“Moonlighting” is the twentieth story in my collection, Girlfriending. Brett is an English teacher who works second shift at a furniture factory to make extra money. On his way to and from his daily jobs he passes a house where a dog is tethered to a very nice dog house. The dog appears to always have food and water, but it lays on the roof of the dog house facing the house of its owners. Brett never sees anyone playing with, petting, or even anywhere near the dog. This eats at him as he whiles away the hours nailing toe boards to coffee tables on his night shift. Read “Moonlighting” to find out what Brett decides to do, and how his decision changes his life.
