He's Been Around the Block

by LorriAnn Sanchez-Torres

It was my third night on the island. As I was getting ready for bed, I heard a light but persistent thud on the door. I opened it and before I could say “no,” he was sprawled across my bed. The next morning, he obviously had plans and left in a hurry. Later, I saw him at a restaurant where people gathered around, patting him on the back and offering to buy him dinner. I realized at that moment that he was a loner and as I looked away I wondered, “How much steak can a Great Dane eat?”
