    ed-clause

    1-They have not shied away from honouring less commercial fare, viewed by a tiny proportion of the cinema-going public.
    2-I walked Sally's dog, voted the most beautiful dog in the show.
    3-I walked Sally's dog, wearing a black muzzle.


    Aren't the clauses at the end of the sentences 'dangling'?
    Shouldn't they apply to the subject of the sentence instead of the object?

    Re: ed-clause

    Your clauses needed subjects!

    1-They have not shied away from honouring less commercial fare, most of them viewed by a tiny proportion of the cinema-going public.

    2-I walked Sally's dog, the little one voted the most beautiful dog in the show.

    3-I walked Sally's dog, the little one wearing a black muzzle.
