ok this post is about taking pictures of pets and and not literally shooting them...
was trying to take a pic of my yorkshire terrier without flash but the shots turn out rather dark even though he is fully lighted by window light. selected shutter speed of 1/125 at f2.8. shots using flash turn out fine.. any pointers??

try a higher ISO.. sometimes not really good that you flash your dog as their eyes may be subjected to too bright of a light (such as flash light) and be blinded. do a search on pet photography.. there's quite a few tips and examples around

yes, my other dog hates the flash so i normally shoot without it. howver, i saw this great portrait shot of this horse taken by andy rouse using AP at f8.0 and ISO50 and i am pretty sure he didnt use any flash..

Hi, is the window light pointing towards you? What I mean is that you might be in a situation where window light act as a backlight and cos your dog to become dark or sometime shadow. Use a spot meter might helps.
