18. a random memory from your childhood

when i was about 4 my best friend was a boy caled nicholas. one day we took all the pegs from the laundry bag and attached them to my darling pet labrador findlay. he was so gentle and patient and still growing into his skin so i can’t imagine we actually hurt him but he sat and let us do that to him until my mum came out and found us… it’s hard to know if this is a true “memory” or just something my brain has created because my parents have told the story so often
