This image actually seems to have been captured after the vet. This dog has already suffered its traumatizing vet experience. It has survived, but it is not happy about it. Those eyes show nothing but defeat. There is no more fear here, no worry, just disappointment.
One minute, the pair are riding happily on their way to who knows where. Maybe the dog park for a game of fetch? Maybe down to the beach for a run along the coast. Alas, no. It was the worst place on earth. The betrayal is over, but the disappointment isn’t. How can this dog ever learn to trust again? We’re sure it will be looking at its owner in disappointment for some time to come.
We have seen this look before. This is a knowing look. This dog understands exactly where it's going. Perhaps it's trying to stave off a heart attack by being the strong and silent type. Those wide eyes look pensive, but not accepting. He's trying to make peace with its fate; it understands what's coming.
The concern in this poor puppy's eyes is not something we are used to. Perhaps this good boy will get lucky and the trip will be simple and painless, because just look at that face! We really hope it all went okay. We're sure most vet trips aren't as scary as the car rides to them.
Are You Serious?
If we could read minds, it would be very likely that this poor dog would be less than happy. What might it say about this betrayal? "Are you serious right now?" He looks just kind of fed up and bemused that his owner could do this to him. He was such a good boy. He barely ate any of the sofa cushions this week.
But this pup can't speak, and we can't read minds. This pup's attitude is enough, though. Perhaps it's just angry, or maybe a bit scared. Maybe it's just disappointed. This pup may have to go to the vet, but it's not going to be happy about it.
The Incredible Disappearing Dog Act
This dog is thinking on its paws. He's in a bad situation, and the enemy is looming. Then, out of the corner of his eye, he spots his salvation - a bowl. Is it large enough to fit in? No way. Is it the same color as the dog to camouflage him? Absolutely not.
But the dog has a plan; he can shapeshift into a fur hat and when the vet comes in, he'll forget all about any dog. He'll just see his old trusty fur hat, quivering, and move right along to the next room. It's so crazy that it just might work.
They Can't See Me...Can They?
This cat is ready and waiting, watching everything with skeptical eyes. This shouldn’t surprise us. By curling down here in the sink no one can see her, right? She certainly hopes so. Her eyes are her greatest asset, but her ears are her biggest giveaway. You've got to give her points for trying. Plus, she likely has no idea that she's got those great big triangles signaling her whereabouts.
We understand the fear, the trepidation, and the attempt to escape. But it's too late. You're in the office. There is nothing else to do but accept the inevitable. This won't take long. And the day can only get better from here.
