Ha--LOL. Thanks, Cathy. Not the most expressive dog I've ever met, but I got a few cute ones anyway. See my site for more of this puppy, and I've also added some new shots in my PEOPLE and KIDS galleries.

Piper, this is such a cute picture! Looks like he (or she) is going to jump from the photo. #40175

Piper Lehman May 26, 2019

Thanks! Here's another. #40177

Looks pretty expressive to me! :) I like the softness too. I'll have to head over to your site to see all the new stuff. :) #40283

Cathy M. Gromball May 26, 2019

Thank you for directing me to your website, Piper! It's awesome - excellent work!

Wow! You got the focus & composition spot on, great shot :) #40541

Piper Lehman May 26, 2019

Cliff, are you screwing with me? Hmmm... #40547

clifton Mair May 26, 2019

God no!! His/her eye is in perfect focus (to my eye) which drew my attention straight to it and gave me a direct connection to his/her personality (at least the way I connect to humans/animals). By throwing the rest of the face out of focus I got an immediate 'hit' from this photograph.
I think it's great! :)
You did of course mean to use focus in that way?....didn't you? #40554

Kathleen Clemons May 26, 2019

Congrats to you again! :) #54586

Stephanie Adams May 26, 2019

He melts my heart. Congrats on this one too, this is your month Piper! #54707

Piper Lehman May 26, 2019

Surprise, surprise! Never thought this would make it into the finalists. Figured it was too far to the left with the soft focus and all. Never can tell...Thanks for the comments, guys! #54763

Patricia Marroquin May 26, 2019

This makes me laugh, Piper. What is it with you and dog noses? They always win for you. :-) Congrats! #55523

Cathy M. Gromball May 26, 2019

Congratulations on finals with this adorable shot, Piper!
