Good dog sits, stays

I came across this stoic guy while out exploring in the AppalachianĀ mountains. He was guarding a field of weathered treasures. We watched each other for a minute and I let him know I was just passing through and he let me know he wasn’t.

The world was changing, he might have explained. And his people were going right along with it.

And as everything moved on the way things will, he was going to stay, pay tribute to the past. He gave himself as tribute and we all respected him for it.

Sometimes we call.
