Title: Nearly Autumn Harvest
- This year’s summer has been constantly rainy.
- At night, a cool breeze blows, and it makes me wonder if autumn is coming.
- The rice growing along my regular walking path is just about ready to be harvested.
- In the northeast, rice is planted relatively late, but they’re ready by the end of August.
- It happened last summer too, but Shuwa-kun gets really exhausted in the heat.
- We have to be careful. He can get really tired on walks, and his skin condition is not that great.
- He’s a mix breed so we can’t really guess his lifespan, but I want him to live a long life.
- Sometimes, on days where he seems particularly well, I take him for a long walk to really cherish my time with him.
- Most of the doggies at Nyander Guard are elderly or approaching that age.
- Elderly dogs don’t really find foster families.
- Up until now, it has been rare for us to care for an ailing dog in its final years. Most have found families.
- But if things continue this way, it’ll probably be us seeing them off.
- We really want to find foster families for them, because they’re our family, too.
- Ah, but, Shuwa’s still fine now, though! And he’s looking for a home.
