A Dog Story
by Ron R. Lacson
When I was in high school, my classmate Clarita had a beloved 3-year old dog named Kheko. We (my classmates and I) would sometimes go to Clarita’s house to visit and see her (she was pretty 😉 ), and there we would meet and play with Kheko. Clarita was living in a small apartment with her mother…, and of course with Kheko.
Kheko was a peculiar dog. He was a one-eyed and one-eared dog. His handicaps were very obvious the moment you glance at him. According to Clarita, he lost his eye and ear in an accident when he was still a puppy. We all treated Kheko like he had nothing missing and gave him as much esteem as he deserved.
