This is Rosie, our West Highland White Terrier cross Maltese. Over the years she's pumped out 20 puppies or so, but is now enjoying retirement.

    Well I guess it's more slithered out, but the imagery brought up by such a word is a bit gross :P

  • David de Groot said:
    Thanks Kane. She needs a clip and a wash, but this is here natural state ;-)
    Indeed, she's pretty good that way.
    Thanks :) She is indeed.

    What a machine. Close to that lady in the states that had 8 kids in one shot.

    Not that hard really, her first litter was 3 puppies, then 5 then 7 then 5 (iirc). The litter of 7 did astound us somewhat, and she was very fat before delivery.
    I heard about the octuplet story, amazing stuff - hell of a way to get a family ;-)

    Very sweet shot David. btw, I would say she earned her retirement!

    So cute!
    And a wonderful shot :)
  • David de Groot said:
    Yeah absolutely :)
    Definitely well deserved :)
    Thanks, she's quite adorable, even if she's getting a little fat these days (how I'm not sure as we don't feed her rubbish).

    What an adorable capture. I don't know if it's post processing or a quality L lens, but your photostream shows images with wonderful sharpness and color reproduction.
    Seen on your photo stream. (?)
  • David de Groot said:
    Mostly L glass actually :) There's some post, but very very little.

    Lovely looking dog, very good composition. The lighting has a pleasant soft feel.

    I think there was patchy cloud Jack - cloud is a great light softener ;-)
