A Dog Named Jewel

There once was a dog named jewel

this dog was named jewel

this dog had gotten the name jewel from miners while he was just a pup

Jewel had protected and rescued many miners within the mines

 She was also able to sniff out any jewels within the mine before any miners could

Jewel had always been a special dog and everyone knew it

with a copper and red sleek coat

she’d stay out in the sun at the entrance of the mine like a burning fire embracing the night sky

as she grew older from a pup she had gotten wounded herself in the mines

when the miners said their goodbyes and took her in to the hospital to turn her into them as a stray that she had been

the hospital cleaned her wounds and recovered her health and depressed heart

 she was no longer able to run the ruins of the mines anymore from the injuries that she sustained

however when she was all better the hospital put Jewel up for rescue and adoption

soon after a father and his young boy came into the hospital to stop by to see what pups they could take home

searching the announcements for several prospects looking for good homes

they came across Jewels and immediately fell in love with her

together they knew she was the puppy for them

especially for the little boy to have again a new friend and companion

which this was very important to his father for he had just not long before lost his mother

so they set in an application to give Jewel the best care and good loving home that she had needed to go home somewhere

not even a week had passed when the phone had rung and the young boy picked it up suddenly before his father could do so

answering he said “Hello, you there?”

on the other end a women responded “yes” is this the Williams?

the boy answered “I get daddy hang on”

with that his father took the phone and in a subtle calming voice replied “Hello, Willas Williams here”

the women on the other end said “hello mr Williams, this is the animal hospital calling”

“Sir did you put in an application for  adoption of a young pup?”

with an excited and hope filled voice he replied “yes”

the women then interrupted and said “we got and read your profile adoption application and  we feel that you are the best fulfilled candidate for Jewels”  she continued “Jewels is a very special and wonderful pup who came from a world of stories and history”

“Mr Willas when could you come get her”

with excitement still in his voice he replied

“right now, we’ll come immediately”

looking at his young son he hung up the call

the boy asked “Daddy what’s going on”

his father replied “Son get your coat on we have to take a run into town”

doing as his father had asked he ran for his coat and then to the truck

his father climbed in and began the ignition

 not saying a word for he had wanted to surprise his boy

as they approached the hospital the father said

“I thought we’d go take a ride into town to see how the adoption was doing”

not letting the boy in on the fact that was what the phone call was

when they approached the desk the women behind the counter said

“hello, may I help assist you with something”

Mr. Willas Williams responded

 “yes we’d like to see how Jewel is coming along”

“we’d like to take her home”

the boy said “Pa are you sure we can do that”

with a wink and a twinkle in his eyes he looked down at his son and said

“you’ve got to believe son”

as he told his son those words the women returned and said

“Mr. Willas I just need you to sign some small forms, it’s protocol for every adoption case”

when he had finished the papers the clerk replied

“here you go Mr. Willas she is all yours. please enjoy your new addition”

as she then handed Jewel over to Mr. Willas Willams

The boy terrifically excited said

“dad does this mean she is ours”

The father replied “she is ours son”

together the now three Williams returned home with their new jewel

from that day forth the boy was happier than ever

and had forgotten how depressed and  lonely he had been from the loss of his mother

his father felt accomplishment and satisfaction for he had done exactly what he had gone out to do

to find a new friend and companion for this little boy who had missed his mom so

no matter where the boy went Jewel always remained nearby and at his side protecting this boy in every way

 the two lived happily ever after as best friends

Mr. Willas was proud and relaxed as his son was definitely once again happy
