Hoping Wishing Waiting by alexgphoto Hoping Wishing Waiting by alexgphoto
This dog was lying on the pavement, his leash tied to a door. He was patiently waiting for his owner to return.
Hundreds of people passed by, he kept lying there, with this heartbreaking expression on his face.
So human, so expressive, he spoke with his eyes... I had to take his picture.

That look says it all.
He's lucky though, others aren't.

I'm glad the photo touched your heart. This dog is fine - he has an owner who was nearby, and took enough care to leave him a big bowl/box of water while he waited. ;)

very nice photo. I normally dislike b/w shots but in this case it is perfect to depict the dogs situation. Did the owner return?

I didn't stay there long enough, but it appeared as if he went to a nearby coffee-shop so I am pretty sure he did.
Thank you. :)
