Artist's Description

This is the once in a lifetime shot and can be considered mission impossible. Excuse the photo quality. I had to snap this in record time and the content is my purpose in uploading it, not the clarity of the image, Given that the participants are adults and Olympia appears to like tight clothes, I think this photograph is in good taste revealing nothing too graphic since both dogs are wearing coats. Sometimes we have to lighten up for the sake of a good laugh and enjoy the spirit of the most unlikely pairing we might ever see. This scene might have lasted a few minutes. My friend brought her 7 lb. Italian Greyhound over not knowing she was in heat. She exhausted Mikey following him everywhere with no consideration of Molly’s feelings. He tried to get away knowing that the size difference and the fact he is neutered was not going to satisfy his little friend’s desire. She was relentless so in one kind moment Mikey lightly mounted her lifting her slightly off the ground. After I told my friend to take Olympia home because Mikey was so tired of her chasing him, he fell rapidly to sleep. Since his “lipstick” never emerged this was a meaningless tryst. This is what I told Mikey when we had our heart to heart talk. He now understands he did not betray Molly and when he showed her the picture, she laughed and did not even know what was troubling him. She just asked him, “Why were you playing leap frog with Olympia?” I have not even had my sex talk with my daughter yet so she didn’t even know what he was doing. It is interesting how we can get so bothered by things we imagine are going to happen causing intense anxiety and guilt when what we fantasize is only our own projection. I told Mikey that anxiety is anticipatory and I believed Molly would understand. He learned a big lesson today and said he would try to live in the moment and was very appreciative of the great attitude of his faithful companion, Molly who eased his guilt. He was worried since I did not have time to offer them a bedroom out of Molly’s sight. She did ask if they smoked afterward? I thought that was a fair question. Don’t you?
