Rescued Release Day!!
Teaser from A Dog on Her Doorstep
Emily Janssen stood at the bottom of her driveway and stared at her front step. Even from fifty feet away, she could see that the black and-brown lump blocking her front door was a dog.
A big dog.
A big, hairy dog.
She wasn’t afraid of dogs, though she always took care when approaching one she didn’t know. That was just responsible. She was just… confused. Why on earth would a dog choose her front step? There was nothing to entice a pup to her townhouse. No other dogs—or cats, for that matter—or treats or toys or kids looking to play.
More was the pity, but who had time for all that, anyway?
The dog finally noticed her, sat up, and let out a deep woof accompanied by a swooshy, waggy tail.
She sighed, but couldn’t help but be charmed.
“Well, hello to you too,” she said starting up the driveway. “And who might you be? Aren’t you pretty?”
The swishy tail swished faster as the dog stood, and its back end started to wiggle. She recognized the breed easily. Bernese Mountain Dogs were lovely, but large. If this guy decided to jump up to say hello, she’d find herself on her butt. – Excerpt from Doggie on Her Doorstep by Donna Alward
