MAC AR AGHAIDH LINN PIT BULL TERRIER DOG - PORTRAIT STUDY
ACCOMPANYING THE STUDY:
Mac Ar Aghaidh Linn* Pit Bull Terrier is a saunterer; he savours his daily commune with nature. The woods speak to his soul: wild and unyielding, yet in the very same moment, still and utterly peaceful.
Unusually warm temperatures and a lovely breeze draw Mac outdoors. He strolls along a well-trodden gravel pathway that seems to come from nowhere and end in the exact same spot. Just beyond the brush, though, he hears a babbling brook. Birds beckon, and scampering squirrels and chipmunks dart in and out of view, enticing him off the trail.
Pressing through, with a few thicket-scratches and a tumble or two, Mac finds himself smack in a lush bush with verdant greens hosting a profusion of blooms and berries. Perhaps there was once a walkway here; clearly, no one had ventured this way in quite some time. Invigorated, Mac forges a fresh path and wonders if footsteps will ever follow his own - each reinforcing this new way; turning craggy path into well marked trail, into bustling roadway, into full on thoroughfare. He loves the symbolism. Where there is no path, make one. May it lead others home.
*Yes - this is quite the name to pronounce, but well worth the effort. It is Irish Gaelic and given to our ginger boy with intention. It translates as 'Let's Go! Onward To Victory'. When people call his name, pronounced 'Mac Air-Eye Ling', they are standing with him in his rally cry. Please join him by using his name too. It makes a difference.
