The Club

Driving home in a long line of cars near the University of Minnesota, I looked up at a balcony of an apartment and saw a handsome black dog. I was admiring the dog while waiting for the stoplight to turn green when the dog turned around and headed back inside the apartment. That is when I noticed it was missing its right front leg. It's odd how I feel a kinship with the club of animals that Thompson is a gold star member.

I don't think it's odd that you feel a kinship to all the animals you see that are missing a leg like Thompson. You love Thompson and it's natural for you to like other animals who remind you of him.
