Nice. Although her eyes are quite soft due to a very slow shutter speed, you get away with it to a large extend because of the soft mood.

I have made the a little sharper in the mod, with some space cropped from the right side.

I've cropped, adjusted Levels, and dodged the face area, which is rather shadowed.

The white balance seems very odd indeed - the result you've posted is very red indeed, and I've altered that to get a more natural look. Room light is warm, but not necessarily that warm!

A lovely relaxed pose and nicely composed too.

It's very soft, as a result of that slow shutter speed. I guess the dog wasn't moving (though if it was you'd need to time your capture much better).
It may have been inconvenient to get a tripod out but you should be thinking of some sort of support, even dragging a chair across the room to act as an impromptu support is better than nothing.

The colour balance is far too orange/red and I wouln't have thought Auto would have produced quite that result unles it was a very orange source such as a coloured bulb or a sodium street light.

It's the lack of sharpness that really does for this image, but fine for the family collection.
