"Hazel!! HAAZEL!"

Maria trampled through the blizzard, snowflakes abrasively hitting her face. Her little black poodle had ran off into the storm, escaping her tiny apartment.

Despite the weather conditions being ridiculously severe, some people had chosen to drive anyhow, so cars buzzed by, moving far too fast for any young poodle to escape.

"Hazzelll! Hazel?"

She saw a little black poodle running towards her, deep brown, soulful eyes filled with fear.

"Hazel. I'm so glad I found you!"

She scooped her up.

She looked around.

Shoot. I have no idea where I am...Where on earth am I?

Between the snow, her running, and the paralyzing fear of losing her pet, Maria Hamilton had completely lost track of her surroundings.

I have to get home. I absolutely have to get home.

After trudging through the snow, she found the street signs.

She was on the corner of Emmerson and Crosser.

3 miles to my place. With the dog. In this snow.

"C'mon, Hazel."

She commanded grumpily.

With the snow swirling around her, abrasively cooling her face and reddening her cheeks, she determinedly stomped through it all.

The poodle started barking.

"It's okay, sweetie. We're going to get home again. I can't believe you ran away like that," She scolded.

"Don't ever do that again."


Finally, the pair was home. Maria unlocked the door and brought her dog in, completely out of breath.

Thank goodness Hazel is okay.

She sat down and poured herself a hot cup of chamomile tea.
