Once I was walking in an abandoned town, and I found a dog! It was a skinny dog that looked like it hadn't eaten for days. At first, it was shy and didn't come to me. Eventually it came. I picked the dog up and put it in the backseat of my Honda insight. It wasn't a big dog. It looked like it could have been a border collie mix. It sat in the back of my car without a problem and looked at me.
I drove to the nearest town and went to the emergency vet. I was talking to the dog in a soft voice all the way. “It’s going to be okay. I am going to get you some help. Everything will be fine.” The dog seemed to be listening. Its ears would perk up.
When we got to the emergency vet, we got to go back right away. The vet examined the dog.
“She looks healthy to me. She just needs some TLC. No microchip though. You should take her to the animal shelter,” the vet said. The dog started to whine at the words.
“You know what. I think, I will take her home with me.”
“It’s your decision.” said the vet.
I was back in my car with the dog around 10 minutes later. The dog was in the backseat with a look on its face that seemed to say “thank you.”
“You need a name! Don’t you? Or do you already have a name?” I said.
The dog seemed to nod its head.
“Is it Carry, Maggie, Lexi, Liz, Tara, Pru…” The dog nodded. “Your names Pru?”
The dog nodded or I mean Pru nodded.
“Well, nice to meet you Pru. We have a bit of a drive till we get to my home. I mean our home.” Pru smiled.
I drove in silence for about an hour until we made it to Duluth, Minnesota. I pulled into the driveway of my little house.
“Home sweet home,” I said. I got out of the car and opened up the door for Pru. She jumped down with ease. I lead her to the door and used my key to open the lock.
I stepped inside and Pru followed. I found the lightswitch and the living room was revealed.
“You need some food don’t you? I still have some from my dog, Cicely, who passed on a few months ago,” I said and walked towards the closet. I pulled out a big bag of dog food and a bowl. I filled it to the brim, and Pru ate it eagerly.
When she was finished, I said, “Should I give you a bath?”
Pru seemed to nod, slowly. So, I walked up the stairs to the bathroom with her on my heels. I filled up the tub with room temperature water and carefully lifted her in.
“You have a lot of fur,” I said as I poured the water over her. “Are you a border collie?”
Pru seemed to be telling me, yes. I was starting to get a feeling that she not only could understand people, but could communicate with them, too.
After Pru was bathed, I made her a bed on my floor and got into bed. “You can sleep down there,” I said. Pru whined and seemed to be saying, “I want to sleep up there.”
“Oh alright,” I said, and she jumped up and curled up next to me.
PS This wasn't proof read so I apologze for any mistakes. Also would it be okay if I continued this as a story on KT? I had a lot of fun with it and would like to write more. It is fine if not. I would understand. Also you could always make the prize a shoutout and best answer? I also hope to see more contests. I would enter almost every one! LOL
