We recently enjoyed receiving a dozen of puppies form our dog Nougat. I picked up an A77II to replace my old A900 to capture these lovely creatures. This seemed to me a nice occasion to share them here after having been absent for quite a while.

Good to see you back Dirk and enjoy your new toy (the A77ii). Nice shots of the puppies. They're high on the "cute-o-meter". The white spots (like Chanel and Nera) give them something extra.

Thanks Fred and Pieter, I'll be posting some more soon. The white spots are a kind of "breed anomalie" and do not apply for high scores at shows. Nice to read that it's adding to the loveliness.

The MinO 50/3.5 turned out to be a very nice portrait lens for these size of puppies :

awww they are so, sooo adorable!!!
don't know a thing about the Standard for this breed -of course-, but also IMHO the freckles, stripes, spots and other decorations add greatly to the uber cuteness! will you introduce their ma to us?

I see they have their very own (teddy)bear?


forgive me for ventilating something?
no offense!!! (!!!!!). nowadays I only know 1 dog with a plushie-less life.





g.friend Kyra used to be a major consumer. ;) spoiled! got to kill multiple plushies per week. she beheaded, decapitated them, ripped their foamy intestines out, teared them to pieces, pulled their plastic eyes out, etc. (which worried me, to be honest, having certain ideas what should(n't) be on a dog's menu? + visions about risks? ).   






my big (weighs 57 kilograms) friend Max treats his stuffed toys nicely. he likes to drag them around, sleeps with them, and loves the lullaby-music box in 1 of this toys. ;) accidents occur, but only accidentally. so far, so good?

but one day we accompanied him to the forest. I also brought my camera, hoping he'd pose for me () amidst a bubble bath, generated by my newly acquired Trioplan 100.
he didn't have time to pose, running around, inspecting bushes and all there was to inspect, disappearing from time to time. but then he came out of a shrub, carrying something that looked like a plushie, but was a rabbit. used to be a rabbit, I could see it had -just- passed away. the dog was very happy with his new toy! it took quite some time to catch him, then lots of persuasion to convince him to finally let go of it.





I'm convinced the dog killed the rabbit, but didn't murder it. he 'just' grabbed it as he would grab any of the toys he's familiar with. I could feel -and hear!- the crushed and broken -rattling- ribs.      
it hurts to say that in the end the dog presumably did the rabbit a favour.






(since the real murderer is the rabbit's former 'owner'! rabbits are animals of prey. no domestic rabbit will enjoy 'its freedom', setting a domestic rabbit free is a recipe for death. and beyond cruel, only very few will survive. by the looks of it, it hadn't been there long and wasn't well looked after. the only comforting idea is that, as animals of prey, they do have a mechanism that brings them into shock rather quickly).


covered in slobber
(if you think this to be appalling- I'm even more appalled than you?
took those pics with the intention to hopefully be able to show people why they shouldn't set rabbits 'free'. and therefore regret I didn't make a real effort to come up with 'decent' pics).





< All the world will be your enemy, Prince with a Thousand Enemies, and whenever they catch you, they will kill you. But first they must catch you, digger, listener, runner, prince with the swift warning.
Be cunning and full of tricks and your people shall never be destroyed. >
~Richard Adams - Watership Down






as for dog Max- pretty sure he wouldn't have grabbed the rabbit if he wouldn't have been used to (grabbing) stuffed toys. and therefore should be kept away from all sorts of smaller pets. (surprisingly, but fact-) listening to his human is not one of his virtues. ;) at the age of 7, he's still very playful, enthousiastic and uncivilized. I wouldn't be surprised if he would knock over small children to nick their stuffed toys. no harm intended, of course. during the years that followed he has done it again. grabbed thus killed another rabbit.

(no offense?!! only, hopefully, some food for thought?)

Thanks! Yes I know, it's hard to resist the temptation to overflow you with tons of pics.

Here's mom, called Nougat :


The breed is Beauceron, French shepherd dog. The breed has 2 variants : Black-and-Tan and Arlequin.
Our Nougat is a typical Black-and-Tan lady. We mated her with a Arlequin, which has both black-and-tan as grey colours.This results in puppies of both variants.
In the nest we had 12 puppies, 3 Black-and-Tan and 9 Arlequin. It can be the opposite as well!

BTW I live in the countryside, and our dogs regularly chase wild hares, which are very common and numerous here. While the dogs are in very good condition, the manage to catch a hare every now and then. They bring it home and eat all of it. That's nature IMO.
