The car door was opened and I was quickly picked up and tossed out. Not sat down gently, no words were spoken, just tossed. Where the heck was I now? The car wheels turned and peeled off out of the gravel driveway. The whole thing was terrifying to me and I took off like a shot. I ran through a backyard where I saw a little girl on a swing and dove into some bushes to hide. Catching my breath, I peered around wondering what just happened. I heard the sweet little voice of the girl calling me and she said the name Louie. That sounded nice and eventually I crept out and made a beeline just to her. I was very happy to see people and be pet and to be cuddled but they could see right away something was wrong with me. I was kind of skinny and a little rough looking but it was my eyes that caught their attention. They were very weepy and looked very sad.
