After the rain, Sheba the faithful canine companion waits for her owner to come out.

SHEBA: “Are you ready, Esther? Let’s GO!”

Out on Eden Street, the air is cool after the heavy rains,

201007-p1160389

…inspiring Sheba and her friends to play.

201007-p1160401

Snow, the white Azawakh of Eden Street, is eager to join in for a good run.

201007-p1160404

But while Snow is free to go wherever he likes, Sheba stays within sight of  her human companion. Her guarding duties go before play, but she keeps her full attention to when her friend Snow starts missing her and comes back for more.

SHEBA: “There you are! I was not quite done playing yet!!!”

201007-p1160408

Once the action is over, Sheba makes her way home, walking through the cool rain water.

Her owner likes the setup and starts to photoshoot-

201007-p1160413

…so long that her friend Snow says his goodbyes and heads home.

201007-p1160414

Sheba keeps an eye on him until he disappears behind the corner of the street.

201007-p11604121

SHEBA: “Are you done now, Esther?”

201007-p1160421

Back home, Sheba sits on the wet ground.

201007-p1160420

The horses stand miserably wet,

201007-p1160424

…but they will be dry soon.

201007-p1160432

Sheba finds an alternative to photoshooting.

SHEBA: “Esther, you’re supposed to throw that toy for me, not take pictures of it!”

201007-p1160433

There we go!

201007-p1160435

Even Dennis Mugu lifts his tail and joins in on the fun.

And as the camera goes back into the bag, the horses are released and join the canines for some laps around the house. Nothing like the after-rains of West Africa!
