Dog ownership demanded I faced all kinds of weather. Today, I really didn’t want to. I looked at my greyhound, Apollo, he too was watching the snow tumbling down and wind shake the wooden staircase and pine trees.
‘We’ve been out in worse,’ I spoke.
The snow was blinding and soon I lost sight of Apollo. I shouted him but the wind blocked me, I started a mad search but the snow was too bad.
With frozen tears on my face, I returned and found Apollo shivering by the front door.
‘Good dog! You found your way home!’ I cried and let us both safely inside.
