Thanks for all the comments and everyone who voted. I never expected this to place so high. I felt there were several below this that deserved it more but will gladly take 4th place.

It's cute, and I get it, but...

Maybe it's too cute. I'm not sure exactly what the problem here is, but it's just not a strong contender in this challenge for me.

this is cute, reminds me of the weimeraners on Sesame Street. Bonus for outside the box photo of the challenge, bump to 8.

Very cute! A How did you ever get him to cooperate! 10 from me (voted earlier, so if a score coincides with this comment, it's not mine!). Good luck!

VERY clever...brings to mind the "I work like a dog," or the adage, "it's a dog-eat-dog world..." Love it!

poor dog. cruel.
11/28/2005 09:25:49 PM
Lol, I think a striped tie may be more fitting. What a patient friend you have. Nice dof, like the b/w and the way the tie is caought in th breeze. Good luck on this mastif portraiture. -9-

Poor dog.
11/28/2005 06:02:59 PM
you mean he hasn't been working like a...
; )
a humorous take on this challenge. i think a full frontal shot with the dog sitting would have been interesting as a more formal portrait shot, too.

How about "It's a dog eat dog world"? The setup and exposure are excellent here. Should ribbon in this small challenge. I only rated one other pic as highly.

That is funny
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/28/2005 12:10:16 PM
That is one patient dog. Very nice idea. Love the facial expression. Tie is backwards and that is a little distracting for me, but otherwise a nice entry. Good Luck!

Good one. Made me chuckle. Fits the chalenge perfectly I think. The B&W works too.

Funny how that suit actually looks as if it fits him, wierd. Perhaps it´s the expression of the dog, can´t put my finger on it but he looks somewhat like a buisness man... Anyway, great job, like this shot, gave it an 8.

Exact symbols: suite, tie, serving like a dog, liabilities - well done...10

He must work at the same place my cat does. Classic!

Amazing what can be done with the help of dogs. Funny and so funny. 7 on my first pass.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

ROFL. You get an extra point for hilarity.

Give that dog a treat!!! Thanks for the laugh. In a perfect situation, this would have been done with a black or white background, but ........
