I didn't like that man, he was a mean ol' phart. I was only a baby ferpetesake! So how'd I know that his old floor wasn't for making piddle-puddles on?? Anyway, I wanted my human mom. I knew she was someplace.. just didn't know where, so one day when I was tossed out into the yard, AGAIN, I took off looking for my mom.
It was easy enough, the mean ol' man didn't have a gate, so I just left. The sidewalk was kinda downhill so seeing as how I was only about 7 weeks old and didn't have much leg length, I took the easy way, down the hill.
It was kinda scary, 'cause it was a REALLY busy street with lots of trucks and cars and motorcycles and noise. Oh, my gosh, it was scary, but I just kept on running.. well, if you could call it a run, 'cause I was just a baby, remember?
Anyway, down the street a'ways, a car pulled over and a woman got out and knelt down on the sidewalk and patted her knee and called to me saying, "C'mon baby.. it's ok, c'mon sweetie, come to momma.."
It was HER! It was my MOM! I took off towards her as fast as my little legs could pump.. and she waited with her arms out, hands towards me and I ran right up to her and she scooped me up and held me oh, so close and talked sweet sounds and I KNEW it was my MOM!
But.. but.. she started walking back to the place that I ran away from!! When she walked into the yard the mean ol' man came out'a the house and he was SOOOO mad! He yanked me from my momma's arms and started hitting me AGAIN with his fist.. again and again he hit me in the head. Boy, I was getting dizzy! In the meantime, I could hear my mom yelling at the mean ol' man telling him to stop hitting the puppy! Whew..he finally stopped and my mom started talking to him and trying not to make him any madder. The ol' phart doubled up his fist at my Mom, threatening her, while he was holding me by my neck and then I heard him say, "Ok lady, if you want the son-of-a-b****, then TAKE him", and he threw me at my momma.. But she was a good catcher.
Mom grabbed me and held me so close I almost couldn't breathe!! The ol' phart grumbled and cussed at my mom some more and then went back into his house. Momma loosened her hold on me a little and buried her face in my fur as I snuggled into her neck. Her face was wet, and I could hear her saying, "It's ok.. it's ok...he won't hurt you anymore.. it's ok.. " and then Mom started walking to her car, still holding me real close..
I found my Mom and we were going home..
