A friend of mine took this picture and I absolutely love everything about it. It has just enough detail so you can figure out what is going on, but it hides enough so you can finish the story yourself.
If you look closely you can see that a dog is trying to take a toy outside, but the doggy door has closed on the little stuffed animal making it impossible to pull through. But who is this dog?
Is the dog big or small? Male or female? Purebred or mutt? What kind of temperament does the dog have? Is the dog a plucky type that will cock its head to the side while it tries to figure out the situation or is it about to rip the toy to shreds out of frustration? Maybe it’s the pitiful type and will eventually drop its head and look up with big sad eyes, saying, “Please help.” Does that toy even belong to the dog or is this a doggy thief, stealing a baby’s toy out of jealousy or just making off with a new find? Why is this dog trying to take the toy outside? Maybe there’s a dog party down the road and everyone is bringing their new toy, but this dog is going to be late. Maybe the rest of the dogs in the neighborhood will hear about what’s going on and move the party to this door so their friend can still play, or maybe all the other dogs are experiencing this exact same situation and they all think they are going to be late.
