A Pat On The Head

Britain's Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, pats a police dog during a visit to the Royal New Zealand Police College in Wellington, New Zealand, earlier today.

DFO: Point of order … if you're going to pet a strange dog, it's best to do so from the side and not from the front, like Prince Kate is doing. It's easier to avoid the teeth in case Bowser decides s/he doesn't want to be petted.
