Krystal had already helped to stabilize and treat an accident victim named Chelsea Baker. She turned her over to emergency personnel and went to help the other victim. She recognized the man, who she had seen earlier at the dog park.Triage 4

“Mr. Jenkins!” was all Krystal could exclaim as she got close to the man lying near his truck. Just a few short minutes ago she had seen Old Man Jenkins leave the dog park with his dog, Rex.

She never knew what his first name was and, like everyone else, called him Old Man Jenkins. He had the deserved reputation as a grumpy sort who kept to himself.Triage 3

The last time we met, we found Krystal Sullivan driving home from the Labrador Falls Dog Park with her dog Fantasia. A heavy rain had been falling and the conditions were dangerous.

In fact, they were so dangerous that Krystal came upon a car accident as she was driving home. Her nursing training skills kicked into gear and Krystal jumped out to treat people as if they had just walked into the Labrador Falls Regional Hospital where she worked in the emergency room.

She approached the sedan that had been badly damaged in the front. The person in the sedan was shaken but alert. The airbag had probably saved the young woman from serious injury.

Season 1, Episode 15

On our last episode, the patrons of the Labrador Falls dog park had all gone home, most of them seeking shelter in their cars from the summer rainstorm that had struck the area. Krystal Sullivan had managed to get the top up on her convertible and left to get on the main thoroughfare heading south toward her apartment in south Labrador Falls.

She slowed down suddenly as she saw bright lights in front of her.  “Oh my!” exclaimed Krystal. The familiar flashing of lights from the emergency vehicles was almost blinding to the eye. Krystal could see in front of her that there had been a recent accident. The police were stopping traffic and the cars had already begun to form a long line.Wreck 5
Krystal’s car was the fifth car away from the police car with its flashing lights on. A fire truck and paramedic vehicle were just arriving. The accident must have just happened within the last few minutes. From her vantage point about 50 feet away, Krystal tried to piece together what had happened.

Last time we met, people were on their way home from the dog park. A steady rain had begun to fall just before the dog park closed.

Some were more prepared than others. The Johnsons, owners of Tillie and Rover, and the Meyers’, owners of Chloe, had managed to keep dry using the umbrellas they had brought with them and jumped into the Johnsons’ SUV without getting wet.

For Krystal Sullivan, owner of Fantasia, it had become a nightmare. She had run around clumsily in her high-heeled sandals gathering up Fantasia on her leash.

As the Tail Wags – “The Edge of Wetness”

Season 1, Episode 13

We had just seen the Labrador Falls Dog Park become vacant. Most patrons left because it had started to rain and the diehard people who stayed were eventually chased away because the curfew had been reached and the lights were turned off.

Ben and Debbie Meyers lived close to the dog park and had walked there as they did almost every day. But because the rain was still coming down steadily, Al and Sandy Johnson offered them a ride in their SUV, which they gladly accepted.

Everyone piled in the big vehicle. It was a comedy of motion as people and dogs scrambled to get inside. The dogs did not care but the humans were trying to keep from getting wet and tracking too much mud into the car.
