Many of us derive a great deal of pleasure from our pets. I've seen a few images here and there of pets, but would love to see you fill this thread with your images of your beloved pets.

If you haven't yet taken any images, I think this would be a good Winter "assignment"! I will honor my own request, and will set up some shots of my various pets.

In the meantime, here is a "memorial" image of a dog I owned, called Smiling Fluffy. You can see why the name stuck!



See that purple hat? Well, it's actually black...the image was taken with the Leica M8. Just kidding! Wink

Yes, I have a print on the wall of her smiling face that fills the frame. I will release the print from the frame and scan it.

So Attila, how about some bird shots? Wink

I love this idea!! Here are a few. IQ is kinda crap but oh well. We start with the "real dog" in a few days I will post the little guys. This is Liza Louise Corzine. She is about 10YO (adoption as adult so not sure). Smart as can be and just as sweet.

Her majesty in B+W this was one of my first with the 40D
Planar 50 f1.4 A bit blown out but here we go

Thank you for seeing this Attila. She is a really amazing soul. Her eyes are her language and she speaks only joy. After many years of neglect from her other family (they had no time for her). It is really nice to have her "wake up" and become one of our family. I can not even begin to tell everyone how bright and fun this one is. Such a blessing for us really. Smile Liza comes to work with me every day. The happiness she brings to us is not something that can be measured. Very Happy

Oh, this is a very common variant of the European cat. Those that have three colours, such as Melissa and your kittie, are always females. Those that only have two colours, such as Gandalf, can be both males or females, but usually are males.

Gandalf is indeed male, but the grey part has multiple colours in it (including sort of pale tan stripey bits).

Great shot; its amazing how big their mouths get when they do that.

Are you sure it's different colours, and not different shades of the same colour?
Because all cat books I have, and my veterinary as well, say that for genetical reasons, all three-coloured cats can only be females.
