Joon in Massachusetts

August 16, 2011 § 1 Comment

New England.  In Sandwich, Massachusetts, I meet Joon, 16 years old, and Rocko, 13 years old.  No relation.  They have never met before.

Joon, 16 years old, meeting the bounding Rocko, 13 years old, for the first time.

These dogs are not on their home turf .   After spending some time in this old town, we head to the marshes.  I am in awe watching them take in this expansive new place.

Although very fragile, Joon embraces her new environment.

Joon’s fragility does not impede her clear desires to smell and move, move, move…….

Joon moving forward.

How does a dog reconcile the instinctive desire to explore and still be so very fragile? Here it is.

A moment.

Below is the photograph of Joon that is being collected by the New Britain Museum of American Art.  It is the first museum of strictly American art.
