Today my daddy and I walked around the neighborhood collecting bags of food as part of the Cub Scouts “Scouting for Food” program. It was raining pretty hard. We took the food we collected over to St. Joseph Food Pantry.
At one of the first houses we walked by to collect food, the people were outside with their dog. They were headed into their car. We grabbed the bag of food on their porch, and they said that they had just lost their dog. They asked us that if we see a dog just like the one they had with them, we should bring it back to them. So we told them we’d look for it.
As we walked around the neighborhood in the rain, looking for bags and the dog, I remembered about the legend that can find any animal. The legend is really long, and to tell you the whole thing I would have to write for my whole life. But I told my Daddy the beginning: “First, you have to find the white flowers that look like a cub scout food bag.”
We had just passed a house where we thought there was a bag, but it was just flowers. So we headed back over to that house. When we got there, we turned around to go back, and there was the dog! It looked just like the other dog. She was very friendly, and she let Daddy pick her up. We looked at her collar, and her name is Dori.
So we carried her back to her house. The people weren’t home yet, so we put the dog in the little kennel on their porch. Hopefully when they come back home and see their dog, they will be very happy.
Dori is a small dog. She looks like a weiner dog, but she has long curly fur. She is reddish brown and has floppy ears. She was very wet from the rain, and I think she was glad to be home. We didn’t have a camera with us, so when we got home I drew this picture of her.
