“What are you looking at? Never seen a mule with a flower? They’re quite tasty you know, but I’m not going to eat this one.
No siree. I’ve seen me a potential mate and got a date.
Yep. I’m going to strut my stuff and wow my intended with my good looks, charm and sophistication. I’m bigger than she is, but we’re pretty alike, and I thought the flower was a nice touch. Ladies like flowers don’t they.
Fido up there offered his lady-love his favourite bone. The little minx accepted his precious gift, then went and buried it! And he’d dug it up all special like, even dunking it in a puddle to get it clean.
Fluff on the other hand lost his fishy offering altogether and got the bones thrown in his face. I dunno.There’s no pleasing some.
Ah, here she comes, and look! She’s got a flower too! Great minds think alike. See ya!”

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.
