This story was partly inspired by reading reports in the London 'Times' that 20 metric tons of weapons-grade plutonium appears to have gone missing in the former Soviet Union. Even more frightening, there is no accurate account of the old USSR's nuclear arsenal. it is believed that some of this, too, has vanished without trace.
The explanation given is that of bureaucratic muddle and lost records. I certainly hope this is true.
'Walking the Dog' is a work of fiction. Any resemblance to the character and behaviour of real dogs is wholly intentional.
'Walking the Dog' was co-winner of the Silver Clit Award for March, 2003.
'Walking the Dog' is a long story. Opening a chapter opens it in a new window, so there's no need to hit 'back' to return here. This page will still be open. Enjoy!
