A girl with her dog story: A trip to Home Depot


Once upon a time there was a woman who lived in the country. In October of 2017 when she was out doing last minute farming before cold weather hit when she looked up to see a dog sitting on his haunches staring at her. She stopped the tractor and the two regarded each other. After a couple of minutes the dog ran to her side and although he enjoys running through the woods he always comes home to her. Falkor is his name….

Today is a beautiful spring day. I spent it working on my shed when I realized I needed more wood. Now, a trip to Home Depot means taking Falkor with me. Road trip!

When I called to him, he was laying underneath a utility trailer and as big as he is I am surprised he doesn’t get stuck under there. Anyway, after struggling to get out from underneath he finally manages and runs over to jump in the backseat of the truck. Now, I being the conscientious mama rolled the windows down in the truck. We all know dogs like the put their head out the window and lag their tongues. Well, Murphy’s Law proved me wrong. He laid in the backseat the whole way there.

 When inside Home Depot many people wanted to pet him and remarked on what a well behaved dog is was. He wagged his tail and sat on command, but I found it interesting that when we stood still he was pressed against my legs. I wonder if it is out of protectiveness or he wanted to make sure he wasn’t abandoned again? I may never know, but I sure love this dog and it makes me angry when I think someone abandoned him to survive on his own.

Until next time,
K-Trina and Falkor
