Oh..mygoodness! I am in disbelief that this photo is my 2nd highest rated photo since I've been in DPchallenge... 257 challenges. Thank you all so much for the amazing comments and great score!

I wish this precious dog, Pipsqueak, was mine... but I borrowed him from the Saving Grace Dog Rescue organization that my bestie founded. We did a photo session yesterday for another of her sweet dogs that we're hoping to find a forever family for, but Pipsqueak was so striking, I wanted to photograph him too for the challenge.

Thankfully, Pipsqueak already has a forever home. His new mom is just waiting for him to finish up his shots. She lost her beloved lab a few months ago, so Pipsqueak will be a beautiful healer in her life, and she will give him all the love he deserves. He's only about 10 to 12 weeks old, so he's likely going to be one biiiig lap dog as he grows.

He has a certain authority. I hope you can keep us posted as he grows up - school, career, honours...

WOW!!!! Second highest score ever! Congratulations Sandy not only for capturing the "Red", but capturing this beautiful portrait of a puppy that we all know, can't sit still for over 3 seconds. Great shot!

Hey Sandy, congrats on the Red and a great score!
Such a cute pup, it's no surprise he's found a new home already!

I don't know but once again I thought this was yours. I think you photographed the little pups before.

Congratulations on a great score. Somehow pet portraiture seems to do that- this dog was made for the camera.
