Never being one to resist other people's pets/pet photos (or my own..!!) I have to add my fur-babies to the mix..



Skye, my lhasa apso cross. She is 15 years old, blind and deaf, and I love her to bits. She is a bit of a nagging old lady, but she is allowed to be. She is also "top dog" in the house!!



This is Charlotte, my nearly 2 year old German Shepherd. (In the photo she is just over 1 year). She is a delight - and loves posing for photos!! This is her waiting patiently (NOT!!) for her balls to be thrown in the park. She obeys all that Skye asks of her...



And this is Shadow, the oldest of the crew. She is 16 years old now, and lives most of her days in the pot plant on my front deck!

Thanks everyone for sharing - what a lovely idea for a thread. All the photos are gorgeous.

Heather

Thanks! We just love her. She's the sweetest dog. Actually, she's a mutt. Her father was full-bred cocker spaniel, mom was 1/2 beagle 1/2 unknown. We found her through www.petfinder.com .

She's a Belgian Shepherd (Groenendael), just over 6 years old, and still plays like a puppy. Also still has the fluffy hair round the back of her legs like a pup!

This is our 15 year old terrier mutt. She's quite the challenge to photograph. If you get too much light in her eyes, they glow solid green. not enough and you'll never see her eyes at all because the dark fur and big eyebrows. The black fur really draws in the light too. A bounce flash seems to produce the best results.

On a sadder note, the vet told us yesterday that her kidneys have pretty much failed and she's only got a couple of days left. We've got some great photos and memories to remember her though. It's hard enough on my wife and I (we got her as a puppy from my folks shortly after we were married) but explaining it to my 5 year old is even harder.

rtphokie, your girl is beautiful, and I'm sorry to hear she's ill. We lost our two dogs (pictured in OP) when our twins were around the same age as your child. One of their teachers was a dog lover, and lent us a copy of this book http://www.amazon.com/Dog-Heaven-Cyn.../dp/0590417010 It helped our kids understand, but really I think I got more out of it than they did. It's sold at Borders and such places, hope it might help your family.

I noticed the "green eye" phenomenon as our dogs aged too, especially in one of them who had the eye disease pannus. I think you've done a great job getting the effect you want without showing a lot of the green.

I appreciate your kind words and book suggestion. I picked up that one up at the library it was helpful. I also checked out Mr. Roger's book on pet loss and found his no-nonsense approach helpful as well.

rtphokie - So sorry about the news your vet gave you. It's amazing how they become family and it's so difficult to say goodbye, especially after having them since puppies. DH and I had to put down our first dog last year, we got him as a pup at a local animal shelter when we were first married and the day we had to put him down was such a difficult day for all of us (DD also who was 12).

This is our beloved Gizmo (this was taken when he was younger and it's the one I thought of when I saw the picture BethanyF posted of her dog). I posted our shih tzu's and cat when this thread first started but I just came across these in an old email from my mother so I'm happy to be able to post a picture of him since my pictures of him are on my other computer.



My father with my parents dog George and our Gizmo...

This is Maizie, when she was a pup. She's such a good natured dog. Just fabulous with the kids.



With her best buddies in Vermont...


And Emmadog, my devoted beagle and best buddy.

sorry about your pup..we lost 2 of our cats this fall and it's hard to deal with for sure.
one of the two, Felix aka fee fee aka demon kitty due to his tendency to pounce on you, vertically ,with all 4 paws claws out, sink them into the flesh of your nearest appendage and then hang on to till he drew blood...ouch

Here is Reagan playing in the snow. Rare for her to do this, since we live in the Dallas area
