Sprinkler Dog

Sprinkler Dog
A big fluffy dog ran through a group of sprinklers, jumping while the water soaked his fur. He had no collar, no tags, and no owner. That is how my parents found my first dog Nelson, and that was how Nelson dug his way into my parents hearts and stuck there forever. A few weeks after being found the fluffy dog was part of the family, but he had no name. So my dad thought and thought when something hit him, he decided to name the dog after the sprinkler system he was romping in. That was how Nelson became Nelson. After settling into his new home Nelson became to favor many things including people, but on the top of his list were tennis balls, and lettuce. He almost always had one of those yellow furry balls in his mouth, and when he did his tail would wag like crazy! Knocking over everything that dare come in his way. There was only one thing that Nelson loved more then food and tennis balls and that was babies. Since my twin brother and I were born only a few years after Nelson arrived, it was paradise to that fluffy dog. Nelson would watch over us with his big dark brown eyes, ready to give us a big sloppy kiss at any moment. When Nelson wasn’t on kiss alert he was on strict babysitting duty. He would let us rest our heads on his soft curly fur while he scanned the area for baby nappers. If my brother and I ever broke out crying Nelson would be an automatic baby monitor and lift up his big head and let out a strong howl, alerting my parents to the problem. Over the years as my brother and I grew older, and Nelson grew wiser, our family acquired two new members. First came Evan, and a few years later Grace joined the clan, which made Nelson a very happy dog. At the age of 16 Nelson was a very old and wise pup, while I was a energetic second grader but he put up with me…..most of the time. Nelson lived out his last few years snuggling with babies, eating lettuce, and playing with tennis balls, his specialties. He did this until one faithful day in late 2000. On that sorrow filled day I knew Nelson was not okay and my mother wasn’t either, because the night before Nelson could hardly walk to his own bed. So my mother slept with him on the carpet covered floor, while their minds relived all the good memories they shared together. Though no one in my family wanted to say goodbye to our beloved Sprinkler dog we all knew it was his time to go. He was almost 17, he had started to get cancer, and he would hardly eat any food. So on that miserable weekend morning my mother and father broke the bad news to Evan, Carter, and me. They told us that Nelson was very old and very sick, and that he would be happier in heaven playing with all the babies and tennis balls he wanted. So The three of us watched as my father loaded Nelson into the back of the car, and Nelson who normally hated car rides just laid there like the good old boy he was. All four of us even little Grace gave our personal babysitter one last kiss, and he gave us one back. After saying our goodbyes Evan, Carter, and me walked over to our neighbor Carol’s house. Once inside we ran to her living room window and watched as our mom, dad, and tiny Grace pulled out of the drive way and drove to the animal hospital. I know that I will never forget that dayand I will never forget Nelson.
Nelson always watched over me, now I know he is looking down on me from heaven. Waiting for the day I join him in heaven. Waiting for the day I can play ball with him once again.

This story was written by my my girl Abby she had to write a essay about some one special for her creative writing class and she picked me! i feel so special! (sorry it is so long)
