Country Girl: Follow The Leader by 

This is another piece for the Country Girl series.
As a child I resided in Taiwan for a little while. There were large stone walls that separated the properties. My next door neighbor had this wild German Shepherd that tried to jump over the stone wall every time I or one of my siblings came out of the house. When going to school, I remember having to run to the car because that morning he jumped high enough to reach the wall and catch the edge of it before dropping down. I screamed thinking that was the time he was going to make it over. We had a German Shepherd as well. He was very protective of us and tolerant to a point. That morning when our next door neighbor’s dog tried to make it over the wall, our dog leaped effortlessly to the other side, confronted the dog with a lot of growling and one big bark. Then it was quiet. Our dog leaped back over to our side of the wall. We waited to hear the dog that we had been listening to bark for months. He was quiet and from that day forward, we were never terrorized by that dog again. Our dog was appropriately named Ruff.

This work was created on white 11×14 sketch paper with fine tipped black ink.
