Sheditarod

Starting at the end of our backyard neighbors' driveway, my daughter sits on my old skateboard from high school, with our dachshund on the end of the leash. From 200 yards away, we start calling Hazel, and she finally hears us and bolts in our direction. Nantucket sleighride.

  5. Loved the foreshadowing.

    Pacing is a little slow in the beginning, but builds to a marvelous resolution.

    Great use of POV.

    I won't reveal the ending for those who haven't seen it yet.

  6. It's nice to be critiqued by someone in the biz. And by everyone else to boot. Imagine her with antlers ala "The Grinch....".
