Thanks for sharing this story. I especially enjoyed your descriptions of the grandmother. I could just picture her doing things such as flicking the dough off of her apron. As a dog lover I also enjoyed the reminder of the faithful friends they are to us. Thanks!
Aren't pets wonderful? I once had a cat who warned of a burglar trying to enter our home. Our firefighters are all heroes, too, in their own right. We kind of took them for granted before September 11, now our city has built a monument to them. About time!

Amazingly vivid detail - which completely MADE this story! So compelling and wonderfully descriptive and moving. I was engrossed from the first word to the last!

I love your descriptions. I could picture every move. Great title, too.
