It's not real easy to photograph a black dog without them just showing up as a black blob with totally indistinguishable features.
A little afternoon light coming in a north-facing window will work wonders though.
Mr. Spike is a miniature poodle that is the son of our red poodle, Rosie, that died suddenly two weeks ago. (I wrote about Rosie's death here)
We let our older daughter name him when he was born in February of 2004, and she wanted to name the only boy dog Spike, but always called him Mister Spike. We've long ago gotten into the habit of calling him Mr. Spike too.
He's a sweet and gentle little dog, and this is the best photo I've ever been able to take of him.
