I Love Dogs Because ... 2nd Place Winner, Advait Huggahalli, USA
Title of image: "Puppy Sandwich"
Dog: Sirius, Labradoodle
“I am a ten year old boy who lives in Chappaqua, New York. I was interested in photography since I was five because that was when I was given my first camera. I have always been passionate about photography and I love to travel, so I have taken many beautiful photos of signature landmarks and nature on my travels! I have only had my dog for ten months now but getting him has given me a new opportunity to take many different and interesting photos of dogs!
This photograph is not even a photograph, it is actually a selfie. In this selfie are me, my sister, Roma, and in the middle is my little brother. I consider my dog Sirius as my little brother because he is a family member. My dog is a family member because he knows me very well. We understand each other’s feelings, he’s always there for me, comforts me when I’m feeling sad, and is always ready to play with me and give me a hug! My dog is a Labradoodle: a Labrador Retriever, Poodle mix and he has the good features of each breed. He’s extremely intelligent and playful. Since he is part Retriever, he loves games like fetch and Frisbee. He doesn’t shed and in a family with allergies that’s a great thing for us!”
