Doggy Delight

I have just found what I think is going to be my favourite sequence of shots from my shoot on Avon Beach yesterday. (Its one that all dog owners will recognise)

I spotted this pretty little King Charles Spaniel rooting about on the beach and watched as it came across something that was very much to its liking, followed shortly by frantic yells of "stop it!" from its owner

So needless to say I was recording it all and have selected a few frames which I hope will bring a smile on this grey and miserable day

All these shots from Avon Beach have been sequential shooting with SAF at 6fps with Sequential IS Off (so active)

Shot with ISO800, crops from full frame to around 30% of frame, shutter speed 1/1600th sec +/- and focal length from 200 - 300mm (I was shooting some other stuff in between sequences) All wide open


What's that smell?




Oh look, a rotting fish head



Eau de Poisson - just what a Dog needs



Tastes good!

My Daughter has a Cavalier like this, they like nothing more than a good roll on a dead fish!

Re: Doggy Delight

Classic isn't it David, our son's Labrador prefers fox poo and will travel great distances to find the best quality

I'm sure I don't know what you mean Dave (I hope you weren't disappointed )

Re: Doggy Delight

That series made me smile but I'm guessing from experience the owner did not appreciate the smell in the car when he took him back!

Re: Doggy Delight

A nice sequence….the smell can stay on a dog's coat for days…..sometimes only a bath will get rid of it; why do dogs do that?

Re: Doggy Delight

Ahh! Guess who was driving home with all the car windows open?
Been there. Fox poo has got to be the worst - it has a certain pungency and tenacity that is hard to describe and even harder to stomach.

Usually because their owner has just bathed them and got rid of their personal "doggie smell" so they need to top it up?

With my son's Lab its fox poo, with a lovely Dalmatian I was friendly with many years ago it was green pond slime (likewise with my in-laws Westie)

I get the impression that each breed has its own preference, Pam showed a King Charles owning friend of ours these pics and she said that hers also loved rotten fish as its "perfume" of choice whenever they were on the beach

(could be a business opportunity there for someone, "Eau de Chien" )

Re: Doggy Delight

Brian, WoW ! What a series ... Mr. Huggy Henry always rolls in Fox Poo and that reeks far worse than a rotting Fish Head I think

Great compositions and sharp images of a pretty little KCS

A great idea for a cottage industry, but I don't think I would want to produce the rotting fish fragrance in my kitchen!



PS Great pics of your dog.

Re: Doggy Delight

Brilliant, I can just feel the owners sinking feeling and incredible frustration. I used to have a long haired thick coated dog that loved fox pooh, and the smell used to linger for days no matter how thoroughly I washed his coat, I later found that dettox does the job though!
