I have had more comments about this picture that any other I can remember in a long time. It seems people find this picture adorable, irresistible and cute.
It is hard telling who was more scared, the pit bull or me. The man who rescued the dog and the puppies warned me the pit bull was very protective and to keep my distance. You don’t have to tell me twice. I took the picture with a telephoto lens and always had my escape route to the door in sight.
I am amazed from the editor of the paper down to readers in the street find the picture amazing and ask what special technique I used to create the puppy portrait. It’s a mystery to me why it has such appeal, I am thankful I just didn’t wind up a chew toy.
