|Merci, Sam & Buddy|
Merci: We missed Thankful Thursday last week, but we have a story for you this week..
Sam: A couple of nights ago it was cold and windy, so when we walked Jan, she was rushing to get home and she got in too big a hurry and lost Buddy.
Merci: We tried to stop to eat some - Jan calls them berries, a neighbor calls them seeds. Whatever they are, they drop off a tree and they're tasty, so we try to stop to eat some but Jan usually keeps us moving. That night, it was already dark and Jan said we had to keep moving so we didn't freeze.
Sam: So we did. We tried to tell her something was wrong but she just kept walking faster. For some reason when we reached the corner a block from home, Jan suddenly decided she wanted to do another short lap and did a rapid about face.
Merci: And got a good scare because there was a loose dog just a block away following us. She tightened her grip on our leashes and realized one of them was missing.
Sam: It was too dark for her to see what the dog looked like but she took off as fast as her old legs could carry her, yelling, "Buddy ... Buddy ... Buddy!" We covered half the distance before Buddy raised his head, looked around and asked, "How did you guys get lost? It's a good thing I found you."
Merci: And he came trotting toward us, bawling Jan out for wandering off while he was eating. And Sam kept repeating, "I tried to tell her. She wouldn't listen."
Buddy: I don't know what Jan's problem is but she gets in more trouble when I'm not around. I thought we'd all stopped to eat. Next thing I knew, Jan had wandered off with Sam and Merci and gotten lost. But I saved her. Sam and Merci too.
Sam: Oh, pish tosh, we didn't need saving. Well, Jan always needs saving. She's a human. But Merci and I were fine.
Buddy: You tell the story your way, I'll tell it mine. In the end, we're all thankful Jan is okay. What would she do without us?
