Pennsylvania Game News - June 2019 - 46

Jeff spends the night dozing in a chair
beside the hound, listening to him breathe
as manic images of debris strewn in the
roiling waters rush through his dreams.
In the morning, sunlight streaming
onto his face wakes him.
The beagle, lying on its belly, raises its
head and whines, its merry brown eyes
locking onto Jeff's.
"Hey, Cap," he whispers. "Hey, boy."

A

S WEEKS, then months, pass, Jeff
and the little beagle with the buoyant
personality become inseparable.
During dog-training season, it's obvious the beagle already has a degree in
rabbit chasing, and they can't wait for
hunting season to begin.
On a frosty Saturday morning along
the river in early November, tendrils of
gray mist rise from the water, flaring
whitely in the slanting sunlight, then
evaporating into a translucent fog that
hangs above the gentle waters.
Jeff, Mark and Jeff's father wait
patiently in a big brushy flat the boys call
the "Scouring Pad" as Cap works the
thickets expertly.
It wasn't long before Cap's yodels rang
loud and clear across the flat.
He brings a rabbit round and Mark
tumbles it from his position atop a hummock.
They call it a morning after taking five
more within a few hours: three run by Cap
and two that were bounced.
After skinning the rabbits and tending
to Cap, the hunters sit down to lunch.
"River rabbits are bigger and faster
than farm rabbits," Mark says matter-offactly, having shot three of the six rabbits
that morning. "I lead them a bit more
than farm rabbits, which are fatter and
slower from eating corn. Any real rabbit

hunter knows that. That's why Jeff only
got one, not using enough lead and missing behind."
Jeff takes the ribbing in stride.
"I thought two of those rabbits you shot
were sitting still," he replies.
"Well, the best of us out there today
was Cap," Jeff's father notes. "He's a real
dynamo."
The beagle lay in the converted bed
Jeff's mother made from the wash basket
they'd used to rescue Cap.
"You're awfully quiet today, Mom,"
Jeff says.
She looks directly at her son for a few
seconds, then finally speaks.
"We got a call this morning from a
man, a retired lawyer from up in Stahlsburg, who wondered if he could stop
by later and take a look at Cap," Mom
explains. "I told him it was all right."
Jeff's stomach churns as the blood
drains from his face. The dark reality of
someone coming forth to claim the dog
always lurked in the dim recesses of his
heart.
Hoping that this day would never
come always was unrealistic, Jeff thinks.
Someone who owned a dog as special as
Cap eventually would find him.

T

HAT EVENING, Jeff sees headlights
turn onto the lane, followed by a
knock on the door.
Cap barks, bawls and trots around the
kitchen table. Jeff's father invites in a slim,
silver-haired man.
"Tom Landis," says the old man. "And
I knew who that pup over there was before
you opened the door. I could tell by his
bark. That's my dog!"
The old man kneels on one knee with
some difficulty as Cap rushes over, putting
his forepaws up against the old gentle-
