    1. Hi Kristina,

      A photo of your dog or dogs are best in a .jpg format, and hopefully high resolution ( sized 600 x ____ ?) for a feature for one of my Photo Friday posts. I’ll notify you when it is up.

      Photo Friday posts are humorous, arresting or fun dog photos.

      Please include how you wish to state your photo credit and link to your blog.

      Thanks very much,


      Deborah Taylor-French
