Claude (Monet) Redux
“Here’s some good news,” Bernie says. “Remember that golden retriever, Claude, who got lost after being in a car wreck last month?”
I do not.
“Well, for one thing, it turns out his full name is Claude Monet, after the painter, I guess.” We know painters, of course, from when Leda had the whole house painted robin’s egg blue, inside and out. That was just before the divorce. “Anyway, the driver – charged with DUI – has been searching all over outer part of Cape Cod for Claude, and yesterday a woman cleaning a house in Truro spotted Claude in some bushes. She actually crawled to him, holding out a treat, and got a collar on him. The vet says Claude’s lost about fifteen pounds but is otherwise in pretty good shape. So: happy ending.”
One little thing, in case this ever comes up: if you’ve got a treat for me, there’s no need to crawl. It will only slow things down.
