Bernard’s Choice

photo (2)
Bernard has been asked to stay.
His final challenge of obedience school, Bernard must make a dangerous choice.
Does Bernard want the unconditional compassion of his loving family
or the plate of cookies he is being tempted with.

The final test.
The family tense.

Bernard’s dog mind slowly clunks.

Bernard inches forward.
Nostrils flare.
Saliva pools.
Cookies beckon.

I love St. Bernards. I mean look at their stupid lovable faces.
