Homeless man with dog. Photographer Veronica Henri

Indeed, a picture speaks a thousand words.

A homeless man sleeps in the arms of his dog on Queen St. W. in Toronto, on a freezing day in November, 2006. This photo was runner-up in the Feature category at Sun Media’s 2007 Dunlop Awards. VERONICA HENRI/TORONTO SUN.

A perfect panoptical photograph, this endearing epitome of friendship embraces life & love in its wake. This still frame effuses warmth.You can literally feel the quiver of the dog’s nostrils in the Canadian chill, the plight of the homeless man and the equanimity with which both have accepted their predicaments. A picture indeed speaks a thousand words!

Leaving you with this magnum opus, I take my Frisbee and my leave.

  2. Finally had a chance to stop by, and am glad I did! What an awesome photo. It gave me a serious case of the fuzzie wuzzies inside!! Thanks for sharing it.

  3. Makes my eyes tears… They’re both love each other. This is the most thoughtful picture I’d seen in a while.

  4. I cried seeing this picture. I did. Living with 24 dogs at home (yes 24) does make you emotional about everything. What fools these dogs are, they trust you and love you with such unbridled joy !!!

    • I too wondered the same and tried searching it on the internet, couldn’t come to a decisive close.
      Shared the pic to showcase the universal camaraderie b/w a man and a dog.

    • Came across this and was also wondering if any good samaritan had offered them a home??? A good security job wth a roof over their head would have sufficed ?? Anybody has the latest info???
