Waiting for Santa by Cassandra28 Waiting for Santa by Cassandra28
The puppy had been told that if she was good she'd get presents from Santa at Christmas time. She lay down and was quiet for a minute or two. It seemed like an age. This had better be worth it!

Model: Jinx

It was a miracle that we got her to sit still for more than half a second.

I did a bit of post production work - I don't have a studio or access to a studio so this was shot on an old white blanket, and I did a bit of tweaking to the levels and contrast to make it whiter.

I'm going to upload this as a postcard (and an actual card if dA activates that option!).

This is wonderful! Do you know what kind of dog this is? My dog (Bud the Dog [link] ) believes they may be related! He as asked my to check for him [he's into genology].

Well, we got her from the RSCPA so it's hard to say! :P They told us she was a "black and tan terrier", which isn't very specific. I've heard lots of theories of what she might be crossed with, and I think that the most common is that she has German Shepherd in her ancestory somewhere. Or maybe Doberman. But she's only little - at five months old she's about the size of an adult toy dog.

Tell Bud I said hi! :)

German shepherd....

Hmm...! :plotting:

She's only terrier size, but I think that she does have some Shepherd somewhere in her ancestry. At least, everyone seems to think so!

She's actually a terrier pup (very little). Though we think she might have some shepherd in her... :)

Oh my god, that's ADORABLE! I am so in love with your puppy! Our cats go crazy at christmas, attacking the decorations. We can't even have a christmas tree because they climb it and wreck the place.

We bought a little tree this year (never had one before) - it's small enough I figure we can stick it on a table and she won't be able to reach it! I hope...!

I think we're going to get a TINY little silver one and put it on top of the 7ft high DVD tower that we THINK is out of the reach of cats...but we'll tape the tree down, just in case!

I suppose one advantage of dogs is that they can't climb. Jinx has only just figured out how to get onto the couch!

Very cute puppy! Yes, it's very difficult to get animals to sit still (sometimes human-animals too!) for any period of time. I'm glad this one did, because this -will- make a really nice Christmas card. You could even do the blue and silver and make it a Hanukkah card! :)

great minds think alike... but I think it maybe almost impossible for my 2 foxies to sit still.. let alone in xmas hats :D

I had that problem. Took about a dozen photos and this is the only one where she was looking at the camera!
