Thanks to Priceless Joy for hosting the FFftAW prompt each week.
I decided to take Lucy for a walk in the park today. She’s an ‘indoor’ raptor but she plays outside in our large yard.
I remember when we found her four-years -ago…
“Dad, what’s this?” I asked.
” It’s hatching from the egg.” He said. We both watched as a tiny baby raptor was born.
“She won’t be big. She’s a tiny version of a raptor.” We told my Mom.
She sighed. “I heard that same comment about the last pet we had.” Lucy squeaked. She was Mom’s girl from then on.
I put Lucy’s leash on, petting on her belly. Lucy’s docile and loves our family. She even tries to lay beside us at night.
I set Lucy free on the off leash trail. She catches a couple of rabbits, devouring them.
A women goes by with her two mastiffs: “That animal is an abomination.”
I shrug.”She ate a poodle once. But she’s much better now.”
