Cute dog! Photographically speaking it's a depth of field disaster though.

my intent was to focus on her nose and keep a shallow depth of field

Well, if your subject was the nose you nailed it! The rest of the dog is probably pretty interesting too, but how would we know?

That would have worked for me if you took a macro of the nose & it filled the frame but given the the rest of the dog's face was in photograph - like a human face that was something I would have wanted to see in detail too.

I can't imagine an instance where I'd like a photo of a person's face where only their nose was in focus. :)

^^touche'

I have another shot where her eyes were the focul point and went with a F/4 instead of the F/1.8 this was shot at. I'll post the other one when I get home for critique as well.

Certainly not worthy of being termed a disaster. The shot has some visual interest. You might want to experiment the next time you catch her snoozing....start at f/1.8 and work your way up stop by stop....I suspect around f/3.2 to f/4 you will find a happy compromise.
