After all those beautiful dogs at Crufts, how about an ugly one! She’s actually rather beautiful but the beginnings of a yawn can create a weird expression like this.
This is one of my rescue dogs, Mia, who is a Bassett Ariegois – a French hunting dog – sort of like a Bassett but with long legs. She used to be terrified of the camera. She still is terrified of other people. But now, when I’m photographing another dog, she’ll push her way in and stare at the camera.
