what an odd place to sit, yet dedicated!

Perhaps it was the Palm Springs, CA area,
when we stopped at a community park.
Heath went skateboarding,
I went for a walk.

I could not help but notice,
as a neighborhood dog entered the area…
calmly walking up the street.

It reached the intersection
and sat down….

first looking this way,

and then that way.

Just sitting.  

Observing.  

Any cars that came by, would detour around the dog,
as it sat,
observing the few cars that rolled up.

At times,the owner would walk up,
signal to the dog and off they’d go.

Only to eventually
have the dog return
to its patrol post.

Then something caught the dog’s attention

and off it trotted,
careful not to ‘jaywalk’.

Only to have the owner arrive,
give a signal
and off they went.
