I took about 120 or so pictures of Mel at the dog park the other day, and out of all of them I ended up with 5 decent ones.
I had the camera on burst mode, so most of the pictures were just 3 shot sequences of Mel in various stages of looking up, down, to the side, away from me, taking off to check something out or trying to leave nose prints on the lens.
Mel's a very sweet and gentle dog who will absolutely soak up as much love and attention as you want to give to her. She's pretty shy around new people, but it's nothing that a few cookies and treats can't break through. Once she's accepted you though, she'll stick to you like white on rice. She gets along great with other dogs and hasn't had any issues with any of the dogs she's met at the dog park. She knows sit, and is trying to learn down but could still use some obedience work. Mel gets pretty hyped when she sees the leash coming out (because it means she gets to go outside!). She likes to run and chase things (especially bugs), but isn't what I would consider a highly active dog. She's pretty happy just finding a spot at your feet and gnawing on a Nylabone.
How can you say no to a face like this?
