“This little old dog. A heartbeat at my feet.” -Edith Wharton
This is Diamond. My new right hand girl. She is over a year old now and still a handful. But always with me. And she wants to be good.
In wintertime, we feed cows together, fence together, do errands together, sit by the fire together, sit on the porch together, work calves together, wherever I am, there she goes. I notice her absence more than her presence. And I know from my former canine companions, as I still feel their absence every day, that this is part of being a dog.
In summer time, it is hard to explain to her that, now, she has to stay home. She can’t go to deliver with me, or go to the Farmers market with me. It is hard to leave her. And the picture above was taken in one of these moments. How do you explain to the “heartbeat at your feet” that she can’t go with you?
