Hi Monday. Let’s do this! ... Another shot of the adorable @mister_dexterrr from my pet photography lesson with @thegracechon from our Facebook live last Thurs, hosted by @fetchpetcare. This one was shot in full sun using a reflector and the snapseed app. I’m having so much fun putting these tips to use! ❤️ ... #gameface #smilingdog #gracechoninc #fetchpetcare #labsofinsta #rescuedog #seniordog #waggishthebook #labrador #blackdog #lovedogs

To all our wonderful friends and fellow dog lovers who have supported our new book Waggish, when you have a moment I’d be so grateful if you could leave a review on Amazon, Barnes&Noble or other outlet you purchased from! Getting lots of reviews is a huge help to us and will help us spread the joy of smiling dogs as far and wide as possible. Thanks so much! 🙏 ❤️ 🐶 📷 @thegracechon ... #waggishthebook #gracechoninc #smilingdog #happydogs #newbook #frenchbulldog #dogphotography #frenchielove #frenchiesofinstagram #lovedogs
