Smiler

By Ridgeway
This lovely mannered dog is as over weight as he is lovable,sadly the owner thinks it's sweet when people give her treats.I wasn't very popular when I hinted at such.Even worse when I asked him not to treat Baily.I cant remember his name but Smiler fits for now.Taken in St Anne's a good while ago.One of the best parks in Dublin IMHO for socialising dogs and free running them.My two love this park.
V,2 is some of the mongrels and their dogs,lolGrin
I have been messing about with the txt,,I wanted it to look as if it was written in the dirt,,

THANKS FOR YOUR TIME AND INTEREST IN WHAT I HAVE SEEN

Lovely shot of a super if overweight dog. It a shame some owner owners dont realise they are shortening thier pets life by over feeding. Tony

What a gorgeous dog, Aidan! So sweet! And v2 is a fun shot with all the dogs congregating (like the text).

Adorable! She smiles! But yes she needs more walks and less treats... IB

Such a shame he is so over-weight, Aidan, but he certainly can smile, well captured. Carol

Certainly a lovely looking (and loveable) dog Aidan - but sad the owner doesnt realise the harm

A super close up in V1 Aidan - why do people insist that they are kind to their dogs by giving them treats? This poor fellow will suffer in later life, probably with hip problems due the extra weight. At least you refuse to let them fatten up Baily!
V2 is a natural, well taken image - like the wording too, very clever.

He is absolutely gorgeous Aidan, love your name for him too Grin V2 is a great shot and dog walking appears to be very sociable for all concerned, love the text too Grin

My sister had a dog just like Smiler, a slimmer version... Lovely portrait Aidan. Love the doggy meeting too.
