I discovered something while shooting my own dog (which actually sounded quite bad, but you know what I mean). Anok is probably paying attention to you instead of the lens, or anywhere else, so the white part of his eyes are very much visible. I guess that can be a matter of taste and appeal, but I found my photos getting much more depth and focus when I tried to prevent those parts of showing. Anyway, this a very, very good photo, and your greyscale toning is spot on. Your pet looks absolutely beautifull too!

Lovely, classic portrait. Nice detaail and tones and the sheen on the fur accentuates an athletic-looking body.
