Here's my boy Pokie stretching out on the couch.

There was a 580 and 430 triggered behind him on the top of the couch and I used a 10-20mm whilst lying on the floor.

I look forward to hearing what you think.

Is Pokie a Greyhound? My family resuced one a while back and this is her position on the couch 90% of the time.

Thanks. His eyes are that dark so it's unnatural to fill light them any further. Now my Lab, he's got incredibly bright colours in his eyes. Perhaps next time a bouce card would be the way to go.

VE: Pokie is a GAP grey (Greyhound Adoption Program) so he's an ex racer. The laziest animal on the planet I reckon. ;)

An unusual pose for a GAP hound. They tend to lie on their backs on the settee with their legs in the air.

It's not for nothing they call them the 40mph couch potato overhere.

Love the shot. If I'm nitpicking, the paws especially and couch are too bright an distract from the wonderful long facial expression.

We adopted ours from Greysave.org, she sleeps like 22 hours a day. But boy oh boy can she run.
