This is very, very nice. Very well done, very creative, very original. You pull this off with style. It is appreciated that you set the terms of the story up front: Dialogue is in bold. It is fiction. (That is funny... you thought it necessary to inform the reader that this story about a man resurrecting as a puppy is fiction.) You have a nice perspective and an engaging sense of irony.
