Old Man & His Dog...

Today I saw an old man barely walking his dog, barely walking his old dog, barely walking his old, scruffy, small dog. Barely walking together. Even the lead was old and joined to another. Khaki cardigans and leather slip-ons. He looked lost on a footpath he's probably walked a thousand times before, not lost as in directions, just lost as in he had no where to go or nothing to do. Just floating past all these people that swagger with purpose and reason, places to go, people to see. I wonder if anyone sees him? Or his faithful companion? Who's probably seen as many interesting things through the years as his Master. I don't wanna know what it is to get old.
