Monika Sapek October 01, 2004

I like this capture, Mary! The low angle with just legs and shoes shows the real point of view of this little and cute doggy! The composition here is also nice! Good job on this one, Mary!

Darren K. Fisher October 01, 2004

OH MY GOSH he is sooooo CUTE. I want to play with him....LOL...Wonderful capture Mary. #816966

Carol Brill October 01, 2004

What a cutie bathed in that warm golden light, Mary, love those alert-looking eyes and that ferocious expression...looks like he could take on someone twice his size, LOL!! #816983

Mary K. Robison October 01, 2004

Monika, Darren, and Carol, I appreciate your comments very much, and I'm glad you're as charmed by Gideon as I am!
He is a feisty little fellow, Carol, but not in a mean way...he romps around with the confidence of a dog that weighs 15 pounds rather than 15 ounces! #817024

Stanley J. Contrades October 02, 2004

This is one cute little guy, Mary, and you've done a great job on his first walk. The addition of the legs and shoes gives an even better dimension of his size! Great job ... have a very nice weekend filled with great images!
Much Aloha,
Stan #817075

Mary K. Robison March 02, 2010

Yes, Pom, little Gideon was very cute, but my neighbors had to return him to the original owner. I think he was just too hyper around their old Yorkie, Sammy.

Hugs back to you in Canada!
