“Stray” Dog

Okay so anytime something weird and wacky happens I never have my camera.  But I was just walking down the street to get my laundry.  When I got to the main street, there was people shouting and singing, and I thought it was a protest, there were people waving flags and marching down the street.  I asked and found out that it was apparently actually a soccer team.  Weird, but no picture.

Then on my way back, I was minding my own business when I felt a slight pressure on the back of my leg.  I turned around and this little stray dog had jumped up on me.  When he saw me looking at him, he jumped up again, then proceeded to walk along beside me as I walked home.  At first I thought this was very strange.  There are many stray dogs around, I didn’t know why this particular one was taking an interest in me.  Maybe I smelled like dinner, but he was little and not scary.  Then after a few minutes, he ran off, and I didn’t think much of it.  Then a few houses later I found him waiting for me and he jumped up on me again.  Then it occurred to me: there are two dogs at the house.  I only pay attention to Lucas because he is way cooler, but this could be the other one.  He’s a mutt and this one is kinda the same colour I think… So I walk back to the house, with this random dog happily walking along side of me.  When I get back to the house, I ask them “is your dog missing?”

Apparently he ran out of the yard when the car was driving out and couldn’t get back in.


  1. We’re glad that you rescued the dog. Maybe you’re more interested in Lucas because he reminds you of your brother, home, …
