The heart of a dog

I wonder what K was dreaming of yesterday evening as she cast her eyes toward the heavens.
 Perhaps she was remembering those days of bliss in the La Sal mountains.
Despite it being only mid-May when we were there, I climbed high in the mountains, crossing a pass as high as 11,600'. Usually, this pass doesn't melt out until July. The drought is intense. If K does rebound, perhaps we'll take advantage of it for one last short foray up into the high mountains.
Perhaps, as her eyes searched the sky, K was imagining floating like an angel through the meadow, just as she did a short time ago.
Whatever she dreamed of, she seemed to smile. Ah, the heart of a dog...

  18. I am one who loves to think about what a dog might know, might remember. Stella gets a far-away look in her eyes and I ask her what she is seeing, thinking. She never tells, though! Like our faith, our dogs will always be a mystery to us!

    Cheers,
    Jo
