Q: How do I buy more Spotlights? I'm new to the site, and I've actually already bought some, but I've forgotten how to do it!

A: Do you know?

Somewhere around 6 AM our hound, Sophie, begins to stir. She'll land between us in bed to let us know it's time to eat. If I show signs of a lack of enthusiasm in getting up she'll stand over me and begin to paw the covers off me. This always does the trick. Before I get the paper, before I get my coffee, before I go down to the computer and check JPG, she stands by the cabinet door wagging her tail and giving me The Look.

    Welcome to MY morning routine which also includes a Sophie ( a munsterlander) a jack russell and three cats. Nothing gets done until they've had their morning meal! I love those eyes.. how could anyone resist them.

    I love this shot, and even if I dislike dogs so much (They always try to bite me, I guess they know I'm tasty), every representant of this breed I have known were pretty cool.

    Great photo John. I get that look from our Menagerie too.

    We're not sure how old she is Journaliste...she's a rescue. They thought she was about 8 months old when we got her in June of 2003. Someone had dropped her off and simply said she was a "bad dog." They must not have liked her pawing their covers off at 6 AM.

    Perfectly captured! I bet she couldn't believe you were taking the time to get the shot before you fed her! I see Brenda is like me --- stays in bed and lets the husband attend to these early morning matters!

    That begging "save me" look only dogs are capable of... I like your choice of Holga-ish black and white here, and the geometric lines and composition are great too!
