It’s interesting how the curvature of our hands fit seamlessly along the sides of a dog’s face.
I’ve imagined this piece ever since I began interacting with the dogs at the local shelter a few years ago.
It’s an indescribable feeling when a dog you’ve never encountered before makes eye contact and allows you to pet its face in this manner. It’s as if all of the noise and stressful environment inside those walls are tamed by a moment of trust and stillness.
