POTD: Wistful Golden Retriever behind bars – rueful dog

Photo of the Day: Cliff the Golden Retriever is usually lively and enthusiastic. But why does he look so rueful today?

There’s a carnival just outside but it’s not time for Cliff to go for his walk yet. So after peering eagerly through the grills of the garden gate, he has resigned himself to the role of onlooker - resting his head on the grill to see the world go by.

Cliff the Golden Retriever is a friendly fellow who loves to mix with the crowd.

Here’s Cliff looking ruefully at me while I snap his portraits from the garden.

There’s a rowdy carnival just outside and Cliff can see the kids out there.

But he’s not due for his walk for another hour.

So he’s waiting patiently for his time to come.

After a while, he decides to take a nap while waiting - resting his chin on the grill.
