Opening Narration

ynopsis

Hyder Simpson lives with his wife and his hound Rip in the backwoods. Mrs. Simpson does not like having the dog indoors, but Rip saved Hyder's life once, and Hyder won't be parted from him. Mrs. Simpson has seen an omen and warns Hyder not to go hunting that night. When Rip dives into a pond after a raccoon, Hyder jumps in after him, but only the raccoon comes up out of the water. Next morning, Hyder and Rip wake up next to the pond. When they return home, Hyder finds that neither his wife, the preacher, nor the neighbors can hear him or see him—they seem to think that he and Rip are dead.

Walking along the road, he encounters a fence he doesn't recognize, and decides to follow it. Presently, both come to a gate. The gatekeeper explains that Simpson can enter the Elysian Fields, but Rip will have to stay outside, as dogs are not allowed in. Angrily, Simpson takes Rip and goes on down the "Eternity Road" rather than enter the gate without Rip, where he meets an angel whose job is to bring them to Heaven, and who is looking specifically for "Hyder Simpson and his dog Rip." The angel explains that the gate was actually the entrance to Hell. Rip was not allowed in because, though a man can be fooled, Rip would have been able to smell the brimstone, and "even the Devil can't fool a dog!"

The angel also tells Hyder that there'll be a raccoon hunt in Heaven that night, "right after the square dance," and assures him that his wife, who will be coming shortly, will not have any trouble with the devil up the way.
