  • I sweet tale about a man and his dog.

    After supper one evening Hyder Simpson and his dog Rip decide to go coon hunting in the woods. His wife Rachel begs Hyder not to go because she sees omens that lead her to believe that Hyder and Rip won't return home that night, but they go anyway. While out in the woods Rip spots a racoon and chases it into a pond. When Rip doesn't come up from the water, Hyder jumps in after him. After an unsuccessful coon hunt, They decide to return to the cabin only to learn that no one can see or hear them. They find a grieving rachel and a preacher inside discussing Hyder, and the omens Rachel has been seeing. Hyder and Rip soon head down the road and come to a fence were a man waits for them to come by. He informs Hyder that he and Rip drowned in the pond. Just as Hyder and Rip are about to enter what they think is heaven, the man at the gate tells Hyder that dogs aren't allowed and he has to take Rip down the road to another place. Hyder tells the man that any place too good for Rip is too good for him so they keep walking. They come to a lovely garden where they meet an angel that tells them that the place back down the road was hell and that they wouldn't let Rip in because they feared he'd sense the brimstone and try to warn Hyder. The angel brings Hyder and Rip through to heaven.
