It was not a good day. June's morning had started off bad. She had jumped out of bed when her alarm clock went off but on her way to the bathroom had stubbed her little toe on the dresser. The pain from that had brought tears to eyes. In the process she had gotten a migraine. She tried desperately to find her migraine medication to no avail. Her first appointment would have to be across town and at this point she knew there was no way she was going to make it on time.

After hurriedly drinking a cup of coffee as she sped across town, June finally was at her client's home. As an interior designer she would go to the customer's home to evaluated their needs and give not only her opinion but an estimate of what the cost would be to redecorate and her fee.

June noted that the client's home was very large and spacious. A little outdated but she knew she could be of service here. Unfortunately, the fog she was in did not want to lift. Her head felt so heavy from the pain of the migraine it was hard to concentrate. Marge and Bill the homeowners, wanted to do a complete renovation. The client's dog, a little something-or-other, sat staring at her.

"What kind of dog is that?" June asked.

"We really don't know, we just recently rescued her from the pound."

"Oh, how nice." June said. She was about to stand when the little dog growled.

"Grrrrr"

"Is she growling at me?" June asked.

"I'm sure not, she has the sweetest disposition, we call her Pansy. She has never growled at anyone before." Marge said.

"Grrrrr!" Pansy growled when June attempted to rise again.

"Pansy, No. No growling" Marge reprimanded.

On June's next attempt at standing. Pansy jumped up and knocked her down. Frightened that the dog had attached her. She was on the verge of screaming when she blacked out. When she awakened there were paramedics standing over her and Pansy was licking her face. Pansy it turns out was trying to warn her that she was going to have a seizure.

June did get the contract to do the home for Marge and Bill. They were so completely satisfied with her work that they gave June a bonus and something else too. A little dog name Pansy who June renamed Angel. And anytime she growls, June knows that "Grrrr" means sit down and pay attention.

Good ending.Nice story.

Another good dog story. ...an unexpected twist.

Just take another look at your spelling and the way some of the sentences were structured to see how you can improve it.

Interesting take on the subject. It is a well proven fact that animals can detect an "aura" about a sick person, and many a person about to have a seizure has been forewarned by a pet. Good story!

I've heard stories about this type of thing before. I'm glad she got the job and her little angel! Nice work with the topic.
