Black and White photo of our Border Collie half drowned in an attempt to rescue a tennis ball.His effort was worth it as many hours since have been enjoyed chasing that self same tennis ball.

Good shot Rhonda, he looks like a nice dog :-)
thanks Matt, he has the most beautiful nature Ive come across..one of those dogs with a memorable personality that will always live with you even after hes gone…a while off yet i hope..hes only 9 mths old…lol : )
thankyou Ryan, I think I caught his personality but Id love to be able to brush off that piece of grass…lol Rhonda : )
You’ve got me waning a border collie next.
lol sunny..I admit they are my weakness..I have two..both so different in personality..Shiloh is always on the job, shes determined, independant and when not on the job (keeping the yard free of birds and aeroplanes) likes to sit with me and hold hands. Jack who is the poser lives for attention, loves hugs, pats, has to be with you, will play ball til he drops, hes a clown with so much character, so expressive…both adorable but opposites.
great eyes captured here!!
Thankyou Angie…just one of those lucky shotsRhonda : )
Is this dog ready for Hollywood or not me thinks! Love border collies…and this shaggy friend has got oodles of character and talent that you have captured so well me thinks!
lol Arcadia..he is definately a poser so would love Hollywood..he has amazing character, he says so much with his mannerisms without a sound..as you can tell I find it hard not to try to capture it…thankyou, Im getting lots of practice thanks to Jack.
thankyou Scott..Im so glad you enjoyed it..hes a fun dog to have around..makes my photographing him easy… Rhonda : )
Aawwww..(with a tear in my eye) this brings back memories of my boy Blackie (a Kelpie) who was part of our family for 16 years. He would fetch a ball or a stick to the point of exhaustion. But as soon as he had his breath back (and capacity to walk) he would be back at it again. Beautiful image Rhonda! : ) Wen x
Awww I can so relate to that..kelpies are so gorgeous..I used to have a red one..Rusty.. who rode my horse with me when i was 16..you just made me remember how much I miss him..its not a wonder they call them mans (&womans) best friend. Jack..pictured is nuts for a ball or stick but I think its more for the huge reward pat he gets when he returns with it…lol thankyou again Wen.. : ) Rhonda xo
what a great image! Love your framing and tonal contrast!
He looks quite pleased with himself LOL
ty Texture :) Im so glad you like this one. He was indeed pleased with himself until he dropped it..lol
Oh wow- what an incredible capture- Rhonda your work is so beautiful!
Thank you again rose :)This is Jack. He is so expressive and such a clown that he provides many photo moments for me. Such a good boy!…lol
