Oh, how you ran that early morning! How fast you took me to the old-new house! We got there and everybody was asleep. It was touching to see you smell the tires, the tires of the car where you once rode in the back seat. You looked like a royal prince, the woman said. Your body was all straight and your tail wagged all the way to wherever you were going with them. You pulled me towards their front door. It was locked. You had come in and out of that door so many times for your walks! It was in that house that you grew to love strawberries. The family loved the fruit and you did too.
