It was a very snowy winter day. The Neon Cop had to go to the police station to file some papers.
“Rick,” said Neon Cop’s wife, Suzie. “Do you have to go to work today? It is horrible out today.”
“Chief Lewis wants these papers today,” said Neon Cop. “I will be back home as quickly as I can.”
Neon Cop grabbed his briefcase and drove down the street. He turned down the next street and was about to get on the highway when he noticed a car on the side of the road.
Neon Cop took out his flashlight from the back seat. He had to trudge through a snow drift about a foot deep. Once he was at the car, he shone his flashlight inside it. He saw a box on the back seat and then he saw what looked like a puppy.
The car was locked. Neon Cop saw there was nobody around. He took his flashlight and busted the window on the driver’s side. He reached in and unlocked the door. The car was very cold inside. Neon Cop took the box out of that car and put it into his car. As he set it down, he saw there were three of the cutest puppies he had ever seen. They were cold and hungry.
Neon Cop took a picture of the car and the license plate and then he drove to the police station. He took the puppies inside with him. He gave them a bowl of milk and found a few day old sandwiches in the fridge. He took the meat out of them and fed it to the puppies. He took off his jacket and laid it on the floor. The puppies curled up on it. The one pup licked his hand.
“What is this?” asked Chief Lewis, seeing the puppies. “Are we a dog pound now?”
Neon Cop explained to the chief what happened.
“There was a car stolen yesterday,” said Chief Lewis. “The woman was frantic because she said her puppies were in a box in the back seat.”
“This has to be them,” said Neon Cop.
Chief Lewis called the woman. She lived just around the corner of the police station. She was there in about fifteen minutes.
“Oh my!” cried the woman. “These are my puppies. I am so glad they are okay.”
Neon Cop picked the puppies up and handed them to the woman. The last puppy clung onto him and wouldn’t let go.
“You have a friend there,” said the woman.
“It certainly looks that way,” said Neon Cop, petting the puppy on the head. “This one seems to like me.”
“He’s yours if you want him,” said the woman.
“Seriously,” said Neon Cop.
“Yes,” said the woman. “I need to find homes for two of them.”
“Here Chief,” said Neon Cop, handing him one of the other puppies.
The puppy immediately licked the chief’s face. The chief fell in love with it instantly.
“That is settled,” said the woman. “Now, what about my car?”
