The Dogs

 They were going to keep her in the hospital for about a week. She had a weak heart, the doctor said. The woman’s companion took the keys that were given to her. “Please go and feed them. Take them for walks. The two smaller ones more. The big one doesn’t know how to walk. I was never well enough to teach him.” She patted her friend’s hands. “Consider it done,” her friend said. She left the hospital room and walked as quickly as she could to her elder woman’s apt. She opened the door and the two smaller ones came to greet her, the black one first, then his black and white half brother. The big one was in the kitchen drinking from his water bowl. He saw her and came close to smell her. He looked up. “Your mistress is fine. She’ll be back home soon.”. The dog’s eyes shone.
