Great descriptions, and such a tender ending. It actually brought a tear to my eye. Wonderfully told.

Wow, the dynamics of this piece was wonderful. Love the way it built to the climax and then came to a soft and sweet ending. Well done!

Aww....sniff...sniff...I miss Peaches Sue and I didn't even know her. Nicely developed characters for such a short word count. Well done!

This is a great story--beginning to end.

I liked the way that the change to the name, Peaches Sue, seemed to give the dog even more character. Well narrated.

I thought that maybe dad was protesting too much! Great story.

Very good. I liked the gently positive ending lines the best.

Congrats! We once had a dumb dog, too. Couldn't help but love him, though. Sounds like this one was lovable, too.

Congratulations on your EC. I really liked the voice of this story. Very entertaining.
Congratulations on taking 6th place in your level with this piece, Beth!

Oh man, the first half had me agreeing, what a stupid dog! The whole fishing rod scene was priceless. The second half was then quite a tear jerker. Congrats on placing.

I've hooked some odd things with a fishing pole but no dogs (not yet anyway). That was funny, painful, but funny. You packed a ton of story into 750 words. Enjoyed every bit of it. Congrats on the EC.
