When I stepped off the bus yesterday afternoon after a hard day of meetings, I was surprised by the long line of cars on my street. Had the media been alerted of my imminent arrival? Was it those damned paparazzi again (at least I was wearing make-up and nice clothes this time)?
No, it was…a puppy.
A beautiful little red pit bull puppy, to be precise. He was sitting happily in the middle of the road, stopping traffic.
His owners turned out to be two guys who were working on their truck in a driveway, and failed to notice their puppy’s absence. When they finally noticed and headed toward the little guy, he stretched out on his back and wiggled joyfully until they scooped him up and took him out of harm’s way.
