Pretty boy

Pretty boy

OK… I couldn’t resist just one more shot of Pedro. I took over 100 shots(OK, well in felt like 100), trying to get that tail in the shot. It was always moving and I would cut off just the tip almost everytime! Let me give you a little history on Pedro:
He was givin’ up for adoption from his original owner because Pedro wouldn’t hunt. This guy was a beagle breeder and an avid hunter. He had a lot of dogs. Because of this, the guy felt he’d be better off with a loving family. So Pedro was adopted out.
When he first arrived in his new home, he was painfully shy. But over time, he has slowly come out of his shell. I’ve been watching him for a few years and this is the first time he wasn’t afraid of the camera. He has metal bowls for food and water. When ever they bang against each other or the metal stand they are in, it scares him and he runs away. Then he slowly sneaks back up to the bowl for another mouth full and again the noise scares him. So he backs away again. I mercifully moved his bowls off the hardwood floor and onto the carpet. He likes that much better. I might have to video tape this if I have time. It’s kinda funny to watch. 😉 Even with his little neurosis’, he’s a great dog. Very loving and affectionate little guy.
I just love this soft hearted beautiful boy.
