As I headed to my trails today I noticed that the parking lot was full of cars. This happens a lot on my trails but today those cars looked different than the cars I usually see.
Is that a police car?
At first I thought maybe some police officers were taking a break and decided to go for a hike.
But then I started looking around at all the other vehicles in the parking lot.
I saw Sheriff’s vehicles.
Several of them.
I started getting worried.
I hadn’t done anything wrong so I thought maybe my person had and they were looking for her.
I thought maybe I shouldn’t take her on my trails after all.
My person insisted we go for a walk, but I worried the whole time. What would I do if those police officers and sheriff’s deputies found her and took her away?
I’d be out on my trails alone.
Alone? Hey, that might be fun. I could run free without having to take my person on a leash.
Oh, but wait a minute. Maybe those police officers are trying to trick me into running free so they can pick me up.
I think I’ll head back home now with my person – where it’s safe.
I didn’t do anything officer. Truly I didn’t.
