I think a little shadow play would not hurt the portrait.

What a cutie! Background overwhelms him a bit with its brightness.

4 - Lighting looks a bit harsh. Like that you've gone for a different color background, but not sure this color choice is well suited to Sammy's colors. Because both eyes are not clearly visible, makes one look a little 'odd', in my opinion.

Cute dog, but the green is not working so good for me. That is just me.

What a cutie! I like the solid background. To nitpick, I wish there was more detail in the chest area.

Nice focus!! Lighting a bit harsh to me. Perhpas back up light or use a little different angle.
