Under the circumstances, Roger, a quick snap is probably all you can get, no time for much else. As such, you did well, and your composition is good, with space on the side into which the dog is looking, and no body parts missingGrin. White animals present particular difficulties with exposure, and you will notice how the light has burnt out some "top" areas of the dog's body, namely the head, tail and back. Some exposure compensation may have helped to keep detail within those bright areas. I have done a modification where I cloned trees into the top right so that the white of the sky doesn't detract so much from the animal. I then tried to put a bit of fur detail into the burnt out areas, lightened the eye and selectively sharpened it. It helps the viewer to better associate with an animal if it is looking at you, but without knowing the dog, you might not have been able to get its full attention. You could ask its name and call the name, that might be worth trying. Anyway, it's a very cute dog and a nice picture, so glad the owners were pleased.
