The Good Boy.

By Tooma

"This very photogenic boy was waiting right on the spot where his owner left him. The owner was just a few feet behind us, in the main house at Chatelherault, and this obedient furry fellow sat with his eyes trained on the doors waiting for his master to appear (which he did quite quickly, this adorable dog was not left unattended for long) I tried to coax him into looking at me but other than a very brief flick of the eyes to see who was crouching and cooing at him, he would not be finessed into looking at me directly for any length of time. Once his owner reappeared he was off like a shot to retrieve the ball that was thrown for him. Very glad I managed to get a couple of photos of him as, I am sure that many will agree, he has such a lovely face."

One can easily tell that this lovely dog is well cared for by noticing his brushed coat---behaved so nicely!

Looks like he is waiting to get the ball thrown. Very nice image of him, with good colours and a wonderful alert pose.
