Max the Dog 139 by hfpierson Max the Dog 139 by hfpierson
There was another shot from the Christmas card session of Max by himself that I thought was very special. Bud is the kind of dog that would probably be fine on his own in the wild, but Max survives strickly on the kindness of others. To this end, he has a tool box full of pathetic looks and cute gestures that can melt any heart. This was a warm up shot for a lighting check, and Max is putting on his best "why don't you love me face" in an effort to skip the costume and go right to the reward at the end.

He is so beautiful, I had a Border collie for 17years Her name was Gypsy. She had the nicest temprement and was always faithful. Old age became her and we in the end had to be cruel to be kind, it was the WORST day of my life. That was about ten years on now and this photo brings back lovely memories ...thank you
