Born Free!

by Valerie Barker


Today was doggie day camp day. Steve and I loaded up in the car and Mom and Dad drove us to Petsmart. Once we arrived at Petsmart, Dad opened the back door of the car to get Steve. He thought that Mom was getting me out on the other side, but Mom was walking around the back of the car to get me out the same side as Dad was getting Steve out. I decided that it was a perfect opportunity for me. Dad had a hold of Steve's leash, but not mine, so I jumped out of the car and ran to the Petsmart. I waited for the front door to open, then I ran inside the store and I would have ran all the way back to the day camp area, but a Petsmart worker caught me. While I was running free, Mom was chasing after me yelling, "Kat! Here, Kat!" She couldn't catch me though because she was wearing her work shoes and they each have a stick on the bottom to make her taller and she can't run very fast in those shoes. Mom said she was really worried about me and that I could have gotten hurt. I was just trying to save time. I can get to day camp much faster if I'm not having to lead Mom around on her leash. I would never actually abandon her. We are the only girls in the house. We have to stick together to be the human and canine alphas!
