Yesterday and today were two end-of-the-year events for Amanda. The first one was her Monkeynastix. It's a movement program for children up to age 8. They do all kinds of things that include fine and gross motor skills. It's lots of fun.
We were driving home from this happy event when the traumatic event happened. It was only around 6 pm and there was still plenty of daylight. We were in our VW Micro Bus when Samantha and I were the first to witness a dog owner take the leash off of his dog, climb into the back seat of a vehicle, close the door, leaving the dog outside of the vehicle, and then the driver take off laughing. We saw him laughing because he drove right past us. The dog was frantic and ran into a busy intersection. Thankfully, the cars waited for him to get across safely. All of us in the car were horrified. We were so worried about the dog that we never saw the license plate.
Hubby got out of our car and tried to coax the dog to come with us. We wanted to make sure he got safely to the animal shelter. He ran away from Hubby and circled the area where he was last with his owner. Then he took off. Our house was close by, so we drove home and phoned the animal shelter's emergency number, but no one returned our call. This morning I phoned again, but there was very little that they or we could do. The lady told me that people do it all the time and that they are cruel. We prayed a lot for the dog yesterday and again today. I had peace this morning about the dog's situation, but that doesn't make the actions right of those people who abandoned him.
It's hard to switch gears after that story, but this evening was another happy event in that Amanda had her class concert. She loved being on stage. I'll share photos later. Today I'm sharing pictures of fresh flowers from my garden. Enjoy!
