While correcting the WB seemed necessary, my personal feeling is that the other suggestions would just undermine the shot. It works very well as it is. The white dog on a white chair works for me visually -- it adds to the feel of "embeddedness" to the dog on the cushion, which is entirely appropriate AFAICS. The rule of thirds stuff is OK, but the stasis of the shot surely doesn't require such a thing. In truth, it seems like a way to slavishly follow a "rule," even when it may be less than appropriate. FWIW

Thanks, it's good to hear a different point of view. I also like the central composition in this shot but I think it's worthwhile to reshoot on a darker background to make a comparison.
