Your story is poetic and your descriptions are lovely to read. I like how you brought in the character
's story.
Beautifully written tale. (Please, let it be fiction.) I love the combination of your seeing all that you describe, while being pulled emotionally, as well. Nicely done. (BTW, snow in the Skagit Valley brings the same reaction. :)
Beautiful prose here for description of nature and emotion.
A huge emotional story in such a small amount of words. I love the line "does truth lie in darkness" - so much to think about there. The story pulls at me in kind of a haunting way. Great entry.
Very descriptive with a mild smooth voice. Your opening and ending tied in well and some of the imagery was outstanding; poetic. Great job.
Very involving in every sense of the word. Amazing imagery and emotional cues - deep and abiding loss and hope all tied together. I could join in the moment - the sights, smells, regrets, suffering, hope, and the tender/loyal/committed relationship between man and dog that offered sweet companionship in the midst of it all. Wonderfully done!

Beautiful imagery. I could feel the chill in the air and the sadness of the MC. Wonderful writing.
