Bart's Moment of Disappointment

"Bart" is not his real name, but that's what I called him. As I walked past the gate, he stuck his head through the bars, snorting and grunting. Bart accepted all the attention I had to give.

After a minute or two of a good ear rub and words of encouragement to the imprisoned bull dog, I took this parting shot. Words could not describe the disillusionment on his face.

He looks so much like the dog I grew up with, same dark ear on one side and all. He does have a very expressive face. I wish I was there to give him a pat and scratch behind his ears.

Yes, Bart or perhaps Prudence. I want to feed him/her cheese.

I bet he wishes you'd come back and take another photo. Bless his heart!
