This photo is amazing! Congrats on your finalist. I am an avid collie lover. I have a white collie, Mollie. This shot reminds me so much of my last baby, Hollie. I hope this wins, it's amazing, you captured the expressive eyes that this wonderful breed has! Well deserved finalist here!! Regards, Sheila #2925616
