A Doggy Tale in 3 Acts
Orion’s favorite friend, Ozzie the miniature Aussie, shows up at the front garden gate. It is open because it is Thursday and the gardeners are here. Ozzie barks to get Orion and Frances’ attention. Frances grabs some treats for Ozzie and edges her way out of the small front-door doggie gate so Orion can’t slip out.
Orion, being extremely quick and agile, shoots past Frances at the front-door gate, past Ozzie at the garden gate, makes a sharp right, and is headed down the street at full speed. Frances, now horrified that Orion is once again loose and moving way too fast for her to even get to the garden gate, is frozen for a few seconds thinking about what to do.
Then the Sue Myles Emergency Response kicks in. Frances calls the emergency password, at the top of her voice. But Orion by now is half way down the block. What happens next is astounding. Orion does an instant 180 on 2 paws, and races back toward the gate. He blasts past Ozzie at the garden gate and into the waiting-arms of treat-rewarding Frances.
Sue predicted that one day Orion would be known by a new name: ‘Orion Who Runs Like the Wind Back to Frances.’ That day has finally arrived!!!
