Like any other day, the twin sisters and I were impatiently watching the clock in our classroom, each moment going so slowly……tick, tick, tick. We were in such a hurry to get out of our class because there was a furry surprise waiting for us behind our school.
There, behind the classroom buildings, was a dog and her litter of black and white puppies, and…. they were soooooo cute.
When their mom wasn't there we always gave them food but one day I said “why we don't take them to our home “?
So we decided to take the three puppies to our homes, and on the way, we played with our dogs but I found people looked at us in very strange way, so I hid my dog in my bag
And about twin girls I don't like to remember how their uncle punished them in street......
He couldn't see my dog but he could see the puppies that each of the twin sisters held in their arms and made them let them go.
After that we had just one dog, and we started to play with it but suddenly I saw one of our neighbors and he said “hey little Amy”
“it's dirty…don't touch it”
I said “nooo..., it's so cute look…” and I kissed it.
She shouted nooooo!!!
I laughed and we ran and when I arrived my house, my older sis opened the door.
She shouted at me and then went away. I said “it's just a puppy no more.” Suddenly
I felt a painful push on my back.
Yeah, it was my older brother with more than ten people beside him.
He hit me and threw my dog to the ground, then sent me to the bathroom, where I sat silently sobbing, worried about my dog.
I heard the voice of my brother and what he was saying to my mom “you know how scared I was when I saw all these people in front of our door, and I thought our house was on fire again.
My mom said “I found why our meat has been disappearing from the refrigerator these days” even though I had just brought the dog home that day.
It was just a dog but at that time people looked at dogs as a dirty animal.
But now times have changed and attitudes about dogs have changed and most people will buy a dog for either themselves or their children.
The worst thing about this is that now I have this fear about dogs, all due to the trauma I felt during my childhood experience with this puppy.
I miss my childhood, and even though sometimes things were hard, I still miss it.
Dedicated to brave Amy.
