IF - wrapped


When I was about 8 or 9, we were visiting my grandmother and I took our dog for a walk around the neighborhood. A large dog, German Shepherd, if I remember clearly, was on a near by porch as we walked by and of course, started barking his fool head off when he saw our dog. She got so scared, she ran in circles around me, wrapping the leash around my ankles, then took off. I took a header, landing on the concrete sidewalk and broke my wrist!
I spent the rest of the summer in a cast and never took the dog for a walk again.

We adopted a dog from the pound a couple months ago and that is EXACTLY how I look when I walk her! (my husband's friend called him the other day and said, "I saw your dog dragging your wife around.") I haven't broken anything though - YET!
Great illustration!

Dogs can cause such a ruckus! Love how expressive your character is (and her little knees).

Thankyou for your lovely comment! Poor you! I remember my husband taking his Grandma's dog for walk! We only got to the end of the street as she was taken him for a walk.
