Nothing special but I had to take new pictures of Ben so that Poodletalk can have an article on him (adoption) in a newspaper. If you had to pick one , wich one would it be ?

Frenchy

Frenchy,I too say the second one,he is so sweet,beautiful colour...you have no idea how much I wish I could take him:sad:
Hopefully some wonderful person will come along and fall in love,but until then,he is safe and happy with you,not in a cage at the shelter.
Poodletalk is a great girl isn't she:thumbs up

I tried to get a pic of him with the Cuz in his mouth but he always moves / walks around with it :laughing:

So far it's the second pic , Jiorji choosed the third one (right?)

Oh and yes , Jiorji , I would need you to take pics of ALL my foster :thumbs up

If it gets into the newspaper, I think it should be the first post 3RD picture.
It's the closest you see of his face. The other shots are cute, but people need to see the face.

I like the picture on the right from the first post. I like them all, but he looks happiest there. He's such a sweet looking dog.

poodletalk you are amazing to help Ben out like this.

If you want I can crop one of the pictures to give you a nice close up of his face (if Frenchy can e-mail me the original photo):pawprint:

I pick the second one too - shows his tail and he has a really cute look on his face!

Thanks for the complaiments everyone. I already submitted Ben's picture to another newspaper about a month ago. Frenchy did get phone calls for him but the families weren't fits.

We will try with another paper so maybe we will be lucky this time and get the right family.

This newspaper I am going to try is very picky when it comes to pictures. The pictures,need to be big, clear and centered. If the newspaper doesn't like the picture, they won't submit the article.

I'm used to dealing with magazines. They are pretty picky too:frustrated: anyways, I can "modify" a picture a bit to make it fit pretty much any specifications they have, as long as it's a decent photo to begin with. Want me to give it a try?? You could have a couple for them to choose from then...

The last picture doesn't have as much contrast as the second one... this is sometimes important if you are going to B&W

It would be great fun sometime if all of us in Quebec with goldens to gather and have a pic made!! But also other doggies of course in another picture!

I like the 3rd picture in the first post, and 2nd picture in the 2nd post.

Otter and Poodletalk, thank you ! Is everything alright Poodletalk ? Do you want me to take a head shot instead ?

Frenchy
November 25th, 2007, 03:03 PM
I dreamed about Ben getting adopted last night , I was very sad to let him go. :sad:

Of course you are sweety. Ben is a dear, dear boy. But... just imagine how happy you will be to make someone happy by gifting him to them.

Declan has been such a gift to me because of the Rescue who gave him up.

Frenchy
November 25th, 2007, 03:21 PM
I know M3X :sad: the older ones who usually take more time to get adopted , I get more attach and more worried about their future homes. :yell: I think I'm becoming a wuss. :frustrated:

November 25th, 2007, 03:52 PM
It's possible you are becoming very attached to Ben ~ who in their right mind would't be?

But look at how happy Otter is with Molly....

Frenchy

Yes but otter can't adopt a second one :D

Ben will find a wonderful home thanks to you, Frenchy. :grouphug: Even if it turns out he's destined to stay at Chez Frenchy forever. :o I don't know how you do it even when they find forever homes quickly--we were pretty much sure Grace was staying after Day 1...we just didn't talk about it till Day 3... :o

I like the third one in the first set, too, btw, in case you're still looking for opinions. :D

:lovestruck: Ben

I won't tell Ben you think he's a girl :D Ben is 83 lbs , so he's bigger than Bailey but smaller than Sam. IMO he's average. :cloud9:
