JusJoJan writing prompt: Jan 2

Today’s prompt word for Just Jot January is Boisterous , provided by Dan Antion

One of the things about dog ownership is watching your puppy grow.
They seem to have an invisible on/off switch, one minute they’re bombing around like some demented furball on speed, the next they are cute and quiet as they lie dreaming in their beds.
Sometimes though the boisterousness can get a little out of hand and I remember from many years past my friend’s dog wanting to play with my new pup and ended up breaking her leg. My friend was devastated, but come to think of it, didn’t offer to contribute towards the medical bill!
It was what the vet called a greenstick break, and she was in plaster for a few weeks.
It didn’t stop her though. Boisterous now included us getting donked on the head until she got used to the added weight, and then the One, Two, Three, SWING movement as she went up the stairs. Coming down was hilarious, a simple bump, bump, bump, as her cast hit every step.

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 recently lost our beloved dog 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, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. 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.

  2. I giggled at your reference to the demented fur ball. Describes my 9 month old puppy perfectly. Loved this!

    Can definitely elate to this! Even at 7yrs old our Archie still behaves like a pup!
