Could you please post a larger version of this?

From that size all I can tell is that the background hurts my eyes lol

AmandaMarie is right it would be helpful to see a larger version. From this small one I'd say its overexposed a bit and there are some distracting background elements. The focus appears to be sharp and I like the fact that you got down to your animals level to photograph it. Great looking dog by the way. You've got to love "mans best friend". Jeff

I echo his sentiments.

Do you have any version of photoshop or another editing program?

There should be a "save for web" option.

The shot may be focused at the nose, and not the eyes, which might be part of the issue of the coat - but yes, the background is too much. Try again!

I think the flash is too harsh, and the background should be a little further behind the dog, while using a larger aperture will help to blur it a bit. This would help cut down on the distracting nature of it.

It also looks like you missed focus as Scott said.
