What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I wrote this book for my grandchildren who love animals.
They loved it and recommended it to their school library.
It has now become popular on many sites for children's books.
I watched as he left the house that day. He left the latch on the gate unlocked. It was as if he did that purposely so that I could leave. That was my chance. I was going to run away, He threatened to kill me if he came back and found me at his home. I was not staying around to be killed. I made up my mind to do as he demanded. There had to be a better life out there.
I waited a few minutes after he left. I walked slowly to the gate and kicked it open with my right leg. I was free. I did not know where I would go. All I knew was that I no longer wanted to live with that cruel man.
I tried to walk at the side of the road as there were cars speeding up and down the street. I had walked a short distance and I heard someone shout ‘dog catchers.”
I looked around as a net covered me and dragged me for a few seconds.
I heard a soft voice say, “That is my dog. Please pass her to me.”
“She was roaming the streets. It is our job to pick up stray dogs,” came the reply from the man in the van.
“I am sorry. I left the gate open by mistake. I was looking for her. Can I have her please?” she asked gently.
“Take her, and be careful next time. We don’t usually do this, but I am giving you a chance. Keep your dog inside your yard, lady.” he replied. He must have been swayed by her gentle but firm voice.
I looked at the woman who saved me. Why did she do this? She did not know me. I never saw her before in my life. She was pretty with long black hair. She told me to hop into her car. I stared at her. I had never driven in a car before, and she had a nice one. “Hop into the car. Don’t be scared,” she said.
I did as she said and hopped into the car. The car seat was soft and leathery. I felt like a princess.
“I am taking you to a safe place. We will clean you up, feed you, check out your health, and take good care of you,” she said to me. I was elated, but I could not answer her. They were going to feed me. That sounded like music to my ears. I was afraid to lick her to express my thanks. She looked clean and pretty like a doll and she was so kind.
She continued, “I lied to the dog catchers. I knew that they were taking you to a horrible place. I pretended that you were my dog so I could save you.”
I wagged my tail in glee and she saw me in her rear view mirror doing that. She knew that I was thankful. She kept her eyes on the road and reached out with her left hand to pat my head.
We arrived at our destination. I could not believe my eyes. It looked like a beautiful estate with lots of fruit trees and flowering plants.
There were many dogs running around and playing. Did I die and go to heaven?
Persons were bathing dogs, and others were playing ball with other dogs. It seemed like lots of fun.
My saviour turned to me and said, “My name is Kathy. I am in charge of this place. It is a sanctuary for homeless dogs. You will be safe here. Jump out. I will take you to see the vet. She will check you out and see if you need any special treatment.”
Special treatment, I thought. I just need plenty of good food. It was as if she read my mind. She added, “Of course you will get plenty of good food here.”
I was in luck.
