Wall of Death by Justin Mitchell
Domino’s journey into the Underworld
This piece is a depiction of our smallest dog’s adventure down a 25 metre length of drain pipe buried 3 feet under a field. After having gone missing for 7 hours we thought we heard the tiniest wimper come from a ditch in the corner of a wood. All we could find was the opening to a pipe barely bigger than the dog. After some digging ,and as it was getting dark , we resorted to phoning the Fire brigade who sent out an assessor who agreed that he could hear faint breathing in the pipe. Within minutes we had several fireman digging up the field. An hour or two later a rabbit was produced from the end of the pipe which we had located under a mound of mud and earth. Perhaps that was the source of the noise, we all thought and were about to chuck the towel in. Seconds later out popped a very muddy and exhausted little Jack Rusal who had travelled face to face with the rabbit the whole length of the pipe under the field. She could only go forwards, back was not an option . Lucky dog.
