I had to delicately stalk this beauty at the dog park to get even this glance from her. Despite her size, she was surprisingly shy. In the photograph, her drool was much longer, and for reasons of composition, I shortened it. Originally, I thought of leaving it off altogether, but I felt it added character and realism. Dogs drool, and we love them.
