It was a crisp morning on Newport Island, and Timmy Newport was chasing Dexter, the Newport family’s Golden Labrador. Tomorrow, Dexter would be turning 3 years old, but the Newport family had had him in their possession for about two and a half years. Timmy’s dad, Scott Newport, had found Dexter in the market one day in Miami. Miami was on the coast of Florida, and was an hour-long boat trip from Newport Island, there and back. Although Miami was only about four miles away from the Island, Scott was a good rower and could get there in about 30 minutes. Mr. Newport had to go to Miami Mondays through Fridays for work.

Newport as he immediately walked over to the leash section, where there were as many leashes as the hair on a girl’s head. The leashes were big, small, personalized, red, blue, black, and even rainbow. There were many sections of the store, but the leash section was by far the biggest section of the store.

I saw you faint, and I went over to check if you were okay. Then I brought you on my boat, and cleaned you up,” said this person.

When they were ready to go, Mr. Newport, made sure that Dexter was on the boat, because he didn’t want to lose him again. When they had reached their boat, Mr. Newport and Dexter hopped into the boat. Just as he had started to row back with Dexter, he looked back and asked the gentleman 's name. “It is Jacob,” said the man. “Well thank you, Jacob,” said Mr. Newport. “Anytime,” said Jacob.
