My daughter has got a Labrador and these are a great breed of dog once the silliness is out of them.
Though training helps a lot at early stages with these I have found.
Deacon is a good looker.
Thank you! They can be a handful when they are young, but you have to treat them like kids in many ways. Teach them boundaries, what’s theirs and not theirs, what’s acceptable behavior and what’s not. Deacon has been pretty easy. He has a wonderful “off switch”, where we can be out training and he will run 100 mph through a brick wall to retrieve and be super excited, but as soon as we cross the threshold into the house he melts into a lazy brown blob haha!

This is Penny and I will say I love her. She is my dog when I visit the grandies and daughter.
She will listen to me over them due to the work I done with her early on.
I even came up with her name. But this is a great dog when grown up.

These are three of my babies: Paco, 1yo (adopted street dog), Umma (another rescued street dog), something between 2 and 4yo and Boris, one of my twins black labs, 12yo.

I have two dogs! This is my boy, Ben. He's a mutt of many colors, mostly hound (Treeing Walker Coonhound, Beagle), Spitz (Chow Chow, Norwegian Elkhound, American Eskimo) and Pit Bull. He's now maybe somewhere between 7 and 8.

This is my girl Lea, she's a Border Collie and just turned 4 a few weeks ago.

I also take photos of friends' dogs and my mom's dog. This is my mom's dog, Abbie. She's a 2-year-old Poodle/Cocker mix.

This was my beloved Dahlia, who we lost in 2019. She was a Border Collie/Golden Retriever mix. This photo is from 2013, so she was about 7 to 8ish or so at the time.

TaeYang during the pre studio-photoShoot adaptation period in the garden, A1 doing its (dog) eye-AF magic on this nervous friend, with 7M3 would probably not have had a single shoot in focus.

#GasparOnWheels (local celebrity)Also my first ever hands-on with a focal distance above 135mm, in this case a 200-600mm fresh out of the shop/box.
Luckily A1's dog eye-AF totally masks my total lack of experience with such lenses.

EDIT: replaced the image with a better version
