19/365+1:Dog Series-Black Dog Looks Red


19/365+1:Black Dog Looks Red, originally uploaded by Yankee T.

This is Black Dog. Black Dog belongs to Younger Daughter. Black Dog only looks really happy when she is in Younger Daughter's lap. To get this photo I got down on the floor and put the camera right in front of Black Dog's face. Her tail was thumping, but otherwise, she's looking totally pathetic. Her coat looks so red in the overhead light.

Isn't it funny how longer-haired black dogs don't look so black when the light is on them? I love these doggie photos :)

I was caught by this.
Just caught.
Her expression is so wonderful - this could easily be a greeting card and a really nice one.

Yes, PPB, this is one of the Thankless Dogs. Thankless Number Two. Thankless Number One is the one who will not be photographed. Thankless Number Three is Red Dog.

This dog thinks she is a lap dog? We've seen pictures of YD. Her lap is not that big.

The coat really does look red. Although on my computer at work it looked much more black. I like the idea of declaring a series. (I've seen series with doors for example) I'll have to think about that.

This is a great shot. What a pretty dog.

My black cat rusts in light, too.
