A man and his dog in Kettle Falls

February 27, 2014

Nathaniel Waters settles down on the front porch of Meyers Falls Market in Kettle Falls and hugs the elderly, fluffy white dog laying on her bed and nestled in her sweater near the front door. Her slow, deliberate movements show her age (16-years-old), but she looks at Waters with the unconditional love that only canines feel for their humans.
“You’re such a good girl,” Waters confirms, petting Bella’s head and bestowing a kiss on her nose. Her tails thumps the boards in a lackadaisical way, as if to quietly affirm, “Yes, I am. And you are a good human.”
