Very nice pleasant episode by Elspith Eric. One of her quiet dramas.


What an awful story. It figures that it's an Elspeth Eric episode. She fills her stories with weirdos. The wife is a fool.


As I listened, I was trying to guess what would happen. My own theory was wrong--I thought maybe Billy was actually a dog who had somehow become human. Sometimes the feeling of the story outweighs how interesting or clever the ending is.

I thought this was bittersweet. The wife was a bit naive, but maybe it was hormones and she was only 20. A nice ending. I, too, for a moment thought we was going to be the old family dog. Worth a listen when you don't want high drama, ghosts and whodunnits.


I don't understand why some people just don't like Elspeth Eric. I partially judge stories by whether or not the hold my attention, and this one did. t wasn't a bad story. In real life, there are weirdos and fools, but I don't think either appeared in this one to an extreme.


Beautiful episode with a well crafted script. Good sound quality and acting. I enjoyed the story a great deal.

Well I was pleasantly suprised, that even though the story started out slow with annoying weirdo characters, as most of E. Eric's stories all to often do, but it turned out ok. Of course the wife is unbearably annoying, and the husband just keeps kissing her butt... A bit unreal there lol!
