It's Okay to Cry
Our sweet dog is gone – like gone forever! I thought I would never get to see him again. I am just so sad that those people just think that a little eight month old puppy will hurt them.
Yes, he did bark and hair went up, but that just means he is just protecting us because he does not know them. They are strangers to him.
He did not hurt them. He just barks, so they said that they are scared of an eight month old puppy! So Grandpa had to give him away. I knew he went to a good home, but I didn't know where. Grandma didn't know where he went, either.
One day Grandma and I went the Amish store and Grandma saw a dog. She said, "Be careful, there's a dog."
So I opened the door and Kiah, our dog, ran at me and jumped into the truck. He sat in the backseat, just where he used to sit. I was crying so hard and saying, "No! No! No!" I was so shocked.
There he was in the truck, ready to go home. But we could not get him out of the truck. It was so hard for me.
I met his new owner. He is a friend of Grandpa's. He's an older man who just lost his best friend – a dog, like Kiah. This man got Kiah out, but he did not want to leave us.
Gramma went in the store by herself so I could have my time alone with Kiah. I got him out of the car. When it was time to go his owner had to hold the dog back because he tried to run after the car.
When we got home I ran to Grandpa and told him Kiah was there. I was still crying and he said he knew.
I was still crying and I will never forget that day. 🙁
PS It's okay to cry!
