    It's just because the pop up flash is so close to the lens that the light reflects off of the retina and causes the red eye. It's always worse for animal photography. For now just don't use the flash on the dog, but the long term solution would be to buy a flash like any of the SB line or a much less expensive Vivitar because they move the light up away from the lens and the problem is a lot less likely.

    Actually, isn't the red eye the strange one? I thought with animals, the redeye problem is actually a green/gray/blue'ish eye problem.

    I think this is the first time I've seen a photo of an animal with redeye.

    I wish I was paying attention to the radio. They discussed dogs two different eye reflection colours just a few days ago. There was a technical reason but I haven't the faintest what it is.
