A Dog Named Blue
When the author sets out to find a big companion dog, little does she expect to take home a huge Great Dane who knocks her over!
As a beloved family member, Blue creates colorful memories and captures her four year old son’s youth in an unforgettable sunset tableau.
When we got home I let Blue out, somehow knowing he wouldn't run off. After one look at our grass fields, he gave a joyous yelp and bounded off to race round in humungeous circles.
He was a terrifying sight: his huge jowls flapped up and down with the lumbering movement of his body to reveal long, pointed fangs. When he'd exhausted himself he lunged at me in gratitude for bringing him here, and knocked me over.
