FFfAW Challenge – 180th

Our 180th challenge!

Isn’t this little chap a cutie? Thanks Yinglan

‘Excuse me,’ said a little voice.
Esme looked around and saw no-one.
‘Over here. On the glass stand.’
All she could see was a small porcelain figure of a dog stuck in a doughnut.
‘Yes, that’s me.’ It said.
‘Er, hello?”
‘I wonder if you’d be so kind as to give me a hand.’
‘Um, sure. What can I do?’
‘It was the sprinkles that did it. I love sprinkles, but they seem to have ganged up on me somewhat and trapped me within, sotospeak.’
‘But you’re a figurine, how…………’
‘Yes, yes, I know. But I really need to get out of here. I’m supposed to be on a diet and there’ll be hell to pay if I’m caught in this predicament. Can you grab a paw……….. ‘
‘DON’T YOU DARE TOUCH THAT!’ boomed a voice.
Esme jumped, nearly knocking the glass stand flying.
An old lady hurried across and explained her husband had been toying with customers as they browsed.
She chuckled.
‘Henry! Get yourself out here!! You’ve scared the poor lass half to death!’

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.
