Picture the torment of the community newspaper editor, toiling away on deadline, confronted with a brutal decision.
Two great photos of one adorable Cloverdale dog chewing on a stick, field-side, have landed on her desk, thanks to the eagle-eyed, award-winning Black Press shooter, Boaz Joseph, with just hours to go before press time.
But only one photo can run.
The cuteness clouds her news judgement. Where to turn? To Facebook, where the consensus was running nearly 100 per cent in favour of the picture you’ll see on Page 7 in the Oct. 2 edition. (In the alternate, viewable on Facebook, Meadow is super-focused and enjoying that stick.) Dem-dogracy in action!
