I don't get the placement here, and I don't get the negative comments. Maybe because I know this kind of dog and its propensity to roll around google-eyed in the grass. Nothing about it disturbs me. It's a great use of selective desat, wonderfully composed, good B&W to support the desat, with impact and effect. It's probably just a little too out of the box for DPC voters. Fav'd.

Fantastic shot, 10 - there's something very surreal about the desaturated grass, almost metalic, and the crazy look on the dog's face makes the photo.

Strange looking. Almost morbid?

Very disturbing image. It looks like roadkill. But it's mezmerizing. 8

First thought: The dog looks dead.
Second thought: That's probably NOT what was intended, but it still looks dead.
Third thought: He's got a really pretty brown coat, but he still looks dead.

Sorry, the dog just looks dead. And with a wierd photoshopped eye, too.

That is a heck of a lot of work I think. Great DOF and nice subject. 7

The title suggests playfulness, but the selective desat gives the photo a more creepy feel. The word 'carcass' comes to mind, because of all those dark greys and blacks. Not sure you captured exactly what you were looking for here.
