Your descriptive writing made me feel like I was the one leaving the dog behind. I like that in the beginning it seemed like Sally was a person - gave this piece an element of surprise, which I like.
This was well-written, but sad. I think it might have seemed a bit more realistic if Sally hadn't been so spunky at the end. If it was my dog, and she acted as determined as Sally did, sticking her nose through the door after me, I probably would have taken her home. Having said that, though, I really did like this piece. Thanks for a heartfelt story.

Very compelling and moving. What a wonderful example of true love.
