The Yellow Dog


Growing up on a 40 acre farm outside of Lone Oak, Kentucky I had several dogs.  The dog that stood out was "Leroy."  Leroy was a dirty brownish, yellow dog.  Rather that hunting with the packs of wild dogs in the back woods of the 40 acres, he stayed near the house. Leroy liked to bark furiously at the horses in the front field between the house and the barn.  But he would only get as close to the horses as I would  when I was in the field.  In other words,  he was lazy and something of a coward.
