Medieval romance eh?
Now that’s a bit of a challenge!

He was no hero, but he was in love.
He was also cunning and resourceful, so his quest for proof of his undying devotion was well within his means and capabilities.
Travelling by night, he weaved his way unseen through buildings, obstacles and barriers of varying size, avoiding the monsters that howled at his passing, eyes that glinted in the gloom and the bright lights that mysteriously appeared in the darkness should he become a little careless out in the open.
His sense of smell alerted him that he was near to his quarry.
He trusted no-one, especially those that appeared harmless when in fact they were on a mission to kill with their poisons and potions.

He dived in, fighting off the vermin determined to thwart his efforts and claim victory. In a frenzy of blood and torn limbs, they slunk away defeated, leaving him to collect his prize and return to his lady. He smiled at the thought of her, his Little Vixen.

As she nursed his pups, he dropped the chicken carcass at her feet, easy pickings from the dumpster behind the takeaway in town, then settled down to lick his wounds.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
