Jane Jago’s Daily Drabble – Two Hundred and Thirteen

Nobody wanted Blue because he wasn’t pretty. But he had a big heart, and the girls at the shelter refused to give up on him.

On the day when a decision on the unwanted dog’s future had to be faced, a family came along looking for a companion for a lonely, bullied child. The boy walked among the cages with a closed expression until he saw Blue. His eyes lit up, and a smile lifted the sorrow from his face.

Blue thumped his tail and the boy beamed.

“Mum,” he said. “That’s my dog. He understands because he’s ugly too…”
