My friend once almost lost a dog named Pooh. It was fun driving around at one in the morning yelling "POO! POO!" Turned out she was sitting on the back porch.

7 - Nice portrait of Pooh. Don't mind the off-center, wonder if it were even more so (or more angled/diagonal), might give this more of an edge and make it even better in my opinion. Also, just a little sharper/more 'pop' on Pooh's eyes.

I think you did a wonderful job coaching. I don't know if the reflection in the eye of yourself is good or not, but it would make better without. Some good contrast would help too, the white background is a bit over powering. I do like the layout of this photo, nice angle and I like they way Pooh is waiting...like what ever he's waiting for. I think there's hope for this I give you a 7.

He looks like he is really listening to instruction or to what he is being promised for supper. A hugable darling.

Good straightforward gaze and capture. (Another photographer in the eye?)

Wonderful. Excellent focus, dof, clarity, crop, expression...etc! Nicely done and a beautiful doggie!
