BetterPhoto.com Editor's Pick   Bah! Humbug!
Bah! Humbug!
This is George, who's thinking "Bah! Humbug!" What George wants is a home for Christmas.He and six littermates were left at the shelter. All the pups were adopted except him.

Oh, who could resist those sad, soulful eyes? I'll keep my fingers crossed that someone's spirit of Christmas extends to taking in a new family member! Cute photo, Mitch!

I am just loving this one too, Mitch -- all the entries are not in yet but I'm betting on it for a big score in the 101 theme. And more! What a wonderfully soulful look -- he's not too happy about those antlers at all, is he? And what a great ending to his story -- you must be so very pleased to know the part your photos played in his placement. Wonderful composition.

What a wonderful gift he and his new family will make each other. Good good story, Mitch...and great capture of it in his beautiful eyes and demeanor.

Funny, when I started my comment, I thought it would be right after Arlene's -- but Susie, Les and Monnie all got in between us. Says something about my verbosity but says more about the immediacy of the impact this image has on the viewer, I think :)

OK you made me cry!! When I read he had been in the shelter for three years I was about ready to fly out and adopt him. I am sooo happy he is going home after Christmas and I bet he will be the most loving pet anyone cpould imagine. Rescue dogs are the best!! You photo is perfectly captured and those eyes are so expressive!! HTD!!

I am so happy he has a happy ending!! I can't believe he's been there that long! I also volunteer at our local spca photographing the animals up for adoption, and know how rewarding it is to help find these sweet babies homes with our cameras and stories!!

Should be cover boy for Pet Adoption - such a delightful albeit sad face! My son has just adopted to rescue greyhounds - rescue's are the best! Bet we see this again...

Merry Xmas

Hey Mitch, one of our best friends is from Omaha (now in Ohio), so we've been cheering Nebraska on since somewhere in the mid-1960s. And, we Ohio State fans have an extra-special reason to rejoice if they beat Arizona in the bowl game! We'll cross our fingers that everything comes up roses and corn!

Awwww..... he's a beautiful dog, that makes me so sad to know how many are in his same position but I'm so happy that he'll have a new home soon and I just pray that the rest of his life will be so wonderful that he'll forget his difficult first years!

He made a great card too! So glad he found a home. I didn't want to come out there! At least not this time of the year.
