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.
