I See Absolutely Everything
I See Absolutely Everything

“I see absolutely everything.” This was clearly stated in the look our dog Taz threw me.

Only seconds ago his legs had twitched as he lay in peaceful slumber. Sunlight from the patio door framed him like a spotlight and our grizzled mutt was center stage. Deep in sleep he chased his quarry; the squirrels, birds and rabbits that inhabit our yard are the bane of his existence. Wrapped in the warmth of his dream Taz slept contentedly.

Taz wears his graying muzzle like a badge of honor. The burden of time is evident in his struggle to rise to his feet. Long gone is the youthful dog that terrorized our house and the creatures outside it’s walls. I wonder what has drawn Taz from his current slumber. Watching him lumber through the dog door, I notice the squirrel perched cheekily on a gnarled branch that drooped outside the glass doors.
