The Waiting Spot
This is the door that Africa's lover returns through anywhere between the hours of 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. each day. She begins her wait around 4:30 just in case there is an early arrival. Yesterday when he left there was whining from the baby and the dog simultaneously. I sometimes wonder if I would be missed like that. Probably not.
I am in awe of the loyalty a dog can have for their owner. I heard a story of a dog waiting at the bus stop everyday at the same time for when his kind owner would return. The elderly man died one day, but the dog continued to walk to the bus stop and wait for him each day. It breaks your heart, but also makes me very happy to know that such love and loyalty still exists even today.
