Tod meines Hundes

Jessie starb an einem Montagmorgen im Dezember

Das hier ist für Jessie. Der mein Hund war. Der aussah wie ein Jack-Russell mit Bratwurst gekreuzt. Und dessen Leben so plötzlich vorbei war – von jetzt auf gleich.

Eben noch hatte er da gesessen, auf der Wiese, am Tor, das eine Ohr zu mir gewandt, die ich bei den Pferden hinter ihm stand, das andere hin zur Straße gedreht. Auch ich hatte den Traktor kommen hören. Darum hatte ich zu ihm rübergesehen. Jessie saß am Tor. Dass er auf die Straße lief, hatte ich nicht erwartet. Hatte mich wieder dem Pferd zugewandt.
