Dog of the Day: Franklin the 13-Week-Old Bernese Mountain Dog Puppy

So it’s probably worth noting that I ran into more than one puppy on the same day I ran into Winston (and Pepper). And that although Franklin here is within a week of the same age as Winston, he’s like six times his size already. It is hard to say which one is cuddlier but I’m going to have to go with “whichever one happens to be in front of me right at the moment.”

He was playing with another dog when I got there, but I didn’t get any good shots of the two of them together. But that’s what the ‘frame’ here is.

Lesson #209 for Adam: it’s not enough to make sure that your subject and your background both aren’t in direct sunlight. You also have to make sure your camera isn’t in direct sunlight. Bah.

    Well, now I am a puddle on the floor. How am I supposed to get to work in this condition ;-/?!?

    It must be hard not to want to hug Franklin all day.

      Seriously. I think it would be easy to get work done, though… you just have to do it with Franklin in your lap.

      • Sandy says:

        I’d have to fight all my co-workers off who would want him in their own lap!!

        • Adam Lang says:

          Well, there is that. But think of the leverage you’d have! There’s an interesting discussion of ‘hard power’ vs ‘soft power’, and there’s no power softer than Franklin.
