My dog, Caesar


Been spending a lot of time on here!

At the back of our house is a small forest, and some of the trees have lots of squirrels in who seem to enjoy teasing our dog, Caesar (a white German shepherd). He's a nosey dog at the best of times but does enjoy watching the squirrels.

Beautiful dog! I have a friend who has the same dog as you. His name is Casper
Caesar rarely does as he is told and wouldn't sit still in a studio. He's incorrigible. You have to catch him while he is distracted like here:

Decided to try and get on to Caesar's level. Lying on the floor is to Caesar an invitation either to play or a facial bath. He has been known to lick the front element of the lens. On this occasion I waited for him to get used to me lying on the floor before taking the shots.

The other day he did a reasonable impression of a lion. This time he is doing an impression of a sphinx:

He looks incredibly sad, but that's because concrete is being laid on our patio and we don't want him running in it so he wasn't allowed to run around in the garden.

Both shots:

One thing that Caesar likes more than running around in the garden is cheese. My father in law and I will sometimes enjoy some good cheese with a drop of carefully decanted port. Caesar loves cheese so much that he will sit and drool and plead until he gets some. Here I think he thinks he is Oliver asking for more!

Thank you!
Spent some time in the garden with Caesar in the sun this afternoon. We have a steep hill in our back garden so it didn't take long for him to take a break from his running around. I used spot metering, even so they were slightly underexposed so add a little more exposure and adjusted contrast and saturation in CS5

Caesar is a very expressive dog, especially when he really wants to run around in the garden when he isn't allowed:

Caesar is so used to me grabbing my camera when I take him up to the steep garden at the back of our house, that I can't pick up my camera without him thinking it's time to have a run about! A few from the last few days.

Caesar does his best to look cute at all times and still does the puppy twist of the head: (all taken with EF 24 - 70L)

5. My biggest disappointment from yesterday - caught the shot, missed focus as I had on one shot mode rather than servo. Pity
