Since Beau seems to have been the star of yesterday's photograph, I figured that I better give everyone a better look. Here he is in his winter garb (which he doesn't like at all!). Tomorrow the Oregon Coast series resumes.

Where's Beau...all I see is snow and a striped sweater...just kidding. He's a real cutie.

Beau certainly is well groomed. The good thing is you guys have him wearing a sweater to keep him warm in the snow whereas just dressing up a dog like a doll is for ... well, you know (and not for the dog's benefit either) :)

I don't know if you intended it or not but I find the contrast in colours and the blue cast in the snow all coordinate -- and I mean that in a nice way.

Shirin Moosavi from Tehran, Iran

This is such a beautiful outfit!
I always wonder, why pets rely so much on this kind of clothing while for example street cats can perfectly survive without them.
Anyhow, this IS a gorgeous outfit again! :-)

14 Feb 2009 5:40pm

@Shirin Moosavi: He hasn't worn a sweater all this winter and has been just fine!

Anthony Lambert from Bielefeld, Germany

very cute and cuddly !!

Soo sweet...but don´t tell him. He may be embarrassed;)

14 Feb 2009 7:06pm

@Ninni: Beau does not do embarrassed!!

Nacho from Salem, OR, United States

Jack, what an adorable doggie. And I've been enjoying your coast series! Do keep it up. I have to get there soon! Thanks again!

14 Feb 2009 7:47pm

@Nacho: Thanks, Nacho. In my opinion, you are one of the top two or three photographers that I have come across in aminus3.

dogilicious from Millerstown, PA, United States

The sweater is a must! Otherwise you would lose him in the snow!

Totally cute!

Toni from Eastern Washington, United States

Beau is a cutie, Jack. Buster, my Boston, had a sweater for the snowy days, because his hair is so short and he would get so cold outside. The first sweater he destroyed in about five minutes. I sewed it back up and made him wear it anyway! Ha!

akarui from Kagoshima, Japan

There is sometimes problems of white balance with snow. You could try to correct the blue cast in post processing. Beautiful dog and name.

15 Feb 2009 2:31am

@akarui: Thanks for bringing that to my attention. I was a little too lazy. Take a look at it now.

baobab from Cambridge, United States

judging by his expression, Beau thinks his own fur is far more stylish than this winter garb! ;-)
