My dream

The chemicals fell and seared off my dog's front paw. I held the lifeless gray paw in my hand and searched for ice. I placed the paw in the silver bowl and filled it with the ice. From her leg blood poured out but she was calm and docile. She let me wrap the leg tightly with bandages but the bleeding would never end. Meanwhile, the warmth from her paw melted all the ice so I packed the bowl with frozen bags of succotash and peas.

She is losing a lot of blood. Mother doesn't seem to care.
Will this work? Can it be reattached?

I must move quickly.

I'll never be able to explain this. Never.
