Here she lies at my feet as I write. I sense her love, her loyalty, her age! So I decide to take a picture of her but I don’t want to get up from my seat…so I call to her in the hopes that she will lift her head and look at me. My camera is poised, I insist with the calling, she is just not having any of it, saying with her body that she just wants to be left alone. Then my husband comes over and calls her and she lifts her head ever so slowly and I take my picture. Loyalty, I said, but I didn’t say to who! She never lets him down and I must admit he deserves it more than I do.
