I made a new friend today. As I was walking home from the farmer's market, I took a detour through some different neighborhoods. A cute little dog started following me. I made a few turns to see if he'd keep up, and he did. I even went into a store, and he was there waiting for me when I got out. He made it all the way to my house, despite the other neighborhood dogs trying to scare him away.
I figured it was over when I got through my gate. But he managed to climb through the bars! (Luckily none of the neighborhood dogs can do that). I tried a few things to get him to leave. I put water outside, which he went to. But he always found his way back between the bars of the gate.
For a moment, I was tempted to keep him. But I knew I couldn't. What would I do with him?
I left him alone outside for awhile, thinking he'd eventually get hungry and leave on his own. Then, when my roommate went out, he followed her. I don't think he'll be back.
I already miss him.
