I Want the Girl to be Happy

May 9, 2011  

Stubby lived his life on a chain until one day he broke free and ran away. A Good Samaritan found him and brought him to the shelter. Now his real story begins…

I woke up and the girl was there, in front of me. Carl helped her get me out of my cage and we went for a walk. Under the tree in front of the shelter she started to cry and hugged me and said she couldn’t take me home because her landlord won’t let her have a pit bull.

Carl comes by to see how we are, and tells the girl that she can sit outside with me for as long as she likes. “There’s no more room inside, anyway,” Carl says quietly. The girl nods, and tears slip down her face.

Carl gives me ears a scratch and goes back inside.

The girl starts crying harder, and I stand up and lick her face. I want to make her feel better. But she just keeps crying. The only thing I want is for her to be happy.
