  1. Superb close up in the large photo and I like how the dogs feet (paws) are crossed in the smaller image. Two great photos for theme day.

  4. This brings back memories. I so remember the feel (and smell) of our Annie's feet. Big and clutzy. Swimming in the lake with her you made damn sure you didn't get in front of her else get seriously scratched.

  26. I love to smell any dog's foot. That smell, to me, is like smelling a leather saddle on a riding horse. Wow.

  31. Hi Jilly, dogs do make great models (and friends). Unlike some commenters, I'm not a fan of dog paw smell or people's feet for that matter! :)

  36. AHHH, i like the second photo best with the two crossed paws. the first photo makes me think I should pull a thorn out of his paw. and in arizona I have pulled many cactus spines from the paws of dogs.
