Pictures of Izzy

I just wanted to post some pictures of Izzy. It's so hard to get good pictures of a black dog. I have about 100 pictures and these are the best I could get. She went for her first professionally grooming session on Tuesday. The last picture is her after the groomer. I had her belly shaved (it was like a rug with all the mats). I'm hoping this will help while she's blowing her coat. She did well at the groomers. I was a little worried because she's never been to a groomer (she's 11 months old), I always do it myself. I was so nervous leaving her, it felt like the day I put my son on the bus to go to Kindergarten. I'm grateful my friend (who has a havanese and recommended the groomer) had time to spend with me. We went for a nice walk and had a great chat.

Izzy is beautiful!!!! She's black? She looks a little brown to me, but then again, it's probably the flash. She is just gorgeous!

I thought she was brown too. Black or brown she is gorgeous.

Peace, Love & Havanese

She is stunning!! Your groomer did a fabulous job, she still looks 100 percent Havanese!

IMHO, it's best to photograph people and animals without a flash, in enough light where you won't have to use one, but not in the bright sun...usually later in the afternoon works really well. You can search for Melissa's thread about photography tips. I do realize it's more difficult to photograph black Havs, but if you are outside using natural light, with a decent camera you'll find you have better luck. If you need to switch your settings on your camera so the flash doesn't automatically go off, I recommend this.

Talking Black or Brown that is the question?? HeHe!!!!

I always consider her black but her face is definitely changing colors. I do tend to post pictures that have alot of light reflecting on her so you can actually see her features. I think her face is silvering. Her body is black (or maybe havana brown). I'm not sure if this is from the sun this summer because her roots are black. It sure is fun tyring to figure out what she'll actually be. She defintiely has black in her ancestry (and was supposed to not have the fading gene) we'll just have to wait and see. No matter, we love her.

Thanks for the tips Amy. I'll have to look at Melissa's thread again. I never seem to have the camera when we're outside so it's the yucky lighting in my living room and I always seem to do it at night. I am so not a photographer. I'm always happy when I don't cutoff someone's head.
