E. D. Lawton had bought the dog impulsively, probably because he wanted something to decorate the hearth at the Big House, like a pair of antique andirons. But St. Dog had resisted his fate. St. Dog was decorative enough, but he was also inquisitive and full of mischief. D. came to despise him; Carol Lawton ignored him; Jason was fondly bemused by him. It was Diane, who had been twelve, who bonded with him. They brought out the best in each other. For six months St. Dog had followed her everywhere except the school bus.
But in the face of unknown and poorly understood threats the human race managed not to trigger a full-blown global war, to our credit. ” In the long run, it was understood, we might have to pay a higher price for whatever had happened to the planet . . but in the long run, as they say, we’re all dead. I saw the change in my mother. The passage of time calmed her and the warm weather, when it ﬁnally came, drew some of the tension from her face. And I saw the change in Jason, who came out of his meditative retreat.
Dog was always patient while she got her breath back. She was attentive to the animal in ways none of the other Lawtons even tried to be—she was sensitive to his moods, as St. Augustine was to hers. I couldn’t have said why I liked this about her. But in the uneasy, emotionally charged world of the Lawtons it was an oasis of uncomplicated affection. If I’d been a dog, I might have been jealous. Instead it impressed on me that Diane was special, different from her family in important ways. She met the world with an emotional openness the other Lawtons had lost or never learned.
