The first dog in my life

Old Beauty

by prettybluebirds

Head hanging, old Beauty crawls into the woodshed to sulk. The children are playing with the new puppy. No one notices Beauty is gone. She sadly drifts off to sleep

Little arms around her neck wake the old dog. "I still love you best," a little girl says. "Always."
