Turn around…

Maybe if I follow her for a while, she’ll notice me. I bet she would share a drop of water from that bottle that is dangling off her back.


It’s been too long since that little boy shared his meal. But his father threw a rock at me. I wonder if the kid will take after him.


I would try to make a sound, but my throat still hurts, the cuts from the chain are too deep. Still, I was lucky to get away.

Oh, she stopped…

I never knew human hands could offer a gentle touch.

  1. Well done indeed! Your story certainly helps me relate to the down-trodden looking dog and takes me through several stages of what it has experienced without telling me directly. I like it. 🙂

  2. Dear Lore`, Awesome story! I love stories (and books) that start out with the point of view from an animal – “Switch” by Sandra Brown (I hope I remembered the title correctly) I loved. You are so good at penning a tale – honestly grand! Nan 🙂
