I want to read it!
For me it was a short story for an in class essay that I wrote. My teacher read it out loud to my class which was embarrassing lol, but she read it because she liked it.
It was about a dog who had an abusive owner and at the end of the story the dog ran away.
I was quite young when I wrote it but I drew inspiration from people who used to sit outside my window on a bench and be loud lol. Haven’t seen them in a while. They probably weren’t horrible to their dogs but the character in the story was. It was all implicit from the dog’s perspective. The whole story was me describing different scents because I thought dogs used that sense a lot lol. It was quite heart warming. I also drew inspiration from a cat story where a family had a cat over the summer and then left their cat at their summer house when they went back to the city. Oh I also got inspired by “My life as a dog” and the Laika stuff.
I started with the end which was kind of cool. I remember that the setting was a park I used to play in.
