    1 - would love to see both eyes in focus
    2 - would love to get that hand out of the shot.... it's just kind of hanging there
    3 - seems the shot is out of focus or the victim of camera shake
    4 - again... would love to see his eyes in focus rather than his nose.

    Overall decent shots and adorable pup!

    Cute puppy, although remember in animal shots the eyes should always be in focus.

    Funny, but in a good way, looking pup. Very cute. I agree with everything already said on the pics.

    Thank you all very much! Does anyone have suggestions on which lenses, apertures, shutter speeds, and all that stuff to take great portraits of animals while they are moving? This little guy doesn't like to sit still haha.

    The dog is a perfect 10! Soooo cute.

    The last one is my favorite, but they all have focus issues. How low was your shutter speed? On the close ups, it would be nice to have both the nose and the eyes in focus.

    Looks like they were all shot at 1/80.

    Tell you what.. Send the dog to me, I'll try different lenses on it and let you know how I like them.. I'll be sure to send the dog back when I'm done.. Wink wink.

    Your 50mm lens would be best it looks as though you are already using it though. Bump up your ISO and try a smaller aperture in the 2.2 or whatever range. You should get enough light for a good shot and get more of the pup in focus.
