I must admit, I am a sucker for dogs...dogs of any kind. The unquestioning loyalty and their unconditional love is unique in the animal world in my opinion.
While at an outdoor festival, I noticed the basset following his owner. The crowded venue had the basset side stepping human feet at every turn. Huddled close to his owners legs, it was as if he knew that his friend would keep him safe and lead him to a safe spot away from the crowd. Once they reached a safe distance from the noisy bustling horde, his friend reached down with a loving, reassuring hand to signal "it's ok". A dog's voice is in his eyes, ears and tail. All three responded with admiration...eyes fixed on his friend, ears back and tail sweeping the sidewalk clean in a 180 degree semi circle.
During the rest of the day as I walked the festival searching for more images, I looked for another couple who publicly exhibited this bond of natural unconditional love...they were nowhere to be found.
