Little Red (a haibun)
So small, it must be just a pup. I can barely see it in the deep shadow beneath the parked car.
Almost not at all, except its big sad eyes. Alone, no one around, dog or human. Where did it come from? Enough, walk away. I can't take on a stray.
It looked just like your Rojo. Just as rusty-colored, but so much smaller.
We found her, near where you said. Four months old, the vet guessed. A new playmate for Rojo, named Chula.
