Default Rielly

I haven't written a story in awhile..and if this is rough i am is off the top of my head. I wanted to tell you about a dog i knew ..and how he said goodbye.

Rielly was the ex's dog. I was 17 i was as young and dumb as you could get, but i did know dogs, and Rielly was different. Rielly was more.
We had a relationship based on soon as ex then hubby left..rielly and i had a bag of marshmallows and i would take one by one out and roast them in the wood stove (our only source of heat) and give them to him. I have yet to meet a dog that isn't in love with a freshlyt roasted (but not to hot) marshmallow. We went for walks..we had long talks. When i would have to make a run for it because ex was in a one of his moods..Rielly ran with me. We even had our favorite hiding spots. There was a clear fresh springfed pond of the farm (it ws 240 acres) that we went swimming in on all the hot afternoons. My labrador Charlie was there as well, and little scamper, but Rielly didn't mind the company. He never felt like you were with a dog..
One day Rielly came home and was shivering. I looked all over him before i found the little round hole in his hip. Ex came home and i showed him what had happened. It was x-rayed and found that the bullet couldn't be removed, it had wedged into the socket it's self. I was sitting on the sofa with cousin John..and the dogs were all conked out on the floor when Rielly came up first to little john and then me. He sat in front of me and just looked at my face..for a long long time..first little John, and then me. Ex and his father came in and said they were going somewhere..Rielly went with them. As soon as he walked out the door little john turned to me and said.."why is Reilly leaving"..we both knew we would never see him again.
Ex came back with dad and said that rielly jumped out of the back of the truck and they couldn't find him. I don 't know what happened..and ex wasn't somebody u ever questioned..but i did know that Rielly knew he was leaving. That was how he said goodbye.
