"Zombie" Part III (the finale)

Tonight the third and final segment of my speculative fiction short story "Zombie" went up on The Darker Half.

A bite:
The dog finished eating, licked the bowl, licked his chops, and looked up at her. His dog-mom.
“Sit,” she said. It came out more as a high-pitched sob, but he understood and sat. Ever trusting, obedient, and eager to please. He gazed up at her with unabashed adoration.
She caressed his head a couple more times, then grabbed his collar. Her hands shook. This didn’t feel right. But she’d wasted too much time already, and she didn’t see any other way. She brought the knife under his throat.
