    I would like to thank everyone for their comments and Birthday wishes! OLiver sends sloppy wet kisses to all of you! LOL!

He may have only taken 11th place, but he is Number One in my book, and also in anyone's book that has ever met him. He is quite a character, has eyes that will melt your heart, and is indeed, a Gentle Giant.

FRanz.....Obviously your little girl has great taste in her computer friends. I'm sure Oliver would just adore her, as well.

    Give Oliver a big hug from me - he is still my #1 :-) I think your most important vote came from Franz's daughter - I am always fascinated by what children see - they are unencumbered by our experience.

    Disappointed this top pick of mine didn't make the TT. That expression! Maybe he didn't like your birthday gift!?!?!

    I like this portrait very much, the topic, composition, sharpness, lights. My 1:st choice.

    Oliver looks like a character, and you've captured his expression beautifully. Our neighbours had a Landseer Newf named Caesar - when he reached the magnificent age of 12 they used to take him out for rides in the car so he could get out and meet his friends. He took up the entire back seat!

    My youngest daughter fell in love with this picture. Every time she finds me in front of the computer, she comes running and wants to see Oliver again. Then she starts talking to him, tells him what she is doing right now and asks, if he wants to join her play... LOL!
Beautiful keeper!

    The presentation makes it hard to determine the white coat is part of the dog. Still, equal to many other entries, somehow I had to rank them. Currently this is my no. 2. Love the expression, wish the image had been sharpened after resizing as it is too soft for my taste.
