Lum. Family dog for decade. Big, oafish Lum. Size and features of Newfoundland. Fur and coloration of German Shepherd. Heart of an angel. Brain of a pea.

Hit by car driven by my teacher. She’s in tears; car dented; Lum fine. Romps with little dog next door. Breaks its leg.
Sleeps outdoors most nights. One night bitter cold; stays indoors. My bedroom is on first floor. (Lum can’t climb stairs). Asleep, I suddenly feel huge weight on legs; can’t move. Sit up. Not only cats’ eyes shine in dark. Too scared to scream and still can’t move.
Finally realize: Lum.
[My first RetroFlash. Hitting exactly 100 words is quite the challenge (these parenthetical words don’t count!). Stock image of Newfoundland and German Sheperd since, sadly, could find no pictures of Lum.]
