Carol Teal 9/23/2008 4:04:04 AM

Thank you all so much for your kind comments! I truly appreciate all of you!

Michelle A., Scott did a walk in Dunedin but it was full so quickly I didn't have a chance to get in it. However, he did pay us a quick visit in Safety Harbor, which is where I am told he lives. He didn't go on the walk with us though; he probably wanted to hurry home and upload his photos from his walk.

Colleen, I didn't get the people's address. I offered them a business card to see the image on BP, but the man must have thought I was trying to sell him photos of his dog, so he said "That's ok, I have plenty of pictures of her" and then he hurried off!

Peaches, I didn't know Scott did classes too; I thought he just wrote books!

Michelle F, you certainly do! :)

Jojie, I love both dogs and cats...well really, most animals! I used to work as a veterinarian assistant and in animal control in my younger days! #6497320

Jeff Robinson 9/23/2008 4:42:06 AM

Dianna Hauf 9/23/2008 2:59:16 PM

Oh my goodness Carol! I had a good chuckle over this capture! It is SO DARNED PRECIOUS!!!!! LOVE the expression on 'his/her' face! This is a priceless capture with GREAT etail and clarity and lighting! It WILL BE a winner! I have no doubts! CONGRATULATIONS!!!! #6500348

Pat Gamwell 9/25/2008 11:36:45 PM

Colleen Farrell 9/27/2008 11:16:03 PM

Me too-this should have gotten a gold. :) I'm so behind on congratulations and you didn't tell me how many finalists you got. ;) Anyway, Big, Belated congratulations on a most well-deserved finalist, Carol! #6522277

Elizabeth A. Marker 5/24/2009 5:34:32 AM

Great capture & at the perfect time! These are very unusual looking dogs, but this one is by far the cutiest one I have ever seen and you have captured it so wonderfully! Congrats as well!
Very well deserved! #7552428

Carol Teal 5/25/2009 12:22:09 AM

A late thanks to all of you! I so appreciate your kind words; even when I don't have time to respond I always read all the comments. I hope I have more time this summer to keep up with BP and all of you!

And Elizabeth, they are such unusual looking dogs but the more you see them, I think they begin to grow on you. If you haven't seen Hotel for Dogs, you should watch it. I thought it was a cute movie and it had one of these (Romeo) and he was so cute that even Justin said he wouldn't mind having one! :) #7554237

Laura E. Swan 5/31/2009 6:22:16 PM

This is a Chinese Crested taken today at Safety Harbor, FL during a 2-hour world-wide photowalk. The walk was initiated by Scott Kelby (who lives in the area and whom I actually met today). The rain from tropical storm Fay actually stayed away for our walk, but as you can see from this little dog's ears, the wind did not!
