The Dog in the Daisies
Cindy saw movement in her flower bed. Wondering what it was, she crept up to investigate. Among the daisies she found a dog lying there. It was a Labrador that looked emaciated and dehydrated.
“You poor thing!” Cindy said stroking it. She ran back to the farmhouse and brought back some food and water. The dog slowly lapped up the water, but it was a while before it touched the food. Jess came to see what Cindy was doing.
“We should keep them.” Cindy told her.
“So long they don’t belong to someone. Every good farm has a dog.”
This was written with the prompt a dog in the daisies provided by the February 6 Carrot Ranch Flash Fiction Challenge.
