DEMON IN DISGUISE (ONE DOG’S VIEWPOINT)
by P.S. Joshi
He thought he found the perfect hiding place.
The dreaded words rang out from Marcie, “Doggie, doggie, doggie.”
Now Boris was that “doggie” and in hiding as usual. He was normally a people-loving dog, but this two-year-old was no ordinary person. She was, in his eyes, an atrocious demon child.
His perfect hiding place behind the living room curtains was not the sanctuary he’d thought. He was almost grabbed by the leg.
Why did the big people think this child was sweet? She was devious. He could have sworn her eyes glowed in the dark. The whole day was spent in finding good places he wasn’t discovered.
It was only since she’d started walking that she’d become a threat. She seemed to have been a harmless baby. What a disguise, a cover-up.
He could now see through the cuteness, big blue eyes, blond ringlets, dimpled smile. Life for him was a misery. His food dish was the exception.
