The faithful companion
She appeared out of the sunlight
Walking stately yet with the limp of old age.
She looked kindly at me and Oscar –
Then turned back.
She waited for her old owner as she hobbled towards us on crutches.
“Please take a picture of Tosca!” she cried.
“She’s my only company now that my husband has died.”
Her faithful companion posed regally for her portrait
Before returning to her owner’s side.
(Today I printed out these two shots on big glossy paper and delivered them to Tosca’s house.
Big smiles all round.)
