It became clear to Daisy that the dog was not happy that she stayed so close to him when he was ready to eat. He let out a few barks at Daisy, which alarmed her slightly, but she remained calm and started to call him quietly. Eventually, he came closer, little by little.
By this point, the dog was too hungry to refuse the food, and slowly but surely, he crept closer and closer to the food. Daisy observed that his muscles seemed rather tense as if he was ready to bolt at any moment. When he finished his food, Daisy was able to stroke him, and as she ran her fingers through his fur, she felt his mysterious collar once again.
A Better Life
Daisy knew that they had to move slowly with the stray and that it might take a few days to coax him to their place. She was also thrilled at the opportunity to give a stray dog a better life. Seeing how her bond with the Labrador had evolved over the days since she first saw him warmed her heart.
By now, he was already coming closer to her when she entered the park, and it made her feel like he was beginning to trust her. It seems they were successful after all, and maybe it would not be much longer until he became one of the children in their home.
A Slight Change
Previous times when Daisy went to feed the dog, she would leave the food out for him and slowly back away to give him his space. Although, today, she decided to try something different. She thought that it would be a good idea to see how the dog would react if she stayed nearby after he had received his food.
At first, the dog froze when he realized that Daisy was staying by his side for mealtime. She was slightly nervous but tried to keep calm and cool about things. She knew that a dog could easily do something crazy like run away at the inkling of feeling unsafe.
A Hidden Collar
Daisy thought she'd try to take another look at the collar that was hiding behind the dog's fur. It was the same color as his fur, so it was easy to forget the first time she looked at it. The dog also had a very thick coat, so it was not difficult for the collar to get lost in between all the hairs.
Perhaps she was wrong all along, and maybe this dog did have a loving family all along. Either way, she was going to find out what the meaning was behind the mysterious message on the collar, even if it was the last thing that she was gonna do.
Still Doesn't Make Sense
Daisy spun the collar around to try and get to the bottom of what the written text said. The doggo was so calm this time, so she could really get closer to the tag to get a proper look. Again, she tried to see if there was any useful information on the tag, but again, she was just reminded of the mysterious text that had been stamped into his collar's tag.
She was just as puzzled as before when she tried to make out what the tag had written on it. Once again, she was reminded why she just left it the last time. It didn't make any sense then, and it doesn't make any sense now.
