Hi Dick, Love this little pup taking a swim. He or she is very cute! I like the way you have an expanse of ocean in the shot. It shows just how much this little fellow has to swim. The angle, lighting and depth of field are all great! Nice Job My Friend! :o) Nancy

This is such an adorable picture of this equally adorable dog doggy paddling!
The clear water allows to see the dog even more which really helps to see more of him swimming!
Thank you for sharing!

Looks great! Not only is the dog super cute, but its an excellent shot of him. As with some of your other photos, I like the lighting in this.

What a cute shot of the dog swimming in possibly shark infested waters! How crystal clear all was and the seemingly endless water to the horizon. Great shot and really cool dog! Love it!

Comment from Renate-Bertodi


I usually avoid ahhhhh children, wives and pets photos, as one cannot be critical about them, However you have added a multitude of features to this photo which make it a review possibility. I love the clear view of the shallow water, is the dog running over the sand beneath or swimming in shallow waters? so well shown. I wish there had been just slightly more above the horizon, which turns it into 'a picture of our dog', into an action picture which speaks of your environment, but we can just see the startling blue sky, which leaves and interesting strip of blue across the sea and land in the distance and what looks like two humans, somehow perched there. Because of the cut off,I was going to give this slightly less than your usual mark high score, but have relented because of the clarity of the sand beneath the waves.

Comment from Jack Moore


I was just wondering if you were giving swimming lessons, it seems like I see everybody swimming at one time or another and now you have the dogs doing it (LOL). I guess you could say I am jealous because the closest water to me is a couple of hours away, there is a creek beside the house but it is not deep enough except for the cows to get a drink of water. Once again thanks for sharing and save me one of those lessons. JackJr.

    I can't float Jack but I can swim for two minutes then start to submerge!
Comment from Envision


The cuteness factor of this image is off the charts! Not only is the pup cute because he's swimming but he looks like he is smiling about it! The light is a tad harsh on his fur, other than his face, but I really like the look and texture of the water.

Beautiful clear shot of the shallow beach water here. The pup looks to be enjoying a cool dip. This is a very calming photo. I would have liked to see a bit more of the skyline and the blue reflection on the water.
