This is more than what it seems. The romantically inclined may see this as a dog awaiting the return of her master. She is resting on the sand by the currach because she is tired-out after romping in the surf with a doggy buddy. Why so tired? She only has the use of three legs, the left forepaw having been somehow mangled and still bloody. These are working dogs, perhaps not always getting the care they need in this isolated location.
