Let me tell you a third story

JP the Wide-eyed Wanderer has got my number and nominated me for this challenge today. Thank you and hello!

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 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.

  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!
