This is Harley, a member of the Weimaraner breed,
one of the most beautiful dogs ever.
He is sitting at the door of his family's home,
watching the action in the neighborhood.
I always look for him when I walk past
the house because I never tire of watching
his springy stride as he follows his humans around
their yard or trots over to greet me.
His taut body covered by shiny coat
is aptly described by the phrase "gray ghost,"
words that are emphasized when he stands in
the doorway, his form contrasting sharply
with the background.
