Incredible Journey

I am only faintly apologetic for revisiting my calendar-- as recorded in more detail than at any time in my previous years-- on the pages of Fragments. Among other tales from last August, a favorite family story about our first black lab, Zachary, was one of my longer true stories. I've shortened it since, and the shorter version was published in PetLife, a national animal lover's magazine in December of last year. The Long Way Home is a story of one dog's devotion to his humans, and of course, verse visa. It seems especially fitting here as we anticipate the puppy we will bring into our lives. Who will he be and how will he change us? What sacrifices will we make to each other?
