"Leonard"

by Kate Myers

Leonard belongs to Myers' brother and is named after Leonard Bernstein, who is his hero. Myers couldn't get in front of the dog, because he just runs to her, so she got behind him and said his name. "He looked around like he was going to say, 'Whuhht.' I thought about naming the photo 'Whuhht,' but I didn't, because I couldn't figure out how to spell it. I've taken rolls and rolls of pictures of Leonard, and I was blessed, because it was the best one ever taken."
