Tess And The Fox Hunt.
Tess and the Fox hunt.
It was two years since Tess had arrived as a puppy at the house where Billy lived. She had grown into a fine healthy dog and was still the best of friends with Billy.
Tess could always be seen playing with Billy and his friends. Often in the field at the back of Billy’s house.
Billy was moving quickly through his school years. He was learning lots of new things. He had also made lots of new friends.
Tess had found it strange at first, being left alone in the house, while Billy was at school. But she had also made new friends.
She was after all. A lot wiser than the tiny puppy who had arrived in a flurry of smiles and excitement. A year or two ago.
In the farm next door to Billy’s house lived a family that were normally travellers.
There they had 2 puppies that Tess had made friends with. She heard the men call them : Spike 1 and Spike 2. And she also learned that they were Pit Bull Terriers.
Tess knew that Spike 1 and Spike 2 were not treated well at all.
She had freedom enough to visit them often. She tried so much to help them. Tess didn’t know it, but the 2 dogs would long for the moment when she would put her nose through the bars and they would all nuzzle each other in true affection.
Often Tess would try to share her food with them. Then wait with them until they fell asleep.
Sometimes they were beaten and Tess would cry for the 2 Spikes. She would go home and get into her comfy bed, but she would cry all night for the 2 spikes.
Booze & Stuff..
Well I seem to have slipped back into my old pattern. Not as bad but bad enough for me to do a dry June. 🥃😡
