The Smiling Frog (Three Photographs)

Many years ago I was visiting a film set for a dog food commercial. The Director pointed to one of the dogs then turned to the handler and asked, “Can you get it to smile?” I found this funny and got some dark looks for my laughing. Of course the handler had others dogs and they found one that suited the director. In photography I have noticed that anthropomorphism is one of those things that has impact, the more people can ascribe a human emotion or expression to the animal, the more they seem to like it (with the exception I suppose of angry grizzlies).
