My aunt had come over to drop off her dog for my family and I to dog-sit, I was 13 year old.
Yep no problem, have fun on your trip!
Please take care of Coco for me Nalin, I'll be back in two weeks.
It had been an easy week and a half dog-sitting and today, my mom woke me up early in the morning and told me to take Coco out for a walk so I decided to take her to our lake.
This was when things went bad. I was so tired from staying up the night before, that I forgot to grab her leash and just walked her without it. My eyes fell shut for a little and when I opened them again, she was gone.
I searched for her, screaming her name throughout the neighborhood. I had searched for about half an hour now and I was losing hope.
COCO! PLEASE WHERE ARE YOU! COME BACK HOME! COCO!
I told my parents the situation and they yelled at me. They said that I have to try asking the neighbors tomorrow.
Ugh, I'm so stupid! My Aunt is going to kill me, I have three days to find Coco. I'm such an idiot, I should've just focused on watching her.
When I woke up the next morning to go ask our neighbors, a miracle happened. I opened the door and Coco was laying there sleeping. I was so relieved that she was okay.
Oh my God! Coco! You're here! I'm so happy that you came home!
I promise I'll be more attentive and take more responsibility buddy. So, are you hungry?
