Get pushed - take a shot that depicts motion, specifically dog(s) in motion

Here she is, my precious Ruby. I got her to wait at the top of the hill for me and then called her to come.

This challenge was a good one for me as I rarely do action pics, I don't have a great deal of confidence in setting the camera manually for this type of shot. So, in order to get this shot I practiced earlier in the morning with a dog I walk - collage here - http://365project.org/stephanies/diary/2016-12-14 I practised with him with the camera in sports mode and then looked at all the settings. I then set the camera manually following the settings that were being shown on auto.

Having done this in the morning, I then took my own dog out in the afternoon. It was the most gorgeous bright day and as this pic was taken in an open space, I could away with a much lower iso and still got a really fast shutter speed.

Really quite pleased with how this shot came out and even more pleased that I took it totally in manual mode.

Thanks for the push @francoise
