A Runaway Puppy

By Jason L. (12 years old)



It was a lovely Sunday evening.  Tree leaves rustled in the gentle breeze and bees buzzed as they flitted from flower to flower at the Garden Park.  Little James skipped merrily along the pavement and Blackie, his adorable puppy ran alongside him, barking encouragement.

Out of the blue, an orange Frisbee flew past them.  Blackie caught sight of it and as fast as a hare, he sprinted after it, forcing his young master to let go of his leash. James chased after his puppy but his short legs could not catch up with his wayward puppy.  He soon lost sight of Blackie as he disappeared behind a hedge of bushes.  Greatly dismayed, he ran towards the hedges while calling out his pet’s name but there were no answering yelps from the puppy.

Fully exhausted, he plopped down onto the ground and sobbed desperately. Soon, a concerned crowd gathered around him and asked him why he was crying.  “My dog has run away!” he whimpered. Feeling sorry for the young boy, everyone began to look for the puppy. After a while, someone spotted Blackie at the water fountain, trying to catch butterflies.

James quickly ran towards his pet and hugged him tightly.  His tear-stricken face lit up with a huge grin as he continued to cuddle and pat his beloved Blackie. After thanking everyone in the crowd gratefully for their assistance, James and Blackie went home.
