Zigzag - a police dog

"This I don't dare" was yesterday's task at my recent photocourse.
Luckily I had to go to a photoshop, and there I met this policeman waiting in the queu, looking very dangerous with his gun and uniform. He agreed to do a quick modeling job for me and asked if I would be interested in his dog, Zigzag, too. The dog was a jolly barker, so it was not difficult shooting it with open mouth.
And for once my teacher was thrilled with our pictures!
Picture processed in DxO and Lightroom with Nik Color Efex (Photo Stylizer?).

Very cool shot......but i agree with Veronique......this dog looks quite dangerous!! Wouldn't want to run into him when he's in a bad mood!!!!
