  Thanks so much everyone! You have a Great Dane, Denny? I used to hop on one and ride around when I was little. His name was Bo and he was light grey. Sweetheart. Tell me yours doesn't track in dirt, can't even imagine the size of the tracks on the floor! LOL June Marie, I had to paint my nails to match his collar. Details, details! LOL

I can't wait to view the other winning photos, 56, now that's an amount I can handle! Every time I get caught up it seems, there are MORE photos to view.

Stephanie, this is one of the photos that agency liked so much, problem was I needed about 50 more "conceptual" just like it to sign on! Yes, this win makes the hard work worth it!
