I am pretty sure nothing could surprise me. Well sort of sure. Every day is something different.
I am walking through the parking lot on my way back to the office. The yard is empty no people milling around for the first time all day. Except for one person….He was abut 2 years old or so cute little kid sitting with his feet in the drain gutter in front of the kennel that housed a litter of puppies. He wasn’t doing anything bad just sitting there talking to them. No other people anywhere.
“Where are your parents” I asked him and he responded “not here” I am thinking to myself here we go. I asked him how he got here and he said with his grandpa and kept sitting there watching the puppies. He thought his grandpa was in the office “but I am not allowed to go in there” I told him that he couldn’t be out here all by himself so we had to go find him. “I’m not by myself now you are here and can watch me” was his response. I told him we were going to find his grandpa and he said again that he wasn’t allowed to go in there. My response to him was that I was the boss and I said he could. So he went. Very polite nice kid.
The adult who was in charge of him and left him alone in an animal shelter parking lot….. bless his heart.
