Sunday Black and White - On Waiting

On the days I work at squirrel headquarters Abby has a professional dog walker, a retired female postal worker who just loves her and takes her for a midday long walk, rain, snow, sleet, or shine.  Her dog walker drives a bright green toaster-shaped vehicle, parking it in our driveway outside the living room window and Abby knows it by sight and sound.

On the days I telework at home, she still waits for her friend, looking out at any car she hears coming near the house around lunchtime even though I'm the one that will take her out to play in the yard midday.

 Still - she misses her friend.
