For a mud paw

April 23, 2021by Layla Zarfati

However, in this somewhat so-so period, in which my thoughts are swirling around, often coming and going like shrapnel gone mad, there is one image that has been recurring for a few days and is a constant.

Perhaps it is because in the darkest moments, even the most seemingly insignificant, if not downright annoying, things take on a different connotation and are scanned one by one by our mind, which on this occasion has magically become capable of seeing beyond them.

Expression of a gesture that dog educators urge to discourage and that dry cleaners sometimes struggle to erase, the mud print on our clothes, which so irritates us-especially to those who are ready to go to the office-should, however, as I said, be looked at in a different light.

Of course, I am not referring to the repeated jumping on strangers, on our guests, and least of all if done with purposes of aggression. But to that way that our dog has of wanting to elevate himself to us, trying to prove himself more like his human reference, to get as close as possible to our eyes and establish eye contact that gives us confirmation that he is always here, ready to show us his affection at all times.

Perhaps only an illness could prevent him from making this simple gesture, unlike us, who distracted by economic difficulties, work, marital and existential crises, and the like, are often inclined to leave our affection for him a bit on the back burner.

Let's treasure it not only in the most difficult times, to which life often subjects us without much conviviality, but perhaps even now, where the restrictions for this pandemic starve us of social contacts by requiring us to reserve them only for a small number of living beings.

Instead, the memory of that muddy paw, undone by a cycle in the washing machine, should remain there, preserved along with photographs, name tags, decommissioned collars and frayed leashes, as a testament to a true love, just like the hearts that lovers carve into the bark of trees.
