Hi Folks.
A few shots of Mojo taken over the Christmas break. I tried to think of something different to do :unsure: and then resorted to the old sticking a hat on the dog shot! :oops::rolleyes::) He did enjoy his gifts though!

Always said I would never allow a dog on the furniture! :rolleyes: He’s nearly 9 and his previous owner encouraged him to sit on the sofa, don’t have the heart to stop him now so he has a sheepskin rug in the arm chair! :)

Cheers, Graham.

Hi Arquebus.
Welcome to the forum.
Nice shot, I grew up with one or more border collies around, lovely natured dogs, sometimes a problem if they have the eye, they will round up cats, (yes a collie can herd cats) children, inanimate objects or even sometimes adults! :LOL:

Cheers, Graham.

I can understand that you don't want a dog on a sofa.
Though, mine had:
- 2 sofas
- 1 armchair
- and I had to share with him...

Thanks all!
Cute & very good looking he is, and very energetic - just the obedience part needs some work;) especially now he is entering puberty :eek:

Yesterday I took my "birding" lens (100-400mm II) by accident instead of the 70-200 (as they are almost the same size it's easy to make the mistake :confused:) - so 'subject isolation' through wide aperture was a bit harder...
Made the best of it - and actually for some of the scenes the 100-400 may even have had an advantage; see below
... close up, almost dreamy look ;)

... but when he is playing with another dog it all looks very different :p (they were running up and down a sand dune, sometimes at a distance where >200mm was useful...)

Hi Wiebe.
Lovely shots, I have done the same in the past, confusing the 70-200 and 100-400 lenses, not great when you have a 200mm lens for birding!
I have taken some shots of our dog last week and deliberately took the 100-400, hoping to post some of them soon.
Didn’t your mother ever tell you it’s all fun until one of you gets hurt! :rolleyes: Mine certainly told me and my brother, one of us usually got hurt anyway! :LOL::LOL:

Cheers, Graham.
