Dark prince

Portrait of Kepler

This photo is of a far too rare sight.

We feed Kepler, give him a warm place to sleep and companionship both human and canine, take him to the vet when necessary, and love him dearly in my case.

However he spends almost all the daylight hours attending his great big blonde Maremmano girlfriend. (If you don’t know the breed, imagine a large, very heavily-built, near-white golden retriever.)

She’s about 3 times his size. She calls to him across the 300 metres between our house and the neighbour’s every morning, and she’s still calling to him after dark when he’s wondering which is more important – her or his evening meal.

I think of him as a lithe, dark prince racing over difficult terrain to satisfy every whim of his spoilt lady.

I’m sure she’d wear this photo in a locket round her neck if she was able.
