My daughter and her husband have a dog named Lucky, certainly one of the sweetest dogs on the planet.  She decided to knit antlers for him.  She took a picture of the results and put them on her Ravelry page.  My son then took the picture, put it on imgur.com and linked to it from reddit.com.

Understand that when I place an image on Flickr, getting 100 views is cause for celebration.  In this particular case her image went viral, and to date this picture on imgur.com has about 90,000 views.  I decided to put together a little page for Lucky at GLSmyth.com/reindeerdog/ and noted that this image has been used on other websites – actually, many, many other websites.  You can click on the “Find the Reindeer Dog!” link at the bottom of the page to see the current crop.

So how does one photograph the most famous greyhound in the world (other than Santa’s Little Helper)?  I have no idea, but I engaged Lucky on one of his many busy breaks and got this picture.
