Abstract

THE REST OF HER LIFE/ THE DOG was a mixture of god-knows-how-many breeds, but the vet had told them he had at least some rottweiler blood. You could see it in his shoulders, and you could hear it when he barked, which he was doing that night when they pulled up beside the gate and Chuckie didn't say anything. He'd looked across the yard and seen her momma's car standing in the carport, and he was disappointed. Dee Ann's momma had told her earlier that she was going to buy some garden supplies at Western Auto and then eat something at the Sonic, and she'd said if she got back home and unloaded her purchases in time, she might run over to Greenville with one of the other teachers and watch a movie. Dee Ann had relayed the news to Chuckie tonight Chuckie cut the engine. "Butch is out," Dee Ann said. "That's kind of strange." when he picked her up from work. That had gotten his hopes up. The last two Saturday nights her momma had gone to Greenville, and they'd made love on the couch. They'd done it before in the car, but Chuckie said it
