The Seeing Eye Dog by R.J. Benetti
A Shaggy Dog Story
Did you ever hear that old joke that goes like this... FIRST MAN: My dog has no nose. SECOND MAN: How does he smell? FIRST MAN: Terrible! Well, a mate of mine used to tell a slightly different version; FIRST MAN: My dog has no nose. SECOND MAN: How does he smell? FIRST MAN: (Bellowing) He can't fucking smell! He hasn't got a fucking nose! Are you fucking deaf or just fucking stupid?! This short story is quite similar to my mate's retelling of that old chestnut; a subversion of expectations that blindsides you. Good stuff.
Who would have thought that you could put so much story into so few pages?
The Seeing Eye Dog is a micro-masterpiece!
Oh so brief, but definitely effective!
Would I do what the protagonist of this short do, were I to witness what he witnesses on his way to work? I certainly might! I can't give any of this tale away, except to say it is revolting and effective, and recommended!
