Coffee Dog

The dog sits happily on her man's lap while he reads right through the newspaper and enjoys his coffee. She wags her tail steadily, but faster for regular customers, as she watches each person arrive and each person leave. Everyone and everything gets careful examination. She looks over at me from time to time, thinking "Him again," perhaps, or perhaps not; but it is a scene of peace and mutual contentment as the life of the city swirls around and comes and goes.

That's a wonderfully peaceful scene. A good dog is a boon to the life of whoever meets one.

A lovely scene you have painted for us. Thank you.

An oasis of safety: Sitting, dog on lap and next to two fire-extinguishers.

The 'rest' has already been written by the ladies.
