Lessons from my dog

-A A +A
By John Shindlebower

I’m about to make some of you boiling mad. But before I do, let me tell you about a dog I loved.
When I was a little boy, we had a medium-sized tanned mutt that wandered onto our three acres in Ballardsville and made herself at home. We named her Lassie. Lassie was a good dog. If I was bored, she’d play with me. If I was sad or sulking out on the back porch because Mom had just given me a whippin’, Lassie would sit beside me and look up at me with big brown eyes that seemed to feel my pain.
