My first shot is always of my dog, unless it's longer than 200mm. Then it's of a squirrel, a tree, or a squirrel in a tree.

One habit that you may or may not consider weird... no lens goes in the bag unless it's been turned to infinity, a habit I developed when I started shooting with Nikon lenses. That way I always get instant feedback as to which direction I need to turn the focus. It also makes the non-IF lenses their most compact.

I tinker with half of my photo gear :-)
And thats a lot.

Most Zeiss lenses enjoy a kind of puppies protection / are worth preserving.

I will often, while at work, just pull my camera out, put a nice lens on it, and sit it near my desk. It's almost like a little calling: don't worry, eventually you can get away from the grind and go shoot.

I try to make my first shot with a new lens or camera something interesting (like a squirrel) rather than a bookshelf. I remember rushing to get my 5D3 home before dark so I could get to the squirrels before they went to bed. I didn't have time to get the settings right.

I do have pictures of toes, but I don't take them compulsively.

I hold my breath while shooting. I nearly passed out once doing a 2 minute bulb exposure.

Does your dog change size quite often?

I press the shutter then have to press the shutter 3 times after.

I'm not sure if it's OCD or incompetence

I always turn two circles counterclockwise and toss some grass in the air to judge the wind velocity before taking the first shot. But then everybody does that.

And, of course, I shoot test charts and then disassemble the lens to see how it is put together before taking any actual photographs. Other than that nothing unusual.

Maybe it's a zoom breed?

Do your dogs not expand and contract with the air temperature?
