Funny? by sing-cuckoo Funny? by sing-cuckoo
Maybe I just ask too many questions? My teacher would say that the picture "is not funny like haha " and she would be right. The dog was generally very amusing, but in this pose, and taking into consideration that he also has feelings, and that what he does is actually begging (in a way, at least), some thoughts of poor people who have to ask for living like him, came to my mind. Well, okey, it can be my mood. Too much of reading ;). And his eyes are also guilty - this type of dogs has such sad eyes.


*EDIT* (26 April 2015): please note that the dog is not bowing, he is scratching his side. 
He is well fed and he has an owner that treats him well.

I dunno. I just get really emotional when I see things that look sad.

Before making an emotional comment, please consider the feelings of the person on whose work you are commenting. You may actually hurt that person's feelings. 

I'm sorry but I'm not gonna be ashamed of posting this picture. This just shows that people are easily manipulated by pictures and they just don't care about reading comments under pictures or doing any research. I did not make you to see this picture - it was your choice. I know that the subject of this picture is not *easy* to digest - life is full of sad moments.

The owner was nearby, so he didn't leave the dog alone; but the fact is the dog looked poorly (this breed has very sad eyes and this may have magnified the effect). Don't want to be too judgemental of the owner, but if I were him, I wouldn't have used the dog that way.

the dog has an owner and i learned from a friends that his owner is ok. althought, i don't find this kind of treatment as "ok", there are no basis for accusing the owner of anything bad.

Jeez, I understand that it could have just been a "funny" thing the owner was doing bored one day, but I dunno if this was what I'd call appropriate. It was fun to read the polish, though

Yes, he has someone looking over him. No worries.

The language is Polish - very beatiful and extremely difficult to learn ;).

Thats horrible. I love German Shepherds. I have one and he is solo sweet. Whoever would let that happen and just take a picture is horrible!

Thanks for the feedback. Please note that there was a comment which explained that the dog is treated well by his master and gets proper food. I'm not saying the dog should earn its leaving this way, but there are many other dogs in much much worse situation. Therefore, I wouldn't call myself "horrible" for taking the picture. And I thought that maybe I was making a point by posting the pic. Obviously, I must have been wrong.

I cant read this but judging by the comments about the dog having no food or whatever.

Have you ever noticed that people tend to pity animals more often than their own kind? You see a beggar, but ignore him and go on, but when you see an animal in the same situation/state, you feel pity and want to help?
Plus, if a human and an animal do the same thing wrong, the human is most likely to be worse off than the animal.
On the other side, there we are at our favourite (fast) food restaurants eating cows, chicken and whatnot.
There is a book called "Rashomon" by Ryunosuke Akutagawa in which you will find a story about a monkey. If I am not mistaken it is the second of many short stories in the book.
Read it if you get a chance and think about it.
