"Let's get him into the car I know a twenty-four clinic I use for Hammie". After they got Oso into the car and with the windows down Criss and Romona went to the vet. At the vet Franklin was cleaning up some dog vomit when a car pulled up. He saw it was Criss and another girl with a dog. "Martha emergency!!"he called out putting the mop away. He opened the door and the whiff of skunk hit like a ton of bricks. "Bring a mask dog got sprayed and met a porcupine to boot" putting his hand over his nose. Martha came out with a mask over her nose and saw Criss who had the top of his coat over his nose. "Who's this guy?"she asked as Romona came in. "This is Oso my therpy dog I think he met a skunk and a porcupine that didn't want to play with him" as she coughed.
"Well first we're going to knock Oso out and get those quills out than give him a good bath. Why don't you wait here and get some fresh air" she suggested. "Thanks"Criss remarked and they went outside. Romona took a few deep breaths as Criss shut the back of the car. "God another a minute I think I was going to gag"Romona said. "Me too" as Criss opened the door to sit down. "Criss you said that you lost a dog and you saw him pass away". "Yea I had just got home when Dini, that was his name was running around the house. I opened the door and he came rushing out like a bullet. Before I could grab him he ran out to the street and a car hit him" wiping a tear away. Romona went over to Criss. "Oh Criss I'm so sorry" she remarkeed putting her hand on his shoulder.
"I've been blaming myself thinking if I had just closed that door faster Dini would still be alive" wiping the tears away. "Criss it isn't anyone's fault that Dini died it was an accident pure and simple". "Everyone keeps telling me that but-". Romona gave Criss a hug. "How about this Christopher when you feel up to it I know a kennel that you and Sandra can go to to pick out a new dog". "Thanks Romona why don't we go in and see how Oso's doing". "All right" and they went in. When Sandra woke up Criss wasn't in bed so she went downstairs and found Criss just coming in the door. "Christopher where have you been?". "The vet Romona's dog met a skunk and a porcupine that didn't want to play". "Thatstink"Sandra remarked. "Literal but Oso all right they got the quills out and he smells much (yawn) better"he replied. "Why don't you catch some shut eye for a while". "All right". He gave Sandra a kiss and went upstairs.
