This pupper has heart cancer, his first chemo treatment was the day of this photo, he is a very specially trained dog and I am so sad for him that he is battling this at a young age (7). I have ordered him a large framed canvas as a gift to thank them both for their service and canít wait to gift it to them.

Good on you!

First, terrific image.

Second, you'd best bring a box of Kleenex for your cop.

Nothing is harder than to watch your dog die before he should.

A dog is part of your life.

You are his/her whole life.

He will be overcome by your gift.

Sometimes, this photography stuff is an arrow to the heart.

A beautiful portrait of the two. I love the lighting. The story of the bond between this man and his dog is so apparent in your choice of creating a statement in the uniforms, background and lighting. A very well executed portrait. A top favorite in this challenge.

this is another stand-out portrait Erin .. has the same feeling as 'not all who wander are lost' ..
its the sort of image that captures your attention immediately .. then you look at the details .. well i do anyway .. ;)
absolutely loving your depth of field .. thats magic .. the man and the dog .. there's a story there .
congrats on 4th .. i'm assuming the guy in the pic would love a copy ... it really is very special . :)
