The growl began deep in Major's chest and rumbled forth warningly. He stalked with still- legged caution along the curving white rock driveway, ignoring Katy's, "It's all right.

The dog was standing slock-still, intent on the barn, the door that was still n|*-n. "Mr. DonncJl?" As if Kaly's voice had released a hidden spring that catapulted nun forward, Major bee-lined for the barn dour.
