"Guess Who Came To Dinner?"

By RonnieAG
Brodie (who will be one year old this month) spent a day with us and whilst waiting to be served dinner made himself at home as usual.
I wasn't going to post this one b/o technical inadequacies but I hope the cute factor in some way was a fairly quick snatch shot and I only wracked up the ISO to 400 to avoid having to use flash.

My thanks for all the kind comments on Virginia Creeper.

well you couldn't possibly have used flash... it would have disturbed the poor lad!
He has become a handsome chap indeed.

HE certainly makes the use of this chair as his favourite.
He would be hard to getting him out of it except if you called
him for dinner….
Just lovely……..

He must be such a joy to have around, even if it does mean he takes over the best seat in the house! Great portrait of him and not using the flash acknowledges that old saying "Let sleeping dogs lie"!

He certainly matches the chair colour, Ronnie...a colour-conscious labrador? Bet he woke up quick enough when the smell of the dinner came wafting out from the kitchenWink
