“The Last Dog” re-sold

Just re-sold “The Last Dog” to Dogs and Dragons, edited by Joy Ward.
Story’s got an interesting history. I wrote it in 1976, when none of the sf magazine editors knew me, and got a form reject from each. They were all paying 2 and 3 cents a word back then, so I finally gave up and sent it to Hunting Dog Magazine, which paid me a quarter a word…and a few months later it won me my first fiction award, the 1977 American Dog Writers Award for Best Short Fiction. This makes its 15th re-sale.
