I ended up home with the dogs yesterday, and decided to do a few portraits. Hope you enjoy them.

The first image lacks a subject of interest, in my opinion, because there's not much happening there. The other two images are so much better, with the dogs enjoying your piano skills and playing a board game with you.

#2 is GREAT! Love the dogs' attention to what you're doing. Good framing, good story, like everything about it! Even your LP and Marshall amp in the BG!

Great work I like them all for different reasons. Having just tried to take pictures with my dogs yesterday I am well aware of the challenges animals present.

I like all three photos. I guess you need to have dogs to understand #1.

Thanks for the comments. I used a lot of treats getting these photos. The first two were single exposures, but the third is a composite of three shots - one for each dog, and one for me.

Number two is great, and I love the black dogs behavior in the first one. Dogs are so special, and you did a great job.

I think these tell a story. It's like #1 starts out by asking, "What are we going to do today?". Then #2 and #3 speak for themselves. Great job!
