    1. As a dog person, 5 stars. What would you do if your beloved pet/family member was to be taken for destruction after 25 years having never done anything wrong?

    2. An almost perfect short story - with what isn't being said looming large beneath the surface of the written words. Worlds of emotional drought conjured up in what isn't said on the phone. The disconnect between people that's too big to bridge, yet hinges on the smallest of actions, or the lack of them. The story is simple, a man is going to lose his dog, the one link he has to his dead and still loved wife. In the balance is one man's world against the rest of society. You know which way he's go [...]

    3. I enjoyed this nugget of a story. It's well-written, engaging, and thought-provoking. The attachment felt by the protagonist for his robotic pet and the conflict that ensued was convincing. Well done!

    4. I know what this story is supposed to be about what happens when robots turn on us,,, however to me it felt more like a comparison with the way a lot of misinformed humans treat pitbulls, rottweilers and other "dangerous breeds." I enjoyed this story a lot.

    5. A short story. Nicely written. A little sad, but an interesting thought experiment.I also liked the little interview with the author at the end.
