Dog of the Day: Nash the Curly-Coated Retriever

Finally! I’ve been hunting for these guys for ages. They are so awesome: one of the first retriever breeds (along with the flat-coated retrievers), and ridiculous looking, with the squared-off retriever body and the poodle-like coat! Plus they’re super-rare, and it’s always cool to run across a rare breed.

Nash’s dad, it turns out, is one of the founders of a pet supplies company that is based in San Francisco, called Luxury Pets, and Nash may soon be one of the spokesdogs of the company. Go Nash!

(The last three pictures I got from Nash’s dad, although the one with the white background was taken by a professional photographer.)

Yup. Vicious. Evil nasty vicious... cuddly... dog.

The ever-popular 'canine speedbump' pose.

Plaintive gaze. Wonder what he's thinking? (Also, see? I'm not the only one who has trouble bringing out detail on black dogs in the sun!)

Pretty contrast.

All I can say is, whaaaaaat? How did this professional photographer turn Nash BROWN?
