Ginger, Johnny's service dog, is worried about her young master, who is currently in the hospital, in the Intensive Care Unit, fighting for his life.

Arf! Ginger here.

I'm afraid I'm not in the best frame of mind right now: myJohnny, my young charge, my master, is in the Human Hospital. He got sick early Saturday morning; he had a convulsion, and he is now in the Expensive Care ward.

(Ginger meant Intensive Care ward.)

From the sounds of it, it doesn't sound like myJohnny is doing good at all. He is in bed, and he isn't really talking to anyone. He is unable to eat right now (he has a tube up his nose), and he is breathing with help. He doesn't really know what's going on around him, and the Human Doctors say he may have something wrong with his brain--something called Brain Damage.

MyJohnny's daddy has been going to the Human Hospital to see him; when he comes home from the Human Hospital, he looks so sad; it's enough to break my Little Doggie Heart because I'm scared that myJohnny has died or taken a turn for the worse--and he's already bad sick now as it is.

MyJohnny's mommy hasn't been able to go to see myJohnny; she is on bedrest. She is going to have two puppies soon; she is really getting big in the belly area. If she is up, it's only to go to her vet's appointment, and if she is up, she has to sit in a wheelchair, just like myJohnny does. It's getting hard for her to get around, so this is why she uses the wheelchair.

The Human Kids have been worried about their brother, as they call myJohnny. They hang around the house, moping or wearing sad faces, and it is really upsetting me! I hate not having myJohnny here; it is too quiet, and the nurses and doctors get mad if I come to the Human Hospital!

They don't understand that I am a working Dog; I am a Service Dog; it is my Job to be with my Master through times of health or sickness; yet they feel I have fleas or germs, so they tell me not to come to the Human Hospital, which makes me madder'n a Pit Bull!

So as a result, I have to stay home. I guess the Humans think I am going to knock over the monitoring equipment or pull out IV tubes, so there you go. I have been banished from seeing myJohnny.

I personally think this is a Big Mistake. What if something were to happen to myJohnny and I wasn't there? I'd feel terrible, and I'd somehow feel responsible for his death!

Well, I just made myself cry again, so I am going to go outside and howl at the moon; maybe other Dogs will join me in my Plight and feel sorry for me.

I might as well throw myself a Pity Party. I want myJohnny home; I want myJohnny to get out of that stupid Human Hospital; I want my Master to get better!!

Oh! those that said that animals dont feel, think or yearn...those are the ones that never loved one.

My prayers go out to your Jhonny. I hope he is home soon so you can take care of him again.

Excellent write Karen, I am sure our loved pets do think and feel this way. Thank you for sharing.

A very creative twist. Animals may not be able to verbally talk, but they express themselves in many ways that let us know they have deep feelings such as you've expressed in your story.

If animals could talk humanese I am sure they would sound a lot like Johnnie's friend here. Well done Karen.
