The man leaned forward towards the driver and said in a tired voice, ” Sir I would be grateful if you can help me find my dog ” .
Your dog! The young man exclaimed in surprise. Where and how did you lose your dog?
I was walking him when he suddenly ran away from me and I have been looking for him ever since, replied the man.
Reluctantly, the driver stepped out of the car. He was not comfortable but since he had offered, there was no going back. He started to move out of the light circle and looking into the night said, “I think your dog must have gone home. You should go back and see”. The words had hardly been uttered that there was a low, throaty growl behind him. He instinctively turned in a defensive stance. But it was too late! The old man’s dog had found him!
