Symbolic Creature

Write a story that involves a symbolic creature of some kind, one who takes on a very important role in the life of a character. The creature can be alive or dead, but if dead, still figures prominently in the story. Here is my story “Guarding the Heart” originally published by the University of Kentucky. This story also appears in my collection “Alligators At Night”.
