12th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
The Standoff

The white dog is my 2 year old Lab/Shepard mix and the brown dog is a Bernese Mountain dog that is about 14 years old. This was their first meeting and the young pup was showing the bigger, older dog that she is not afraid. They stood there for a few seconds and then started playing together.
