My Dog, My Heartbeat

Taylor and I have been hiking to the cemetery a lot lately. It’s not long; the loop is a little over a mile if we don’t hit any other trails. It’s incredibly scenic. Depending upon the time of day, I can catch the light on Taylor, highlighting what a beautiful dog he really is.

“I’m an introvert… I love being by myself, love being outdoors, love taking a long walk with my dogs and looking at the trees, flowers, the sky.”
— Audrey Hepburn

“A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than he loves himself.”
— Josh Billings

“My little old dog
a heart-beat
at my feet”
— Edith Wharton

“Heaven goes by favor. If it went by merit, you would stay out and your dog would go in.”
— Mark Twain

“All his life he tried to be a good person. Many times, however, he failed.
For after all, he was only human. He wasn’t a dog.”
— Charles M. Schulz

In the mornings, Tay just stares at me, much like he is at this very moment. I’ve been drawing and painting dogs quite a bit these past few months.
