I took this picture of a friends mare and foal 4 hours after the foal was born with our digital camera. The flash didn't go off and I converted it to Black/White. Neat effect I thought even though I would have preferred it to be in color. :)
"Where Shall Bury my Dog?"
There are various places in which a dog may be buried. I'm thinking of a Doberman now, whose coat was as black as the night, and who, as farm as I am aware, never entertained a mean or unworthy thought. This Dobie is buried beneath an apple tree, under 4' of loam soil and during its proper season the apple tree softly strews petals of the green lawn of her grave.
Beneath an apple tree, peach tree or any other flowering shrub or tree is an excellent place to bury a good dog. Beneath such trees, such shrubs, she slept in the drowsy summer sunshine, or lifted her head to challenge some strange intruder. These are good places in life or death. But, it is a small matter. For if the dog be well remembered, if sometimes she leaps though your dreams actual as life, eyes sparkling, laughing, begging, it matter not at all where the dog sleeps. On a hill where the wind is untamed, and trees are roaring, or beside a stream she knew in puppyhood, or somewhere in the flatness of a pasture land, where cattle graze. It is all one to the dog, and all one to you and nothing is gained and nothing is lost ---IF memory lives. But there is one best place to bury a dog.
If you bury her in this spot, she will come to out when you call --- come to you over the dim frontiers of death, and down the well remembered path and to your side again. And though you call a dozen living dogs to heel they shall not growl at her, nor resent here coming for she belongs there. People who may make fun of you. People can't see the lightest blade of grass bent by her footfall, who hear no whimper. People who may never really have had a good dog. Smile at them, for you shall know something that is hidden from them and which is well worth the knowing.
The one best place to bury a good dog is in the heart of her master.
