This is why I have great difficulty photographing my own dogs. The minute I appear with a camera the horde descends on me and in an effort to keep the lens free of smears from little tongues I usually have to stand upright so the dogs always end up having short legs and big heads as I click looking down on them. It's quite difficult to take a solo shot as someone always homes in on the subject! Here I tried sitting on a chair but ended up with Mo on my lap.
Little Roley was taken, alone, into the living room in an attempt to get this elusive shot but he ended up down on my level on the carpet.
He was still for a moment, but I think I moved!
