Now that is a trusting and loving look.

I think eyes really do talk. Adorable! Best wishes :)

Shadow said...

the eyes say it all. i can stare into my pups eyes and get lost in their total adoring unconditional love.

napaboaniya said...

The eyes say everything. As much as they're thankful for a good owner. We're just as thankful for the best friend in them.
My dog loves me just as much even during my dysfunctional days!!! *LOL*

Eaton Bennett said...

Awwww, he's just asking to be petted with those big sweet eyes.

I know that look and I melt every time. We have rescued 5 shihtzu's. We kept 2 and found homes for the others. Dogs are the best!

Have a fun weekend. After this week I am ready for some relaxation and fun.

Aileni said...

I don't know how much longer we can go without a dog. It will be a rescue, I expect.

ancient one said...

We have so much to be thankful for... you can see the thankfulness in the dogs eyes... great post!

Sandy said...

Now, that's the look of love...
Mine's up, too.

What a great capture!! Anyone who says that dogs don't smile.. just isn't paying attention. I've never seen a dog more happy.

Teena in Toronto said...

What a gorgeous dog!

I played too :)

Maureen Hayes said...

There's a reason why they call em "man's best friend!" - a wonderful representation of thankfulness!

Mine is up at:

Another great image, Mojo, and it looks like you had a great model to work with. Doesn't it make photography so much fun when you have such great subjects?

PastorMac's Ann said...

I'm always amazed at the ability of a dog to smile.

Wonderful choice for our "thankful theme" this week!

David said...

i like the juxtaposition of dog / human hand. like he is inhaling or exhaling her.

aliceaudrey said...

I have a dog in my PhotoHunt today, too, but he's just sitting off to the side.

Shinade said...

Oh my those eyes and that face really get you. Great work Mojo.

A little off topic here but I didn't realize that Suzanne and you were friends too.

Of course I only knew her through her blog and many, many exchanges....but, I do miss her so.

I hope you are having a great weekend!!:-)

Tarolino said...

That certainly is a thankful gaze if I ever saw one. Lovely pic.

I too have an award for you in my blog.

Shinade said...

I just read your comment Mojo...oh me too..me too my friend.

Photo Cache said...

Who wouldn't be thankful with a loyal companion? Enjoy the weekend.

Liz said...

This shot says just about everything you need to know about why I have a dog! (a rottie mix too)

The Quintessential Magpie said...

I'm a sucker for a dog every single time. I miss mine more than I can say. Loved this! Love his scarf, too. He's definitely NOT disposable! :-)

Marites said...

Man's best friend is always almost more loyal than man himself:) That's a very trusting look he is giving.
