I was looking at this photo from last fall, taken at a Miami Valley Pet Therapy Association fundraising event, and rolling through the noggin what it reminded me of.
Ah yes, it puts me in mind of those yearbook photos of days gone by. We know today’s photo shoots of our high school seniors involve changes of clothes and scenery, a professional make-up session, and the obligatory bank loan to pay for the things. But back in the day, we simply showed up in our best dress or leisure suit and sat on a black stool to gaze off into the distance with a toothy smile on our mugs.
We’re looking off into our bright futures, our expressions would say on our senior portraits.
And that’s what it seems that the Mighty Micron is doing here as well. Not long after his graduation from mvPTa as a Therapy Dog, he’s imagining what’s out there awaiting him. Where will he be needed most? What can he do to change someone’s world for a day? How can he provide a sense of peace and comfort to a person in need of such things?
Or perhaps, considering the spot of drool on that lower lip, he’s merely watching a squirrel. You never know with Micron. The waters run deep in this fellow, but sometimes the brain cells get caught up in a whirlpool.
