Fat Dogs

Fat dogs in their precious coats waddle through the gate, treading the ice like swimmers in the pool’s deep end

In the clearing, an overcoated man with a fat dog sits on a bench, his hand resting on his cane

His fat dog runs with snow on his nose, his coat askew, his dog grin dripping on the frozen ground
