Daddy & his Pedro (SHORT)

I am just sharing this new Pedro story with a few other people also. I hope you like it. Pedro was a Chihuahua.xx

I thought of another funny thing my Dad did with Pedro. My Dad had Emphysema. He was unable to walk more than across the room, without huffing. But he was not on Oxygen, I don't know why. Anyway, Pedro needed to run. My Dad got an old fishing pole out of the shed, and my Mom asked him what in the world was he going to do with that??? He said he was going to take Pedro to the park. He would hook up Pedro's collar or harness to his fishing line and then tell Pedro, "Run, boy, run!!" Pedro ran free as the wind. And wasn't shy, or didn't look back. He was a nervous dog as Chihuahuas can be, but he trusted my Dad 100% of the time. When Daddy wanted him to come back he just started reeling the line in. Many folks in the park saw this and were impressed. My Dad was a guy who was not only book smart, but practically smart. He'd figure out the best and easiest way for things to be done. Almost an inventor at times!

That's a great story. I can just see Pedro being hauled in until another day. That's how a lot of things get invented, someone looking for an easier way to do something.

I loved you fine story about the dog and you Father!
We have a 'service animal' Rottweiler named "Deuce" who is our dear friend and guardian. When my dear wife was recently in the hospital for over 2 months with open heart surgery-- Deuce was my only friend [except Jesus].
