The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS May 27/17

Linda’s prompt this week is ‘Smell’.

Maggie’s sense of smell is amazing.
I could fill this post with numbers and statistics that would leave you in awe, but that’s already been done by bloggers and experts far better than I, and besides is outside ‘the rules’ of this challenge if I had to look anything up.

On numerous occasions whilst out walking, Maggie has gone into overdrive, pacing the hedgerows back and forth, not giving up, nose to the ground, periodically sniffing the air only to put her nose back in the undergrowth.
Her tail is a whirlwind of rotation and activity as her excitement increases.
She senses.
She smells.
She knows.
She flushes them out.
A frantic flutter of panicked wings reveals her quarry, ptarmegon, partridge or pheasant, the Three Ps of the countryside, either for sport or dinner.

She sits, no need to chase, smug and satisfied.
Point made, job done.

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! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. 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.

  1. Is there anyway you can send me the exact link to ping back. What I put in is not working.

    • The link in my post takes you to Linda’s blog and the SoCS is her top entry. If you click on the ‘comments’ (currently 35) on the left hand side under today’s date, it will take you to her list of comments where you can leave your link for your contribution. Glad you’ve joined in.

      • I got it. I can’t do that because I use my phone. Nonetheless after much configuring it is there. Thank you!! I have done it before, as well as one-liner-Wednesday. Plan to make them weekly for me. Since I did even submit a badge entry for the one-liner contest. I love prompts they are so useful 😄
