It was the day Heather Beather was supposed to have her surgery. I had accompanied Scottie Mom to the V-E-T. Together, we were headed back to the Scottie House. Scottie Mom in the driver's seat. Me in the passenger seat. Scottie Mom looked sad. So serious. It was very quiet. We were stopped at a stoplight when all of a sudden, I heard it: a loud, long cry of a train passing by us.
At first, I just looked around, startled by the noisy outburst. As the train kept blowing its whistle, I decided it was looking for me and I needed to return its call to let it know I was there. So, I dug deep down inside me and let out an ArRRrOo for the first time in my Scottie life! Scottie Mom looked freaked out at first. It took her a minute to figure out from where that noise was coming. Then, she looked at me with wide eyes as if she was thinking, "Could it be? Is he actually...ArRRrOo-ing?!"
Silly Scottie Mom scrambled to find her phone to record this life moment for our friends to witness. Now, she was laughing and looked so excited. I was happy to see her smiling again. As soon as she brought out the phone and hit the record button, I stopped my ArRRrOo thinking she wanted me to smile for the camera like I normally do. Scottie Mom laughed and said, "Of course..." Then, she patted me on the head and told me what a good boy I was. And as quickly as my first ArRRrOo came and went, so too, did the very train that inspired it. When did you first hear your pup ArRRrOo?
