Rework of a previous photo. What a difference the black background makes!
I used the same technique as on this photo, except that I changed the feathering from
1 pixel to 2 pixels, which made a huge difference, believe it or not.

Gracie is another sweet Bloodhound from Southwest Search Dogs, although not as sweet as Jessie or Becca. ;-)

"The devil made me do it!" Generally speaking, I prefer not to dress up dogs, but this isn't my dog, so what the heck? The occasion was the celebration of two of the members in our group (Southwest Search Dogs) kids first birthday party. Some of the other members rigged the shot and thought it would be cute. I thought it would be lame, but, judging by all the comments, I'm definately in the minority. ;o) She does have a really cute expression, though.

This is Rizzoli, who is owned by Terry, and who is a Labrador/Golden Retriever cross, which is popular for service dogs. She is certified in just about every certification offered by SWSD. Her SWSD set is located here. She has a brand new companion, Cache, that Terry picked up the night before and who was also at the party.

Duffy is a Border Collie and at 4 1/2 months is one of Southwest Search Dogs' newest search dogs. This image was captured just after he had done an excellent job on his search training, ranging way out in front of his handler, easily making the find, spending just a second or two at the subjects before coming all the way back to his handler to indicate he had found the subjects, then leading his handler back to the subjects. And what's his reward for such impressive work? A grungy tennis ball. (Actually, he had a bunch of treats, too, but he ate them too fast to photograph.) Best viewed large.

Too bad there's not a category on Flickr called alertness.

If you have an extra 6 1/2 minutes, Windows Media Player, and a high-speed Internet connection, you might like to watch this video that I made of Nikki working (practicing, actually). Notice how she follows the scent path, not necessarily where the subject walked. Also, notice that she is not distracted by other scents or people. This was shot before her surgeries, so she walks a little funny.
