Dog sitting

I'm dog sitting for this lovely girl, a ten year-old Belgian Shepherd. What a sweet doggie. She is very sad that her owner is gone, though. Most dogs don't mope as much as this breed, but when I researched it, I learned that they have to be with "their human." This breed tends to bond to one person, and they don't do well when left alone. To cheer her up I bought her Snausages and have been taking her everywhere I go. She loves the beach more than anything.

There's something about this shot that reminds me of one of Andrew Wyeth's melancholy and wintery paintings. She seems to be wondering, "Where is my dad and why did he leave me?"

Into the light.
