Her Obsession
Our dog Nala has been obsessed with this little red ball that came in her feline sister's cat litter for about 3 years. We've had to hide it off and on during those three years because this ball makes her absolutely crazy!

Thanks Kathy, Lori, Colette, and Jill! She is a Shih-Tzu, almost 8 years old. We think since the ball came in the cat litter, it must have catnip in it. Our cat has never cared for it but Nala took to it the second she saw it. :)

This is how she usually holds it--tight in her jaws, protecting it from "predators" (otherwise known as my children)!

This is a terrific photo on many levels, Olivia. The whites are just wonderful without being blown-out at all (something that gives me fits!) and that bright red ball draws you attention right into the photo. Nala's eyes are sharply focused -- a must for portraits. I don't see any room for improvement on this one!

Wouldn't that be fun?! :) We'd have to invite my Edgar to come along as well. I'll have to get a nice portrait up of him so you can see how similar he looks to your Misiu.

OH she is so cute. She is a Shih Tzu right? I have four of them. Two that are soon to be three and two that are just pups. My Ally looks a lot like this one she is the one that had pups. You done a wonderful job here and congrats on being a finalist.

Darren, I didn't see this message until just now! :-)

Thanks so much! Yes, she's a Shih Tzu--just turned 8 in April. She's so fun! My first "baby"! :-)

I remember seeing pictures of your newborn pups. What an amazing thing to witness!
