Ugly

His name is Ugly. He has appeared in my life a few years ago, when a very dear friend of mine, went forever. 
I’ve never believed in incarnation until Ugly, a beautiful dog, one day, just came from nowhere, beside me, watching me with his wet eyes and leaning my leg. He doesn’t eat meat although he is a puppy, and doesn’t like cars or motorcycles. How many times I’m on duty in the night shift, he is guarding the door of the department; when I leave the service to the house, he leads me.
As for the rest, he’s the most dog of dogs. And…he likes ice cream. Who doesn’t ?

(This post is for Paul and his memory. Paul, the most human of humanoids loved ice cream. He was a vegetarian and was killed by a car, in a stupid accident.)
