I hate late night dog walks. The mutt insists I honor my responsibility. The mongrel’s insistence on sniffing every blade of grass to prolong our walk is directly proportional to my longing to be tucked in bed.
Tonight is no exception. Maybe I’m cranky, but the nightly tug of war is excessive. I glance at the cur who is trying to pull me in the opposite direction from home. I jerk the leash, and the dog turns, tail between its legs, snarling, it backpedals.
I yank the leash again. A hand covers my mouth and I wish I had listened.
Keep on writing.
