Shepherd's ears always do it for me, especially the 'meet in the middle' type! My first love breed and, even though we're unlikely to have any more, still my favourite.

Good choice! Keep them coming.

Oh Sophie, we believe you! We can see the adult in the pup there in that expression - lovely xx

Jeanne said...

As I recall, they do that while their still learning to control their too-big-for-their-heads ears. I love your pictures!

Sharon said...

You have a beautiful & sweet face Sophie:)

When I was young I read Albert Payson Triune’s books. I remember him writing about the "look of eagles" regarding the collies. I think the GSD's have that look, and certainly Sophie does. I also think that what makes a German Shepherd stand out from the rest of the dog world is their integrity; you can see that in Sophie’s eyes, also. Just gorgeous!!! Sophie’s eyes and your ability to capture the look...

I really love your writing style and how you use animals to teach life lessons.
I referenced this site in my most recent post, hope that is ok, I think we all can learn so much from what you share and by learning to make these observations ourselves.

Wonderful, just wonderful.

Oh - those ears. They say it all.

What an adorable dog and the words do her justice.

Ah, makes me remember fondly the days when i waited, not always so patiently, for my shepherd pups' ears to get themselves sorted out. I must confess to a bit a panic the first time around.

I adore these photos, you really capture their personalities and their sweet souls.

This pup's eyes tell so much. And I love his big nose.

Bruce said...

Don't roar too loud Sophie...you might scare me!

Aw, and ofcourse since German Shepherds are my number one breed of choice, I must comment, that Sophie is adorbale, and you captured her perfectly in these photos.

Great name Too!!

I see her soul and I simply want to reach out and touch her, confirming that we are friends.

Shes a beautiful dog!

Claire said...

Tatersmama said...

The look in her eyes says it all and I want to just bury my nose in her neck and sniff!
(did I just say that? I never admitted that before *blushing*)
