Suddenly out of nowhere a man carrying a Nancy Kerrigan doppleganger on his shoulders walked by wearing only blue leggings and a green top hat. Completely blissed out by this extraordinary gymnastics feat, Hew and Scooby strolled onto the beach, failing to see the “No Dogs Allowed” sign.
So intrigued by the intense concentration of the man, Hew kept his eyes glued on the dynamic duo until they became silhouettes in the sun.
Wow. Life was good.
Totally stuck in a moment he couldn’t get out of, Hew took his eyes off Scooby for a split second and let his mind wander back to his 3rd grade English class. When he finally snapped back to reality, he turned around to find a female police officer holding Scooby by the collar.
“What’s going on?” Hew asked as his heart began to pulsate rapidly.
With her grip tight on Scooby’s collar, the officer glared disapprovingly at Hew and yelled, “Do Hew know Hew are breaking the law? NO DOGS ALLOWED!!!”
Innocence and fear filled Hew’s eyes as the waves crashed onto his feet, soaking his brand new Saks Fifth Avenue jumpsuit.
“I didn’t see the sign!” cried Hew as he rolled up his jumpsuit.
“I think Hew are lying to me!” the officer screamed back at Hew as she stormed away with Scooby.
Hew ran after her as he cried out in indignation, “Where are Hew taking Scooby?”
Without turning around the officer hollered out, “I’m taking him to the pound.”
Scooby’s life flashed in front of Hew’s eyes. NOOOOOOO.
What was supposed to be a nice little Sunday at the beach with Scooby turned into the worst day of Hew’s life. Left all alone, Hew gave Scooby one last look through the fenced window as he watched the police car drive away.
When the car was finally out of sight, Hew turned back to the beach gasping for air with tears rolling down his cheeks. He walked toward the water and followed Scooby’s paw prints in the sand until they were washed away by the water forever.
