Phenous was a railroad worker, who did a really good job. One day, while working he had a really bad accident and had to go to the hospital.
Phenous had many serious injuries to his body, so he had to stay at the hospital for a really long time. While he was there he began to really miss his dog and asked to see it. The nurses told him no dogs allowed at the hospital. When he was able to leave he had to walk with a cane.
When Phenous returned to work his coworkers were mean to him because he was gone for so long and could no longer work the same way. After this Pheneous lived for 11 more years before he died.
