The other day I was stopped at a intersection across from a coffee shop. There was a dog tied outside -- he was mostly white, with some black and brown patches and he looked part beagle. He was standing up cross-wise on the sidewalk with his eyes closed, his ears blowing in the breeze. I swear he was smiling. Write a piece that includes a dog. Perhaps it could be one like the one I saw who was revelling in his doggieness. Or you could include a grumpy old dog who has never seen the joy of sticking his head out a car window and retreats to the back seat if the passenger side window is opened, barking his disapproval along the way.
