Darris, a friend of mine, and I recently helped a little lost girl, Nakita.
I thought you would like to hear her story.
To the Rescue!
Nakita sat on one side of the fence and the puppy romped around on the other side. The puppy was so cute it made the child’s heart sing. It was fluffy and white, with a patch of brown over one eye and ear. Nakita wanted to pick him up and cuddle him so very much. She had wanted a puppy of her very own, ever since the day she saw one in the window of the pet store in town. This puppy looked so much like that one.
She stuck her hand through the webbing of the chain-link fence and the little bundle of fur ran over to her and rubbed its head on her hand; just like it was her very own. This brought such a big smile to Nakita's face. When she giggled it licked her and whined with excitement. Its tale wagged so fast, it made its rump wiggle excitedly. Nakita could see it wanted to be with her as much as she wanted to be with it.
She tickled its soft ears. “Where did you come from?”
I often help himself to the fondue fountain when I join Theresa at the Portland Chocolate Fest! Well, Wolfool caught me at it and actually took a picture. *grins sheepishly with chocolate dripping from muzzle*
