You have my undivided attention…

The ability to truly focus on the task at hand is a rare gift indeed, and Pearl is gifted.  She lives with some neighbors back home in Tennessee near a lonely and lovely hilltop where I used to put in many an hour in an ultimately futile “tame the wilderness” project.  Turns out poison ivy, ticks, and broom sage have more patience than I possess.  Many times as we labored in love up on the hill Pearl would come to visit and inspect our work, and she returned any attention in spades.  Love is often uncomplicated for dogs, at least I have found that to be the case with Pearl…when she is with you, she is all-in.                           (10 November, 2007  Nashville, TN)
