Voices

Buuuuddddyyyy!  Buuuuddddyyy!var gaJsHost = ((“https:” == document.location.protocol) ? “https://ssl.” : “http://www.”);document.write(unescape(“%3Cscript src='” + gaJsHost + “google-analytics.com/ga.js’ type=’text/javascript’%3E%3C/script%3E”));
var pageTracker = _gat._getTracker(“UA-xxxxxx-x”);pageTracker._trackPageview();

A man’s voice calls in the distance.  Within a minute it repeats and I turn my head to try and locate the direction from which it’s coming.  Southeast.  The lower pasture?
Buuuuddddyyyy!

A hound dog yelps.  In response our three dogs who were dozing give a half-hearted bark.  The voices, human and hound are coming from down near the creek.  
Buuuuddddyyyy…

On Christmas Eve, the day the blizzard was expected, a neighbor lost their labrador.  Now, more than ten days later they are still searching.  
Buddy.

The voices repeat in heartbreak.

  1. oooh nooo,
    That is too sad..
    I hope someone out there found him and is feeding him and keeping him warm.
    (I think sometimes I love dogs more than people–and I have lovely people in my life, too!)
