Why So Sirius
Major was not your average dog, yes, he was intelligent and he loved sticks and balls as much as the next dog, but he had a job to do. He knew there were other dogs who worked: dogs that helped people who needed help; dogs that searched for missing children or bombs (although personally he felt that bombs were usually better left where they were). Still others gave comfort to the lost and lonely, like he did.
He gave a wolfish smile as he trod the mountain paths he knew so well, climbing to the point where the hills met the clouds. When he reached that point, he stood stock skill, staring across the horizon as twilight fell.
He watched as the night sky filled the air and the mountains blended into the dark hues he could not see. He felt a thrill as his path once again became clear and he started forward to the point where land and sky were no longer separate following the trail across the night sky, at dawn he would return, the light revealing the path back down the mountain.
But for now, there were people searching and only his light to guide them, and let them know they weren’t alone.
