I made this little flag from colored paper and a maple leaf sticker.

I was hoping to find a toad to hold it tonight.

I mentioned it to my son who said that that would offend Canadians!

That never crossed my mind.

I know I wouldn't be offended if a patriotic toad held an American flag. Sigh.


Anyway, Jack got some treats for modeling and is happy.

It's not a technically good image, but I did convince a dog to hold a little flag in his mouth for an instant and it's not blurry.

Win. :)


Post Edit: @MarkWiley, uhhh... no. He was NOT obedient or a good model... nor was he compliant.

*sigh*

I got exactly two shots of with the flag in his mouth... and those were a burst of three.

Yet still... he got a treat.

I regret this. Ha!

ha, no, it would only offend quebec residents without a sense of humor. the rest of the country would laugh at your interpretation of the quebec populace ;)

Even the dog looks polite in her non-overbearing-nationalistic-pride :)

Cute idea, though this seems overexposed on the left and over-processed in general. The shadows appear boosted and muddy with very little clear sharpness.
