Not shot for the challenge - was trying out my gorillapod - so it might have been set up better, but it looked like entries were needed... Nor I am I a fan of ersatz models, but in a recent bout of senility I acquired Buster who assures me he is entirely self taught. Also, his face did not show up well in front of sheet music.
Tiny crop at top (to get rid of more books on the piano - am I in the right challenge?), convert to greyscale, beef up red and green component, increase contrast.

Isn't that how most dogs learn? By sight, sound, and smell lol. I do love this in black and white - the lighting seems quite appropriate. I think it's cute!

Nice idea-and a dalmation can pull it off with the spots. Wouldn't a human be more effective here? I see a wrinkly "wise" old man...

But many Dalmatians are deaf... Is that an intentional irony? :)

I don't think this has anything to do with "street smarts". I think it probably would have worked better for the "book smarts" challenge.
