Now, for the handsome puppers!

I wanted a new camera because most of the pictures I take are of the dogs. And most of the fun picture opportunities are through the various classes and clubs that we attend. We get so many dogs together for play dates or even just socializing at classes, that I would love to have some pics of the boys with their buddies. But my old CyberShot just didn't want to take a decent picture indoors. The large buildings that we use for classes and gatherings were little CyberShot's worst nightmare!

The "Big Test" for my new Canon was this afternoon at Hub City class. We had an hour for working club dogs before the public classes started up, so I got a couple of "working" pictures and a couple of "social" pictures. All things considering (ie. big empty room with dim lighting full of quickly moving puppers), it performed pretty well!

Sasha heeling so nicely.

More pretty Sasha. She's so attentive!

Handsome Harley.

Tetley was being so goofy, trying to cuddle up with Harley.
