Freudian Photo

Millie and I had our picture made this week for a promotional thing at work. She loves to have her picture made. I think the picture turned out well, except for one thing.
We were taking the picture in front of a busy street. We never let Millie off the leash because we know she would never come back to us, but I unclipped the leash for the photo’s sake. I still wanted to keep a firm grip on her. I also wanted to be hugging on her in some way to show affection for my pet.
But if you look at the picture close up…
… it really looks like I’m strangling her. Millie’s tongue is dangling not because it’s hot, but because she can’t breath because I’m pushing on her windpipe. I’m really not. I’m just holding her and hugging her. But still. Really.
