A Short Story

A drabble, really.

When they told me that Lucy the Italian Water Dog was terrified of cats, I didn't really believe them.

Turns out, it's true.

We were walking along today, minding our own business, when a big orange cat comes out of an open door and hisses and spits at us. Apparently we got too close to his territory, even though we had no idea he was there.

I processed all of this after the fact though, because when it happened all I was aware of was being dragged down the sidewalk so Lucy could cower behind a flowerbox.

After the fact, I had to laugh at her because the irony was too great. But I did give her an extra treat for surviving her traumatic ordeal.
