This week, Charli Mills’s prompt was to write about a disabled Vet and a newly released prisoner who trained a dog named Buttercup to be of service to that Vet. Here is what I came up with. Make sure you connect with a terrific writing community on the ranch, the Carrot Ranch!
Gail leaned over in her wheelchair and smiled at the furry little family.
“Buttercup, you’re such a good mother! Your loving pups will one day mean as much to others as you mean to me!”
Gravel crunched under the weight of truck tires. Loretta was here. Gail couldn’t breathe. It was time to say goodbye.
“Well, here they are, Loretta. Five enthusiastic recruits for the program. I’m sure the ladies who will train them will do as wonderful a job as you did with Buttercup!”
“Thank you, Gail. I get more out of this program than words can say!”
