As always, very nice.
I'll also just add that I work with a lot of photographers, and one thing I can count on to set any of them off is people complimenting their cameras for their work.
Me, I work with photographers, but I'm not one. Most likely if they gave me their cameras, and I gave them my cellphone, they'd still come back with better pictures than me.
No doubt that would be the case with you as well.
Beautiful dog, and very nice shots.
