Woman Left A Note For Her Neighbors To Ask If She Could Pet Their Dog

by Stephanie

Every morning, as Sarah Elkins headed into work for the day, she noticed a dog in the yard near her office. The adorable pup always seemed to be so happy, and Sarah desperately wanted to go over and pet her but didn't want to do so without the dog's owners' permission.

"I started telling her she was a pretty girl, and soon she started sticking her nose through the fence and wagging her tail, but I never wanted to intrude on her space," Elkins said. So, Sarah decided she just had to find a way to get permission to pat her.

“She saw me come out of my office door from her yard and greeted me at the gate with a full-body wag and a smile,” Elkins said.

Sarah decided she would make a sign to ask the dog's family if she could pet her.

Sarah hung the sign just inside the gate so the family would see and then waited patiently for a response. The next day, as Sarah was on her way to work, she was excited to see the family had indeed left an answer.

The note said, "OF COURSE! Her name is Sparrow, and she is a good girl." Naturally, Sarah was thrilled!

"I was a little nervous that the answer would be no, but it wasn’t," Elkins said.

"Even better, Sparrow was there with her tail wagging so fast it moved her whole body side to side."

Sarah now visits Sparrow every morning and throughout the day to give her lots of love.

"Sometimes she will even put her paws on the fence to get a hug," Elkins said. SO cute!
