Langosta surfer's dog


Yesterday I showed this dog sitting on the beach like he owned the place, but I could see that he wasn't completely casual or care free.  He was focusing on watching something or someone in the surf.  

In a little while he bolted up and ran out to the surf, staring in anticipation.  One of the surfers was paddling in to shore across the mouth of the Langosta estuary.  The dog reminded me of dogs who anxiously await the return of their master at home.  The only differences were that in this case the dog's master was not returning from a long, hard day at work, but from a morning of surfing. 

The top photo shows the dog riveted on the sight of his master from a distance.  The bottom photo shows the dog continuing his concentration on his master's return, all the way to the shore.

Tomorrow I will post two more photos that will complete the scene of the dog and his master's return from the surf.

Dogs are famous for this attitude about their masters and this dog is really a nice looking animal. I like dogs better than cats but am learning to like the cats as well.

Such a dedicated friend! You can see the bond between them.

Well, hell, I was close. It's just that he's only one, he's not close to 70, and he's got his clothes on.
