Dogs Do


I thought of another story you should probably hear, but warning it is kind of gross at the end.

You remember little Ryan, poor child, lost both parents within one week. Some say his family was haunted or cursed, his mother dead in that dreadful fire and his father – well, who knows. You were the one who thought to visit him at his aunt’s and give him the golden lab puppy remember? I visited the other day and saw Ryan crying, but get this – he was crying not with grief but with joy as he held little Rocko close. I think you are right that for a broken heart, a small canine pal can accomplish the seemingly impossible.

The gross part. Before I turned to leave, not wanting to spoil the moment, you see, that dog took advantage of the hug to slobber all over the poor boy’s already-grimy face. “Ewww,” he said.

This is my fourth post for the A-Z challenge, a continuation from yesterday’s story, Cats Can.

  1. Allergic to cats but not dogs, that’s me. Last October, I said goodbye to my faithful German Shepard, Keyara. She was with our family for 14 wonderful years before her body decided it was time to go. I love dogs more than I can express, and while I’m not ready for another just yet, I love stories of puppies, dogs and love. Thank you.

  2. I love dogs. Even for their grossness. Luckily, my dog knows better than to give kisses, but she’ll always come when you tell her to come and get a hug.

  3. Adorable puppy! We unfortunately can’t have dogs, my hubby is highly allergic. I’ve been enjoying your posts. Keep up the great work!
