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