Here we have Charlotte showing off one of her cuddly toys.

Now you have to understand that she does more than just cuddle them.

She bites them, throws them all over the place, but most of all, makes little tiny cuddle toys with them.

That stint in the slammer hasn't slowed our serial killer none.

Oh well, better that than our shoes.

PP: Cropped, darkened BG, brightened and framed in layers.

Hello to those of you that are just looking.

Very handsome or rather should I say gorgeous little gal.

Well framed,the colors are bright and the little glint in her eye shows off a bit of mischief that is yet to come.
Well done Pierre.Give her an extra pat she deserves it for posing.

Hello Pierre
I love the look she is giving you! Very protective of her yellow duck :) Wonderful capture.. perfect details on Charlotte and her cuddle toy :)


She can come over anytime and play in the "graveyard" lol

Hi Pierre,
Even Charlotte looks like a toy!
Wonderful composition with marvellous colors, detail and texture.

ah yes! Charlotte the destroyer!! Adorable! Nice shot to include miss charlotte! I'll bet she killed that thing good! Nice Pierre!

She looks as if she is not about to give up her toy here, Pierre -- she is the mistress of all she surveys!
Great capture -- excellent composition

Excellent framing yet again Pierre. Nicely composed, good colour and lovely detail. She seems to be killing more than loving this toy. We have a small crate in our loungeroom in which we keep Tinker's assortment of stuffed toys, balls, rocks and rawhide chews. He is becoming quite good at sniffing out his favourites. TFS,

Many thanks for your comment on ‘Old Man Bear - Cuddly Toy’...Wrong colour? As in not grey enough :) Some of the material my sister used is grey it just didn't show up enough.

Hi Pierre...

what a cute "couple", Charlotte sure is cute... and bet she is the favorite one at home? lots of cuddly toy for her eh? :P Great sharpness and frame work.. something sticking out from the left hand side of the frame, is that mean to be? :D well done!!!


Hello Pierre!
Very sweet your Charlotte and her toy!
Perfect detail and clarity and lovely colous!
Nice momment!
I like the frame very much!
Best regrads!

A good one again Piet
Its realy the clown of the family I think...
Also good for your daily excersizes/walks :-)

Elle te regarde en ayant l'air de dire:
"Prends-moi en photo si tu veux mais ne touche pas à mon toutou!"
Bonne prise Pierre!
Et, Charlotte a elle même l'air d'une mignonne petite chienne en peluche...
Beau travail et bravo au modèle!

Hoi Piet,
Adoring shot of Charlotte she has to keep here name as "destroier of the cuddlies" high :-)
Great framing my friend!

Hi Pierre,
The eyes are outstanding-- you can hear her talking (this is MY toy) Great moment captured, excellent lighting and details. TFS Julie

bonjour cher Pierre, tres belle participation au theme avec la jolie Charlotte et son toutou. Mioum, une bonne patte pour diner, quoi de mieux ;))

Tres belles couleurs et details tres nets. J'aime le gros plan.

Charlotte a l'air de se demander sous son toupet ce que tu veux encore avec ta camera ;)))

Bonne soire et merci pour ta critique. Yan :)

Absolutely adorable capture and soon to be a cuddly toy no more..
Cute pov and very nicely presented. Love the framing. TFS

Hi Pierre,
Oh man, for one your little shitzu brings shame to our little shitzu Chester!! How do you keep her so neat and clean?!! Chester is always outside racing around with his two BIG brothers and its impossible to keep him looking as neat as Charlotte, such a cute photo, great pov and she looks sooo sweet for a Killer dog...:o) Very familiar with the scenerio though!! ha ha

Love this photo. She is looking in the camera as if she want to say "don't even think of taking my cuddle away"
