***********Continuing on from my previous diary entry.
The nice man drives me to a barn where he gets a little cardboard box & fills it with some straw. We then drive by a house where he stops & gets out. He tells me to wait. A dog in the yard starts barking at me & I's get scared. The man comes out with a bag & we drives off again. We soon stop again & the man lets me out of the truck. I's follows him into this enclosure that has 2 buildings on either end & a large enclosed yard in the middle. He opens one of the buildings & I's follows him inside. He puts the box filled with straw at one end of the room. Then he opens the bag & takes out a bowl & fills it with water. He takes out another bowl filled with kibble. "I'll check on you later-Ursula!" he chuckles & steps out. He leaves the door to the shed open but he closes the gate to yard. I's starts whining trying to get out & follow with him. "No, you stay here. You'll be safe & I'll check in on you." He gets in his truck & I's watch him drive away. I's alone again. I's remembers the kibble & how hungry I's is so I's goes inside & eats. After my meal & drink I's goes outside to keep a lookout for the nice man. I's decided to 'esplore the yard. There's an 'ineresting faint smell that at the time I couldn't quite figure out what it was. I's later discovers that this place used to be an ole' chicken coop. The building where I's staying is a storage shed & the building on the other side is where the chickens used to go in to roost & lay eggs.
The man did come back later to check on me & bring me more food & check to make sure I had water. He was so kind to me. He told me he couldn't take me home with him because he already had a dog & mainly because his wife would have a fit if he brought home another one. He said he'd figure something out but in the meantime I'd have to stay here. Then he left & I's alone again. When it got dark I's goes inside & crawls into the little box of straw & goes to sleep. The man had cut one side of the box down a little bit to make it easier for me to jump in & out of.
For the next 2 days my life was as follows: The man would come in the morning with food & fresh water, he'd stay with me for a little while & pet & talk to me then he'd leave. He sometimes checked on me during the day. But most of the time I's alone. I's wanted to be with the man so one day I's discovers a hole in the gate & I's escapes thru it. I's just wanted to go find that man! I walks & walks & soon I's lost again. I's back on a lonely paved path & I's lost. Oh why did I leave that chicken coop! The voice in my brainy brain says,'Oh little one what have you done!"
