Poor dog! Left out in the breeze with no pants on and a bad hair-cut! Where's the owner so I can shave a Chelsea-cut on his ass? See how he likes it! Lol!

These are excellent and a bit humorous. I think he's waiting for the bus. :)

That's Joker... a 3 year old Standard Poodle... yes... he's a show dog and he belongs to Lawrence Levoir who is a local groomer. Joker is standing in front of Lawrence's grooming studio.

@ Molly
thanks for your explanatory comment
helpful for Non-Torontonians
@ N
exactly my first impression :
the bus is late and he's a little bit annoyed.
such beautiful people should'nt be forced to drive means of local transport but have a car of their own, with a chauffeur!
but...he's an animal!
we should'nt think here in human scales, should we?

@ Sam
two very very very good photos!!

Oh, this is my neighbor's dog. He never puts him on leash. He is so adoreable, his name is Joker.
