Awesome photos, and wonderful dog!
That second photo looks a little dim, so I want to teach you a trick to brighten it up. You can increase the exposure of the photo to light up the dog, but then the background will be overexposed.
You can then increase your highlights in your favorite photo-editing software (iPhoto, Lightroom, Aperture) to decrease that over-exposure in the bright spots, and you'll end up with a photo that's bright on your dog without losing detail in the background!

Thanks for the tips, much appreciated :3 To be honest, I don't really use photo editing software as I have not been completely into the photography thing. I do have programs like GIMP however, would you be able to recommend any free, photo editing/enhancing software I could use for my PC? Thanks in advance and thanks again for the tips.
I've been out of the PC world for a long time and I don't know what software I'd recommend for photo editing.
Any photo editor would have settings for contrast, saturation, levels, exposure, highlights, and shadows though. When you get the hang of editing your highlights and shadows you can make your photos look a lot better.

She's a beautiful dog! I was reading a book a couple of months back and they had a section on taking photographs of animals. I see that you've actually practiced this technique. It said that when taking pictures of pets and animals you want to make sure you get down to their level (applies to kids and babies too apparently). You almost want to try to see the world from their angle and that's when you're able to take great shots of your subject.
