    What kind of dog is that? It reminds me of Peanut.

    Thanks for your replies everyone! Black & white is definately one of my favourite photo styles. The first 3 pics are my purebred Chihuahua, and the last one is my Jack Russell x Maltese Terrier.

    My Chihuahua, Abby, definately doesn't fit into the Chi stereotype. Everyone at our vet (who are big dog fans) now want chihuahuas! :D Abby is really gorgeous, but I find it hard to take photos of her because she's scared of cameras, and she goes extrememly shy, and won't stay still! :p

    I also love potography and think you have done a superb job. Potography is a form of art, and you definitely have an eye for it. You should pursue it as profession. What type of camera are you using? The pictures are very clear and you have captured the sole of the subjects. I feel as if they are right here with me.

    Keep up the good work ....Good luck.

    Thank you very much! :) The camera I used to take those photos is a Casio Exilim Zoom Ex-z55 (it's 5 megapixles). Some of my family are really into photography, so we also have more professional cameras like Nikon and Canon SLRs, but I hardly ever use them... since I don't really know how to! :p Thanks again!

    Thank you! :) I love taking 'artistic' shots, I think it sets them apart from the everyday 'happy snaps'.
