Turning on the light, I peered out the kitchen window. There, setting on its haunches, was the large, black dog, looking up at me.
"He's coming to take you home," Madam Myra Auralight told me when I told her about the dog. "You're going to see the Other Side!"
She was wrong. I opened the door, the dog came inside and lay down beside the fridge. When I got up this morning, the dog greeted me with a smile.
