Sally and Petra sat on the sleepers and stared down the tracks.
They did this quite often actually, sometimes for hours.
Petra had all the patience in the world and was content to sit.
Sally on the other hand was a bundle of nerves, but had her moments.
It was a beautiful evening.
Neither had any place to be or go, and the tracks had been abandoned months ago so there was no risk of them getting injured by a train.
Mind you, both would feel the vibration way before its arrival, so they just sat and in this instance, watched the sunset.
Sally’s tummy rumbled and Petra gave her a withering look.
‘OK.’ she said. ‘You win. I’ll go and fetch your ball!’
Sally’s tail wagged enthusiastically.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination 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! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.

  6. There is nothing like the friendship that you share with a dog.

    • It’s a great picture, is it not?
      My GSD wouldn’t ‘fetch’., sort of a you threw it, you fetch it attitude. Now Maggie was different, she’d pinch another dog’s thrown ball and not give it back!
