A few days after I saw the three dogs tethered outside a shop, I spotted these two. This looked a much happier situation. I love the silent companionableness between the child and the dog. I love the domestic detritus on the windowsill, and I just love the way they are not doing anything in particular, just watching the world go by.
I hope they are are great company for each other, and I know the child will learn so much growing up with a canine family member. And the dog will hopefully always have someone ready to throw a ball, or maybe just gaze through a window with them.
