Spike by Edward Denyer

Canvas Prints

Available to buy on…

Spike, the Jack Russell I took in as a stray,
turned out to be the best dog I ever owned.
I used to be a BIG dog man until I had this
little fellow. Here is the biggest dog I have
ever known. Loyal to the core to me and my
family. Someone jumped one of daughters
when she was walking him and he wished he
hadn’t afterwards. Said he did it for a joke –
Spike didn’t see the funny side of it!!
If you’re wondering what he is so intent on looking
at, when I stood up from taking this I noticed there
was a big black dog heading our way.
Is that doggy smile on his face?

Camera: Olympus Om707 – 28-80mm Sigma lens,

    I am sure that dogs smile…so I am sure that is a smile on his face! My sister has a Jack Russell, and he is full of personality. I love this shot…just great!
