I Heart Faces Photo Challenge: Pet Faces


This week's theme over at I Heart Faces is pets. I took this photo 2 weeks ago in our first big snowfall. This is my dog Minty who is a greyhound cross i.e. a lurcher. He is a bit smaller and a bit stockier than a regular greyhound but he has all the typical greyhound characteristics.

He was a rescue dog and has never raced but he runs in incredibly accurate circuits, even though he only has one eye! You can see in the photo the two lines in front of him where he has run round once already and he literally follows the same circuit round and round. He is FAST, you really wouldn't want to be in the way of his circuit! He doesn't need long walks, just his burst of exercise each day and he's happy.

He loves the snow, gets very excited and runs faster than ever! Check out all the other gorgeous pets over at I Heart Faces!

I love greyhounds (don't have one LOL but often visit them at the greyhound rescue). I clicked on your picture just to get a "fix" LOL. GREAT Photo!

I instantly was smitten with this because I have IGGIES... the greyhound's little cousins. Beautiful shot. I know my guys dislike snow immensly and are always running to camera as if to say "Mommy, it's cold, let me be held!"

I have seen that expression on so many Greyhound faces, but it's so hard to capture with a camera! Minty looks awesome out there running. That's a great shot!

Great capture - is that from your fancy new DSLR? :)

It was indeed using the DSLR, I'm just starting to get my head around all the functions!
