S.O.S

GRIN # 214

Save. Our. Sister.

Once every few months, someone rescues Sister–whether she needs it or not.

I’ve told you about Sister and how she likes to walk herself. She never goes far and most of the folks in the neighborhood know her. But every so often we get a good Samaritan.

Today, it was a girl of about 15 coming back from the pool with her little brother. From my office window, I watched Sister dart into a thicket of bushes pursued by the earnest girl, who was trying to see if Sister was a stray. Then Sis hightailed it back to our porch and the girl rang the bell. I always thank the rescuers.

There was also the time when a well-meaning walker went back home and got a leash and hooked up Sister and took her home, thinking she was lost. Then she was lost. We were worried. We found her a few hours later when we saw the woman walking Sister on a leash.

Jerry: “Hey! That’s my dog!”

The lady meant well, and I thanked her, too.

There have been a few folks who have put Sister in the backs of their cars and driven her home when she truly did wander too far off.

Sister thinks they’re all meddlers, but I’m glad folks are looking out for her.

It takes a village.

  1. Sweet Sweet Sister. I know she wants all those meddlers to leave her alone.

  2. I think Sister thinks it’s all F-U-N-N-Y. She has quite the personality. 🙂
