My "snuggle bunny" Juliet and her little stuffed golden toy. I love this shot and may print and frame it. I was trying to get her to sit up and stay and look at the camera and keep her tongue in her mouth and not blink and not charge for the treats in my hand, then focus the camera and take some shots in my spare time. I got about 6 photos that I think are really good, but the pose, expression, and composition in this one really stand out.

Juliet is really cute! I like it because she is cuddled with her stuffed doggie.

7 - Nice - just wish the fabric had no stray hairs and was more subtle, along with the toy, allowing Juliet to dominate the image more.

Awww! Look at that face, look at those eyes with such a doleful expression! The way I see this picture of Juliet is she looks at you with those sad eyes giving one the guilt trip by saying "I'll just cuddle here with my best pal because no one wants to give me a pat on the head." Great pose, great expression and wonderful lighting. Love the golden hues on the dog and that of the stuffed animal - they really pop visually off of the black background.

The dog is lovely. Beautiful fur and eyes but the stuffed animal kills it for me.

Juliet looks like Golden Retreiver and a touch of Basset Hound with those droopy eyes. Nice shot with the stuffed toy. Hey its a pet with a pet.
