For some reason my dog, Tochka - a Maltese X Shihtzu - is afraid of the camera. It may be the flash. It's so funny to see her slink away from the camera, very low to the ground. Sometimes she jumps onto me and climbs onto my neck. Btw, Tochka is a Russian word which can be translated as 'spot', 'dot' or 'full stop'. I think she's more of a semi-colon.
