First Line Friday: May 25th, 2018

Dylan’s turn this week with First Line Friday.
Dylan gives us the first line for our story and we add the rest.
My short story is entitled
Not All Dogs Bite

The thieves took everything except the dog.
And that was their undoing.
You see, Jax was no ordinary dog, loyal to just one master and no other.
Being new to the area, no-one knew what he and his owner did before retirement.
If they had, the thieves would have left well alone.
He knew who they were of course, and would be able to pick them out in a crowd. Old habits and training die hard. There was life in the old nose yet, and it wouldn’t just be their belongings that were recovered.
Jax stood on the balcony waiting for his master’s return.
Then the fun would start.
Who would suspect a dog of his size and calibre had been one of the best sniffer dogs in the country.

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.

    I was thinking maybe Superman and Krypto for a second, but if that were the case, the thieves would never have gotten past the door.

    I’ve chosen this as my Flash Fiction reblog, not because of the date, but because of the day and Jen Goldie’s post nudged my memory.
