The short depth brings me to focus on the shoes. The dog, though captures my attention even though you blurred it in your bokeh. So, I am a bit confused why I should be looking at the shoes. The dog is the cute element in the scene.

May. I would like to explain my comment above. I am not sure what your understanding of it is. What I am saying is that from a composition standpoint the photo is confusing. From a photographic standpoint your photo is fine. From a photographic standpoint the subject is well centered. The low angle of capture is well done. And, the black and white has enough contrast to make it enjoyable to view.

But, from a composition standpoint it confuses me. A bokeh or blurred background or foreground is used to emphasize to the viewer what the photographer wants him/her to view - that which is sharp and has clarity. In this photo you blur the dog and sharpen the shoes. But, from a viewer's standpoint what do you think attracts his/her attention? The dog; not the shoes. Maybe in your culture shoes are cute and dogs are not. But, in mine it is the opposite. Typically, when you have a clash of appeal like this I would be inclined to not use a bokeh at all. Let the viewer chose what he finds cute or interesting. But, that is me. However, you are the photographer and what you want to do and emphasize is the more correct idea to follow.

Alas, you are the master. And, I but a failed novice. So whom am I to question?
