A Love Story For Burgess

All I could think was, That dog
passed away before I was born.
This love story, for me, is about
the dog. Who did the dog go
home to after each day’s shoot?
How many more years did he
live? Or was this his final film?
I sit through the credits, and
Rufus was played by Burgess.

Well, let me tell you, he did
a bang up job. Just stellar. I
think about Burgess on and
off. I have a dream that he’s
well-taken care of in heaven.
In the dream, Burgess catches
a Frisbee and returns it to a
man. Just some man. Could
be any man.
