Alone time

My cousin died leaving her Chow dog, Molly. Her sister, Lee, might have adopted Molly but Molly was too big and rambunctious. Lee found a Chow rescue home a few hours away. At the rest stop, I held the leash as Molly slipped her collar and ran into the dense woods. I was distraught. Lee wept. We called Molly’s name and waited… an hour… then two. We were minutes from pulling away when Molly broke from the woods, happy to see us. Maybe Molly needed some alone time. Maybe Lee, too. Lee said, “Come on Molly, let’s go back home.”
