Excellent job of catching that lovely smile Rui Felipe!!! Also love the name! #60837

Thank you very much Kathleen. I was lucky because most of the time, Valentine is running and running everywhere and she is never calm like that, for one second, she stopped playing in the garden and talked to me... I was really lucky...
I attached another pictures of her playing in the garden a few minutes before .... you will see it's not the same smile (lol)
Thank you

Thank you all for your kind comments...
Ola SU! Whats new in Portugal ?? Yes I bough a second hand EOS 10D and it is a very good camera, but I still have to discover, because I am a lot of work, and no time to take more pictures... is everything ok for you ??
Thank you for your support Kathleen.
Thank you Robert, yes she was at rest (as you can see in the other picture, it never happens her to be so quite)...
Thank you for you support too.
