a beautiful orange dog
August 1, 2013
A terrible image stays in my head. It is a memory from my childhood. I was with my family in a blue Pathfinder, a Pontiac. On a two lane highway, moving down a hill. In the countryside on an August morning. I saw a beautiful orange dog sitting in a farm driveway. Down the road coming toward us in the distance was a large transport truck. The dog saw the transport. Stood up. And ran down the long driveway. As the transport passed the farm house lane, the dog ran directly into the wheels. And exploded. When we reached the farm, there was nothing but blood on the road.
