Scott Cromwell, 43, from Oklahoma City, caught faithful mutt Winston guzzling hot dogs after he looted the refrigerator. Well-trained Winston was then happy to get his five-a-day by taking tongue-in-cheek snaps with red apples, bananas, grapes, limes and orange. Snapper Scott matched the color of the background to the fruit to create the eye-catching photos.
