Possibly not my worst nightmare but it would be truly dreadful to have one of my dogs bite someone. It did happen to a friend of mine when her dog was in pain and she didn't realize it and tried to groom him where it hurt. She needed plastic surgery :-(((

This doesn't look as menacing as I'd like but it's hard to make the dog look menacing without being able to see my hands trying to pull his lips back. You can still see a bit of one in the upper right corner ::sigh::

very good idea , a meaner dog would have sold this to me more ... something like a rotweiller

you've capture the essence of a dream-like view of an angry dog -- one of my favorites this challenge (as a side - very clean teeth on this "model" - my dog should be so well groomed)

This is a good concept for nightmares. I can imagine that in fact waking someone up from a fitful sleep if they happened to be afraid of dogs or wolves or big wild teeth. Great job!

now if you only had a big gob of peanut butter to squish onto the roof of his mouth...that would stop him
