Navajo Pup

chain up dog on car hood

Navajo Pup

So I am, for sure, in and out of commission this week due to the massive wind storms we have had in Virginia.  No power or water at my house, and nothing but hot, hard manual labor to be done, so I’m grabbing time and connection wherever I can.

This dog, a Navajo pet, has somehow gotten accustomed to being chained up outside in the 102 degree heat.  This is, sadly, how many dogs on the reservation spend their days.  This particular pup is fortunate to have a car hood to seek shade under when the sun gets unbearable.  As I picked up his children for Bible School, they told me his name is Bear.  I guess he is pretty lucky, as far as Navajo dogs go.
