Hi. My name is Duley. I am a dog. I don't have a home.

This is my diary.

If this is your first visit, you should start at the beginning.

Making friends

Well, I do get a bite now and then. I found part of a hamburger in the gutter earlier today and it was still pretty fresh. I would have eaten it even if it weren't. So I was feeling a little better. I wandered the streets more and started to see that there are other dogs out there like me, like this one.

I introduced myself.

"Hi! I'm Duley!"

The other dog looked forlorn but she answered, "I'm Sadie. I don't know where to find any food. I'm scared. I miss my people."

I guess this street life is new to her. I said, "I saw a hot dog stand nearby. Maybe they'll give us something to eat."

"I'm starved!". She looked at me hopefully. I thought maybe I shouldn't try to get her hopes up too high, but it was worth trying to get a hot dog. I found the way back to the hot dog stand. When we got there we didn't see anyone, but soon a nice young man came along and went behind the counter. He saw us both sitting outside looking at him in a friendly manner and he smiled.

"You want a little treat?" he asked us. Of course we both wagged our tails. He gave us each a whole hot dog, bun and all! I'm feeling good today!
