#237-365 Polka Dots

Still playing Catch-Up but this one is a treat. I made a new friend last night his name is Paddy and he is just so happy to make new friends. For this theme Sally had offered one of the petticoats that she wears in her "Stageworks" numbers but I prevaricated and said okay if I can't find a Dalmation to photograph, Phew she accepted that and last night as I was posting my abstract post, she yelled "Ron grab your camera there is a Dalmation outside!" While I checked batteries memory cards and the like she ran out and asked Paddy's nice owner if a photo would be okay and this is the result.

It took a while to get the first shots because, golly greeting new friends is a ritual, you have to roll over on their feet and rub hard against their legs and then there are hundreds of Tummy Rubs to enjoy, so once he had quietened down a little it was on with the job at hand, and for me this was the best as it shows the wonderful nature, and smiling face, He was having fun and the walk was till to come, life couldn't get better.

GREAT shot for the theme, Ron! And you've made a new pal in the process.

Ron, that's gotta be the best shot anyone's going to get for this theme. Well, unless someone finds 101 Dalmations together. Must say too that in my view its the best shot on your blog yet. LOVE it!

Oh, it can sometimes be hard to be an photographer, but you had your vision, and this time you managed to make a really nice picture. I dont mean that you dont make nice pictures, but, lucky you that this dog was so photogenique.

I love that Sally is "location scouting" for your shots! She picked a winner here and you captured your new buddie's polka dots (and personality) perfectly!

Simply adorable and such a good take on the theme. It certainly pays to be patient. And making new pals in the process is not bad either :-)

It looks like you made a new friend, Ron. Look at that smile on his face! But why wouldn't he smile after all those belly and paw rubs.
