Cindy Hamilton June 15, 2011

Thank you all so much for liking this. I keep telling Conway that he's famous today! NOw, if the obedience classes work, we'll be much better off...he loves to swim and then roll in the dirt! #9462338

Meghan Gonski June 15, 2011

i've never seen anything like this before. fantastic. did you plan this? or was it a spur of the moment? what were your settings? #9462437

Cindy Hamilton June 15, 2011

I was trying to get this shot. I worked on it for at least half an hour, between Conway's dives into the water. Actually, Jim Miotke, BP's head, talked about getting a shot like this years ago, when he was my one year instructor, and this was the first time that I got it. The settings were ISO 400 f/5.6 1/800 sec with an 80-400 lens at 400mm. Thanks for asking! Conway is a good dog, but as wild as he looks with this shot! #9462490

Meghan Gonski June 15, 2011

tha'ts awesome your hard work paid off and you got a POTD for it!
thanks for those settings.
I betcha he had a lot of fun "modeling" for you since you had to get him wet between shots :) #9462499

Cindy Hamilton June 15, 2011


The truth is, we have to keep him out of the pool!!! He lives to swim...Shaking off is secondary! #9462502

Julianne Bradford June 15, 2011

Terrific POTD! Congratulations! #9462514

Cindy Hamilton June 15, 2011

Meghan Gonski June 15, 2011

sounds like my late dog, he litterally jumped out of the motorhome window during a stoplight when he saw a lake in the summer years ago! ran clear across the beach before we even knew what happened. #9462627

Susan D. Royce level-classic June 15, 2011

I Love it! I tried this several times myself & it is not easy! Great image! I would be interested to know what settings you used.
Congratulations on your POTD! #9462890

That is a work of art! With two lab puppies who have just discovered the joy of our lake, I get plenty shakes like this on me! One of the best dog pics I've seen in awhile! Congrats! #9471364

Cindy Hamilton June 21, 2011

Thank you soooooo much Lisa, Donna and Amy. We are into day 6 of obedience training with Conway, and he's doing a little better/smarter. #9471373

Carolyn Vickers August 22, 2011

I love this! You totally filled the photo with his personality. Is he a golden retriever? He looks at least part, and to love the water then roll in the dirt is one of their "practical jokes". I have 2 and they are a handful.
I just saw this as I was looking at some of the older POTDS. Great job! #9620400

Cindy Hamilton August 22, 2011

Hi Carolyn,

Yes, Conway is a golden, as far as we can tell. He's a two year old rescue dog from the Golden Retriever Rescue Group here in NC. He's crazy...and the most loving dog we've ever had...and we have always had goldens. Thanks for the kind words. #9620457
