These are letters we received about stories that appeared in the October issue of L. Moral dilemma Should I give the dog back? We passed by a dumpster and behind it was a shivering dog. It was a small white dog; at least it used to be white, now its fur was dirty and covered in oil from sleeping under cars.
It also had a tattered pink leash. I began to get near it but it started backing up.
It winced and limped away from us. We went to the party. Despite the rain, everyone was having fun dancing and laughing. As we began to leave, the dog limped toward us. My dad put her near the fire to warm up and fed her some meat. We all decided she should come home with us since it was obvious she was lost.
It would have stayed with my aunt except my cousin was allergic. After she was clean, her fur was white and curly but neatly trimmed. We played with her and had a lot of fun. One day as I was walking home I noticed a flier. It had a picture of the dog we found saying it was missing.
I continued to walk home and contemplated whether or not the dog was her and if so, should I return her? I enjoyed having fun with her. I pondered my dilemma and reasons why I should.
Her owner was probably worried about her and it was the right thing to do. I then began to convince myself that that had not been the right dog. But it was pointless; deep inside I knew it was. A few days later it was pouring rain and there was a knock on the door.
Outside was a woman in a thick coat. Then I imagined the woman out in the pouring rain, going from door to door looking for her dog. She never lost hope even though it had been weeks.
I knew what I had to do. I gave back the dog, who was very happy to see her. As I watched them walking away, I knew I had made the right choice. Instead of being selfish I had told the truth and I felt much better than I would have if I had lied. One of my friends is friends with the party host, a football player from my school.Writing Contests - Poetry, Short Story, Essay, Screenwriting & More On this page, you’ll find the web’s best and most updated selection of writing contests.
