they had never seen this dog before
I've never seen anything like this.
they didn't understand what she was doing
At first, they were taken by surprise.
It was almost as if she was waiting for them.
They knew it was something that couldn't wait.
"It really was a miracle"
They couldn't give up hope yet
It was the last thing anyone expected them to do.
they couldn't understand why the dog was acting so strangely.
