Looking for Irene

Irene and Robin, Slabtown

Sophie runs around Robin's house with her nose to the ground, tail wagging.
Sophie is looking for Irene.
Sophie checks beneath the front porch, the back porch, she crisscrosses the the garden, she looks in the creek.
Sophie searches every room in the house.

Sophie's friend of six years is dead.

Sometimes being simple is a comfort.

Sophie can't find Irene.

And such a wonderful picture of both Irene and Robin - the closeness is achingly clear.

What Sophie doesn't know, won't hurt her? Only she knows.
