Shoot RAW and learn how to WB properly, no camera can ever truly get WB perfect, many can come close in many situations but some fall short. I assure you even Nikon falls short. I never trust AWB to get it right, I expect it to come close most of the time but i know how to WB many scenarios either by choosing a neutral white/grey patch or by understanding what WB values are right for sunny, cloudy, shade, and such situations. So consider WB your next target to learn in photography, you'll be amazed at how much better photos will look with the WB set right.

Thank you Mike.

I look at this different. I do WB manually on my K20. Because this is an old stuff I'm forgiving. Today, when I have to pay my money I want to do my life easier. For me K3 looks like music instrument made from high end material, well built, but tuning must be done with everyone yourself. I can produce excellent pictures with my istDL in manual mode. And I do. But if I pay money, I expect something what would made my life easier: decent AWB, good jpg quality directly from camera, fast autofocus and so on. And there is not a big difference in price between K3 and 6D or D610.

Nothing wrong with those expectations.  One thing to keep in mind is no camera will provide the fully desired output 100% of the time.  Since you only had the opportunity to do one shot, it's hard to make a conclusion.  For example, if you did three other very different shots you may have found the K-3 provided the best result on those.

As for shooting JPEG images of dogs, you shouldn't have any problem with a Pentax.  Either switch to Natural or lower saturation in Bright to -1 and avoid shooting any dogs that are of a very strong red color and you will be pleased.
