My sister-in-law had this really cute welcome sign/flower pot in the yard. Dusty, my Dad’s dog who travels between his and my brother’s place, decided to “salute” the bear when I had my camera out. This image is humorous to me because I have had days that went so badly that I wished that I could say a naughty word to someone who was extremely cheerful around me. Animals are almost always very up front about the way they feel about you. Seldom have I wondered where I stood with a dog. I know to Dusty the bear was nothing more than a place to mark his territory. To me, this image brings the same feeling that the song, “Take This Job and Shove It” does. It can make a terrible day turn into a little bit better day if I can find a way to put it into perspective, and this image can do that for me.
