"Come on Pip, time for your walk." I said, exhaustion full in my throat. The dog barked jumping up and down. Pip was a liver and white English springer. I had her for almost a year, but she was so excitable that it was terrible walking her. I clipped her lead around her neck and then it was like a transformation. As soon as she hears the lead clip click, she turns in to a husky. No stopping her when she goes. My hand grips her lead tight and I yank her back. I know it was cruel on her but it sent her the message, she didn't pull for a while.
We had been walking through the woods, I had lost sight of the dog so whistled and heard her bark. I smiled and then walked on. the birds sung their fabulous songs, where as they hid from the above threats. Taunting the starving sparrow-hawks and kites. My phone buzzed violently in my pocket, it was from Georgia.
"Hey what's up?" I had said casually down the phone,
"Toni, where are you?"
"In the woods why."
"Come over to my house, bring Pip."
The line went dead, I whistled over to Pip and we ran over to her house. What would be so important that I would have to come over to her's? Only one way to find out. My feet pounded the earth harder and faster, the ground flew by.
