    Technically it is fine, you might want to crop for composition.

    might be better if the flowery pillow to the right was cropped out

    I just noticed what it is that was bothering me, the back legs are in focus and so is his head, but the middle is out of focus.

    With a shutter speed of 1/10th second there does appear to be some camera shake that is making the image slightly blurry.
    Are you happy with it?

    That's true, how do you see the Exif?

    And I'm kind of happy with it I guess I made the best the situation with bad light and limited time to shoot, but that doesn't mean it's a good photograph, and I don't have the knoweledge to make that call.

    I have Opanda IExif installed on my computer and if the picture has the exif info still imbedded in it I can right click on the image, select Properties and get the exif info.
    Saying whether a picture is good or not is a very subjective thing. There are certain things you'll find in every 'good' photograph (good exposure, good composition, good use of light) but some people will say they like it and some people will say they don't like it...we're all different and have different opinions. That's just how it is.

    Is your photo good? It's not bad and there is room for improvement. Study it. Think about what others have said about it. Learn from it and then take more pictures. Study those pictures and have others give C&C to get different perspectives on it. Understand what is wrong and what is right about each picture you take and then put that knowledge to use the next time you go out shooting. In time you'll take pictures that will get lots of positive feedback. Just understand that if you just got into photography you won't be taking very good pictures right now...but you will.
