Catch and Release
This was written for Six Sentence Story over at Denise’s.
Liberty, an Irish Setter, was a beautiful, well behaved, dog that my mom and dad had rescued back in the late ’70s.
She was funny as when we’d go for car rides, she wouldn’t do her business anywhere other than in our backyard. It didn’t matter if she was away from the house for six hours, she’d hold until she got home.
One day I was watching her in the backyard playing catch and release with a frog that came to visit.
She’d catch the frog, hold it in her mouth for a few seconds, then let it go and then run and catch it again, and again.
Liberty was one of the gentlest dogs I’ve ever known.
