Man and Dog

There’s something very appealing about men who clearly care greatly about their dogs and are hardly ever seen without them.

I was walking around the beach the other day with son, H, and we came upon a man sitting in the sun with his husky. I simply said: “Now there’s ‘man and dog,’ and dog-loving son agreed.

Next thing we saw the man root in a shabby looking rucksack and pull out a soft brush. As we pressed on, he was lovingly brushing the dog whose tail was wagging at a million wags a minute.

A glorious sight on the side of the sunny sandhills.

  1. Our son bought a puppy with birthday money that he received…Ralph (that was the dog’s name) part Doberman Pincer and the other part German Shepherd were friends to the end (Ralph met with an unexpected accident in later years at the hands of someone or something)…We were all crushed ..Later on another dog came into Tom’s life his name was Buster and he lived a long life and had to be put down due to Cancer..This too was the saddest day for Tom and all…It’s nice to see the love between owner and pet especially when it’s given and received by each other…
