Hi-Ball, The Coon Dog
~i.e. "my garbage disposal"~

by Anne McKee

I shall never forget the excitement the day my husband entered the back door with the shout of, “Come and see what I have gotten for you!” My answer was, “Well, what is it?” I shouted this above the clamor of the noise of the dishwasher and microwave oven. Again my husband repeated, this time even louder, “Come and see. It’s something you have been wanting!”........

NOTE FROM YE EDITOR: And so goes Anne McKee's story about Hi-Ball, a most fabulous dog. Alas, this story has been bought for publication and must be removed from our pages.

But here are two more wonderful dog stories at USADEEPSOUTH. Check the articles lists for more!

One Good Turn by Jim Colasanti
