Meet Chico, a little cross-bred dog belonging to friends of ours. Whilst on holiday in the USA they found the little dog wandering on the highway. Nobody claimed him so they took him back home with them to Switzerland, where he now rules the roost. His tail never stops wagging, as you can see!

Many thanks for your C&Cs on my last upload - very much appreciated as always.

Superb capture of this lovely little dog, the detail in the coat is awesome. I love that alert look and the wagging tail.

A very well travelled and much loved Chico, adorable and made even more so in this sharp image of him, with that appealing look he is giving you Sylvia, and just love how you captured the wagging tail, a masterpiece

This is superbly li Sylvia and the attentive look really shows in the sharp eyes, but what makes this image for me is the motion in the tail.
Superb

WOW Sylvia, this is superb! Gorgeous lighting showing amazing detail plus a wonderful alert expression and the wagging tail, well what can I say, simply excellent photography! You've captured here what I 'aim' to achieve every time I take a shot of a pet.... and that is it's personality. Very, Very well done!
