Several of you have asked about how Barney the chemo dog is doing, and I appreciate the thoughts.

Amazingly, the lump has shrunk again, and he is perkier than ever. I don't know how long this round of happiness will last but at least he is doing good right now.

This dog loves to escape and take a run thru the woods. However, when I make him go outside into the back yard, he is always having a cow about being outside. Makes no sense to me at all. So here I am with the camera, calling his name to the door, and teasing him so I could take his pic. And he rewarded me with nose prints all over the door.

i hardly believe its the same dog .... he looks so perky!!! ... and yes i know photography can make ppl and dogs look very different with each different shot ... anyway ... my other dog sasha who is 14 years old is an absolute buggar too ... she whines to go out so you let her out ... not 2 seconds later she then whines to come in!!! & usually she hasnt actually done anything either, like take a pee .. its just walk outside and then immediately want to come in again ... so ok .. you let her in and buggar me she then whines to go out again .. usually i then let her out and leave her there ... fortunately she soon gets over being a pain and goes and amuses herself eating other animals droppings ... she has quite a amazing variety to choose from ... there are the sheep droppings of course, which would probably make up the bulk of her grazing ... then there are the wombat, kangaroo, rabbit, hare and possibly echidna droppings too ... she smells absolutely horrible ... there's nothing you can do, and if you live in the country then your dogs will eventually carry on like animals !!! .. i spoke to the vet coz i thought it was so gross and he said its actually not that bad for them and its very very common .. you look at their gorgeous faces and expressions and cant imagine they'd do anything so amazingly disgusting .. WRONG ... .. hope old barney doesnt put you thru such grossness ??!! :)

As stated by others, the door does a nice job of framing the dog. The horizontal and vertical boards in the background add to it also.

Wonderful photo - I love the framing created by the door. Glad to hear that the little dude is doing well for the moment. I hope it holds and he'll continue to live a happy life.

Nice framing with the door and the nose prints add texture to the shot.

Too funny! Glad Barney is doing well Michelle! Now your trying for the John E. clown peering through the door window effect here aren't you!! LOL. J/K!
Very nice shot of a very cool dog! Nice expression too, he sort of has that "would you hurry up!!" look!! Very nice.
Edit for typo...

I am glad that Barney is enjoying a renewed burst of life (which was exactly what you said you wanted to achieve when you took him for the treatment)

He certainly looks fantastically alert and perky in this shot

I'm so glad Barney is staying out of trouble ;) Very sweet looking pooch. And it's just like him to get in trouble by looking sad at the door after apparently wanting to be out so much! Lovely framing and composition.
