The night finally came to an end in the city of Labrador Falls. The evening’s events included a gathering of many dogs at the Labrador Falls Dog Park, including a dog fight (Samson) and an announcement of impending motherhood (Chloe).

Then came the surprise rainstorm about the time the park was ready to close. On the way home there was a bad car accident that caused an injury to one of the dog owners (Old Man Jenkins).

As the Tail Wags – “The Dog Version”

Last time, we were at the Johnson house and things had gotten chaotic until peace was restored. Three dogs came charging into the house from outside. Two of the dogs belonged to Al and Sandy Johnson and the other belonged to Old Man Jenkins from next door.

A fourth dog was added to the mix when Krystal Sullivan went to her car and brought in her yellow lab, Fantasia. All four dogs had been at the dog park earlier that night. Now they were all in the Johnsons’ back yard.

“So, Rex. Tell us all about the accident,” said Tillie. Tillie and Rex were the dog equivalent of boyfriend and girlfriend. Although Rex lived right next door, there was a fence between them so they really only got to spend time together when both were at the dog park.

As the Tail Wags – “Nighttime Attack”

There was quite a commotion just as we left off last time in Labrador Falls, at the home of Al and Sandy Johnson. Fellow dog owner Krystal Sullivan had come to their door looking for the dog who lived next door to them. It’s owner, Mr. Jenkins, had been in a car accident and was in the hospital. Krystal had set out to try to find the man’s dog, Rex.

Both women had just stepped out in the back yard looking for Sandy’s husband, Al. All of a sudden there was a big commotion as Krystal let out a scream of terror. She thought she was being attacked by three dogs. She instinctively turned her back and crouched low, awaiting impact.

There were three dogs all right, but these were happy dogs. They came up to the two women and were licking and wagging their tails. In the heat of the moment it seemed as if the dogs were attacking, when actually they were just coming back inside from being outdoors.

Last time we met, the Johnsons had received a late night visit from Krystal Sullivan who had been trying to locate the lost dog of David Jenkins. Mr. Jenkins had been involved in a traffic accident and was taken to the hospital. Meanwhile, his dog Rex, who was with him during the accident, was missing.

Krystal had gone looking for Rex and decided to try the man’s house in case the dog had somehow found his way back home. When she didn’t see the dog at his house on Elmwood, Krystal knocked on the neighbor’s house next door. Unbeknownst to her, this was the home of the Johnsons whom she had just seen earlier that evening at the Labrador Falls Dog Park.

On our last visit, we were at the Johnson residence where Mr. Johnson had just taken his dogs, Tillie and Rover out in the back yard for one last stop at the doggie restroom before going to bed for the night. The dogs heard something outside and were barking. Al Johnson also heard the noise and wondered if it was neighborhood kids.

Sandy Johnson had heard the commotion from inside their home and was walking to the back to check it out when she was startled by the chime of the front door bell. After nearly leaping a foot in the air, Sandy reversed her footing and headed toward the front door.

“Who would be coming here at this time of night?” she said under her breath. Shortly after the door chime had sounded there was impatient knocking as well. “Hold on. I’m coming!” shouted Sandy, beginning to get perturbed. She approached the front door cautiously.

Season 1, Episode 19

We had left off with Krystal Sullivan driving on the east side of Labrador Falls. She was looking for the home of David Jenkins, who had been involved in a bad car accident.

His dog Rex was missing among the confusion in the aftermath of the accident. Jenkins had been treated and taken to the hospital and could not look for his dog himself.

Krystal, a nurse who had helped those at the accident scene, promised to look for Mr. Jenkins’ dog. She had searched the surrounding area with no luck.

The only thing she could think of was to search near the man’s home. Perhaps Rex would recognize where he was and make his way home.

Meanwhile, Al and Sandy Johnson had just arrived home in their SUV with their dogs, Tillie and Rover. They had been to the Labrador Falls Dog Park when the rainstorm came.

They gave a ride to their friends, Ben and Debbie Meyers, who lived close to the dog park and had walked there with their dog, Chloe.

Season 1, Episode 18

Last time we met, there was a bad accident on the streets of Labrador Falls late on a warm summer night. A surprise rainstorm had made the roads slippery and travel hazardous. The patrons from the dog park were making their way home.

Krystal Sullivan was a nurse who had left the dog park with her dog, Fantasia, later than most because she was struggling to put the roof on her convertible. She was soaking wet by the time she made it onto the road heading toward south Labrador Falls. She had seen the flashing lights of a traffic accident in front of her.

She got out and began to help with some of the accident victims because emergency personnel were still on their way. She had already helped a young woman with a broken arm and was now focusing her attention on a man who she recognized from the dog park named David Jenkins.
