We have decided to leave Lucy behind. There is no point taking her to a city so full of animal advocates and yet so resistant to dogs. But what is the alternative. Who will take her? How will she manage? How much is sentimentality at issue? She become accustomed to this life. We will now betray her, but what does that mean? Mohammed has offered to get her a job with his father on the other side of the volcano, minding sheep. She's on emotional welfare now, how will that be? Sleeping outside. Becoming an animal again. We've sanded that down. She's gotten used to her chair, to attention, to easy refuge. On the other hand she disappeared for two months, and only came back because Mohammed found her wandering. Don't think about it so much, I'm thinking. And then I wonder how this will work.
