratulations on your top 20 finish.

Gotta be a ribbon contender!

I love how the 2 in front seem to be holding hands !
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/19/2006 06:53:36 PM
action is better than posing pictures
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/19/2006 07:01:02 AM
5 - Certainly a mixture here. Variation in lighting may have given this a bit more drama. First thing I notice though is the 'missing' eyes on the dog bottom left. Cat looks impressed.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/18/2006 06:42:24 PM
Beautiful combination! How did you get (and keep) them in this position?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/18/2006 04:33:19 PM
What's your secret to getting this great group to stay still?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/18/2006 03:38:44 AM
LOve the basket and how did you get the kitty to sit with them...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/17/2006 11:35:40 PM
i had a hard enough time gettting one pet to pose...you managed 4! well done
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/17/2006 01:57:25 PM
Adorable! Just like trying to take a family portrait. There is always one that will close their eyes. LOL!!!! Great picture 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/17/2006 11:23:10 AM
Very nice...how on Earth did you get them all to pose. My dog is a horrible model. Nice lighting and composition.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/17/2006 10:40:40 AM
Love the kitty in the basket.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/17/2006 05:05:26 AM
This makes me laugh, an amusing groupportrait. Did you really get them together like this? Picture is technically pretty nice as well.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/16/2006 10:59:58 PM
This is fabulous. How on earth did you get all these animals to pose like this?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/16/2006 09:26:02 PM
cat says "why exactly am i here"
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/16/2006 04:48:29 PM
I'm guessing the little one in the middle rules the roost. :-)

great title

12/16/2006 08:55:22 AM
nice composition :)

This is really enjoyable family portrait. Nicely done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/15/2006 11:59:39 PM
Ahhh! A family photo. Nice comp.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/15/2006 04:31:10 PM
Now there is a crew for ya! What is the most impressive of all is that the cat is posing (as reluctant as his face looks). Fun capture.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/15/2006 04:02:25 PM
Well, nice job on the lighting and focus and etc. And 1,000 bonus points for being able to keep three dogs and a cat still long enough to get the shot. But ... I'm just not a fan of this kind of studio portrait. They're all just sort of sitting there. I'm not getting any read on any of their personalities, and the lack of a background doesn't really help. I also get the feeling I'll be one of the few who think that way. Sorry.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/15/2006 01:44:39 PM
Ohmygosh!!!!! THIS brought the biggest smile to my face in this whole challenge! How in the WORLD did you get them ALL looking at you. . still all at the same time! You TOTALLY ROCK and certainly need to quit your day job and go into pet portraiture :) If this doesn't win a ribbon, something is terribly wrong with the system! 10 & a Favorite here!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/15/2006 01:07:24 PM
Finally, after 80% of my votes I find a worthy 'portrait'. Bravo! Good lighting and composition. Nothing negitive from me on this shot. Good luck! Hope to see this on the front page. (along with mine :))
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/15/2006 12:57:34 PM
Sweet babys. This is a wonderful set-up. they all deserve big hugs and treats for posing this way for you. 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/15/2006 03:44:08 AM
Ha, ha! Makes me think of the title of that movie, Monsters Inc.:) except for the cat, who's a beauty. The dogs are lovely too, I was just kidding... Cool idea!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/15/2006 12:18:41 AM
Lol. What a lovely family of beauties! 8 for engineering the feat of this togetherness.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/14/2006 10:36:17 PM
jejeje™ Alaska seems to suit them well.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/14/2006 04:10:28 PM
great shot... you did well to get all of them to 'pose' so nicely... good to see cat and dog getting on.. :-)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/14/2006 11:31:00 AM
Very cute! Your lighting seems a bit flat, but it's still cute
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/14/2006 08:22:46 AM
big points for cute factor. What cooperative pets! nice shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/14/2006 02:35:36 AM
Perfect, just perfect..... I love this one.....
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/13/2006 11:00:27 PM
How did you get them ALL to sit still?! Very nice job on the composition and posing :-)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/13/2006 08:51:47 PM
I'm amazed that they're all looking the same direction... I mean, three out of four is even quite impressive!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/13/2006 06:53:43 PM
I couldn't get my one dog to co-operate, and you've got 3 plus a cat! A true portrait--nice lighting, great focus. It would be perfect if they all had their eyes open, but overall this is a great shot. 8 for now.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/13/2006 02:01:39 PM
I bet I know who this is. Linda? If not, then nice job, you got me.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/13/2006 01:45:19 PM
This is beautiful! I'm guessing these are show dogs because they know how to pose. The kitten is a purrfect little accent.
I only wish there was a little more 'hair' light to show their ears better.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/13/2006 12:29:42 PM
how in the world did they all sit still for this?!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/13/2006 12:04:15 PM
it's my favorite! I love it! Very, very,very nice!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
