Doggy in the window

Every time we pass by this house on Ash Street, I look for a sweet face in the window. And nearly every time, a sleepy gaze follows our slow, meandering progress.

The dog’s gaze is an examination, a regard: a gaze at another animate creature. He sees us, which might imply he thinks about us — and we like to be considered.
