Dogs mini challenge (ish?)

Dogs mini challenge (ish?)

I'm not sure if this counts but it is original work on my part.

The theme of this evening opened up a whole festering can of emotions I have long learned to bury with comfort food; it may certainly be relevant to the forum but instead of posting a great essay of that experience let me focus on the positives that went into this sketch.

This was Ben, also known as Benbo boggins and a few other names. He wove himself into my life as a friend's border collie in typical collie fashion, as a master, overt at times and yet subtle at others, manipulator of people. A great friend in unspoken ways, a trusted companion in the harsh-at-times conditions of Cumbria.

We shared many a mountain scape together, just us, the rain, the path and the walk.
