Ponkie, our family dog, striking a regal pose while out on the park.
I gotta hand it to the shi tzus, though. For a small dog breed, they're rather quiet, not like other small dogs that yip and yap like they're on caffeine. (If you're asking, yes, I am referencing the Far Side cartoon.)
These pictures were in fact harder to take than they look. Ponkie doesn't sit or stand still for very long, as he's all excited to be out in the park, so he's sniffing this way and that. There were a couple of poses I was really hoping he'd fall into, but I suppose when it comes to photographing animals, you just have to take what you can get.
